    Hi all,

    I recently set up this little tank. Quite an impressive all-in-one system suitable for beginners.

    I'll update videos every week and post photos as and when.

    Better light distribution than on the Home 25. Looks really nice!

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with low maintenance planting, I do not think that difficult plants make a better aqua scape than easier plants, as seen in this tank.:thumbup:
    Nice to see more of you on Youtube George.

    Nice plant list, it'll be interesting to see how the new ones do.

    Neat little set up we sell this stuff in the shop I work, I always wondered what they'd look like when done professionally, now I know.

    I was gonna ask how do you find the quality of the aquafluer over the tropica plants, but I think in the other video you've answered my question :)

    I'm looking forward of some close up shots of the, anubias nana bonsai, sturogyens portobello, altrantra rosefellia mini (pardon my terrible spelling).

    Thanks for the interesting video.

    Tank looks great.

    I used to have two of the smaller home tanks. I saw this model in a local MA on Monday and it does look very nice. It represents good value for money I think.

    The only bugbear is the way the lights are mounted on the hinged lid. If you lift the lid up to complete any maintenance work you lose the lighting.

    Thanks guys. Glad you like the video. As I get more experienced I will produce better videos with close-ups, panning etc. I'll get some close-up pics soon too.

    Cheers

    Great looking tank George. It looks really smart. I'm impressed with the CO2 bubbles! I'm working on a setup for our 50 gallon tank, possibly using a fire extinguisher. What do you think? We've got a little tank with a "waterplant system" from ISTA, a cheapy not making bubbles... I don't think it's doing much of a good job.

    Thanks, Su. :)

    In a 50 gal. I would definitely recommend a pressurised system and fire extinguishers are good value for money. I like inline diffusers for tanks over 20 gal. with a powerful external filter to obtain good circulation.

    I bought a new lens yesterday - Canon 50mm f1.8 STM. It replaces the classic nifty fifty and has better optics, and build quality.

    Here's a couple of samples.

    Hi all,

    Week 3 update. I'm genuinely impressed with this little set-up. Perfect for first time 'scapers on a budget.
