    Things got a little hectic recently and I had to put the tank on auto pilot for the past five months. The tank has been running without any CO2 and minimal water changes/fertilisers for that time.

    Sorry - I’ll try and update more frequently.

    If that's a current picture after 5 months of autopilot, no CO2 or ferts and infrequent water changes then:

    1, you have a beautiful teeny tiny tank that is as balanced as say BigToms :clap:

    2, and I've gone right off you :lol:

    Glad to see you back Mr. Teapot :D

    5 months autopilot and your tank looks like that? Incredible.

    Hi Mr. Teapot, inspirational journal,

    I was wondering what happened to the tank?

    Is it still running on 'autopilot'?

    Building work on my house forced me to ask a relative to look after both tanks with the expected consequences. I’m aiming to start a new journal in the new year...hopefully!

    Awww...

    Since I just signed up here a few days ago, I gotta say: I have lost count of how many times I've read this journal. Such a beautiful tank, and a huge inspiration.
    Looking forward to whatever you make next.

    You have inspired me to merge emersed growing with my new aquascape. Just wish that there was a suitable pitcher plant I could easily obtain. Might have to go with orchids
