For me crypt costata would fill in nicely behind the wood with blyxa japonica at the rear to the left, or a nice big bush of myrophilium behind the wood, with some narrow leaf Java fern Attached to the wood.

Never had any luck with myriophyllum in the past but what an attractive plant it is. Now I love crypts but can't find the one you mentioned in this dennerele book.

I am liking that trolley idea for transporting the containers of RO water and the pump all attached for pumping it straight in to the tank. Brilliant!

Steve.

I love your hardscape Kirk.:) Looking forward to seeing this settle in. It's going to be a real beauty in a couple of weeks time.

Thanks mate, I'm holding off pics for a bit as growth is slow I'm still tinkering with co2 light etc......but I'm not medling with the scape I'm trying to be patient.

I'm itching to mess with a scape..

Maybe ill talk my son into a fresh arrangement as I've just picked up his replacement light this morning.:D

That size tank would look nice with Island layout. Next time you fiddle with it leave plants out for a couple of days to see if you can live with your hardscape.

Hi all, quick couple of pics of my 10yrs old sons tank.

It was desperate for a proper gravel clean and the bba removed via pressure washing stones and wood.

We're quite suprized how bright his new aquael leddy smart light is, more than enough for his lowtech.

Well has been a while since I updated the journal.

Tank has been ran fishless for sometime,so added some ottos and some strawberry rasboras for something to watch,now I get the fascination with ottos they are great characters.:)

Sorry about reflection and it's a phone pic.:) not much has happened in mths other than plants dying the usual algae here and there and a great snail population.

Hopfully the fish will stop me ripping the tank apart again.

As for my lads tank it's doing well he's had a shrimp boom and I'll add pics later.:)

Hi Kirk, Fab thread :thumbup: Congratulations on the baby shrimp :thumbup:
Thankyou mate . This has been the toughest garden so far
. Firstly a whole new set of problems with the different dimensions shallower for a start. Also thinking i know it all, and paying little attention to the simple things, landed me in the old what's wrong, I've messed with things too much, and what did I do that got that nice new growth that's again, dying? .:D

We all know that feeling. our journals go quite.......... and we say we've been busy ;) .
The srimplets have made things all worth while, but they are expensive ones.
It's cheaper to buy some from a member here and pay postage, than it is to purchase them from our son .:) his cheeky smile disappeared when I said I'd invoice him for tank changes and electricity.:D
