Gary, absolutely sublime. My first tank was a trigon 190 in beech so my journey started with this tank many many years ago. Fond memories and you have done yours some serious justice. Both thumbs up! Hooked and watching

Any updates gary?

p.s. how have you avoided reflections?

Hi Jim, funny you should mention updates, I took a few photos yesterday so I will get them uploaded later :)

Do you mean reflections with the camera on the front?

Thank you, nice to hear great comments such as yours and always nice to hear from other trigon owners :)

I meant reflections on the sides I cant seem to get away from having mirrored sides...

Ah right, I used black board paint on the back which I've found gives a neat finish and dries matt black - what are you using on yours then?

wow

you are the master of the corner tank!

your rescape has inspired me to take stuff out and use space more carefully in the trigon.

Cheers Jim, I think it will look better when the E.tenellus fills out more... As you know trigons are a big learning curve!

Looking great! Definite inspiration for those struggling to scape a corner. Just watch though the temperature clashes of your fish - rams like it hot but the hillstream loaches like it pretty cool and well oxygenated.

I took a few photos today, so thought I'd just show how its doing - the plants are filling in nicely and the moss has gone bonkers! it all seems to be ticking along nicely considering I'm only spending about an hour a week on it now at water change time.

I am getting an itch to do a re-scape though as I have some ideas! :woot:

looking really nice have you thought about entering it into one of the scaping competitions?

Cheers Jim.... I'd like to yes, but only know of the IAPLC one, not sure if there are more? :wideyed:

Really nice Gary. That moss looks lush. Looks like youve triumphed on the corner tank scaping once again
