Hopefully once the tank fills out to its true potential the shrimp will be too preocupied with the rest of your tank to keep covering your HC. Stunning tank, i've skipped through a few pages and don't recall seeing what lighting specs your using

Lovely, just lovely. Doesn't it make you wish you had it at home though? :)

I'm trying to talk my local MA into letting me scape one of their tanks, trouble is I just hope its not better than any of my tanks!!

but sam, you allways want it to better than your last tank right?.....or what's the point?. why create something that's of a lesser standard than your last?

anyhow, cheers for the words. it is hard to keep track of what I'm up to. i sometimes forget what i'm doing/saying. :p

i'm even planning a 200cm tank 8) to get better you just need to scape,scape and then some more scaping ;)

Go for it mate. I'm doing the same for a brand new MA store that's not opened yet.

I'd encourage other UKAPS members to do the same for their LFS. Take in a photo and explain what you can do. Spread the word!

Tank's looking sweet, Mark. I usually add shrimp after HC has rooted... ;)

cheers mate, i'm pleased with it. the problem with the shrimp is not so much them up rooting, it's the fact that they just chuck the nature soil all over. i suppose waiting until i get good coverage would help.

it looks like the ukaps massive could take over MA stores :p

Hehe, cheeky shrimps.

My LFS has an open night next week, hopefully when I'm there I'm going to discuss a few things with them, maybe the possibility of doing a display tank when they setup a new planted one. The only problem is that they already have beautiful planted tanks. If not I'll have a chat with them about it when I pickup my CRS.

A classic fish choice. Probably one of the tightest schooling tetra too. Superb for photography if they colour up well.

Do you know which species it is?
