Great stuff, all! :clap:

Should definitely be the best turnout the UK have had so far since the 10 years the contest has been running, even if a few on the list don't enter.
 
Crackin list!

Im just screaming at my hemianthus.. grow damn you!!!
 
I'm thinking a last minute 120x45x45 that I set up last weekend using plants leftover from the TV show. I like a challenge!

Do It, You Know you want to
We'll see mate.

Two and a half months is pushing it a bit for a finished 'scape. Fingers crossed!

Well, not for you eh?! That's long-term!! 😉 :lol: :lol:

Aren't you entering, Mark?! Chicken?!?! :lol:

next year mate.
Didn't you say that last year?!

Just kiddin' mate. With your 'scaping and photography skills I reckon you'll do very well, whenever you decide to enter.

and I'll probably end up saying it again next year :lol:

seriously though, my next 120cm is specifically for IAPLC 2011....now that was the kiss of death! :shifty:
 
if my plants will grow as expected I will enter too if not I will leave it till next year

it would be interesting.
 
Well its the final run into the deadline for this years ADA competition and I am just wondering how everyone is getting on.All the last minute trimming, photographing, cleaning of tanks/rocks and removal of algae :lol: should all be happening about now. Those aquascapers with the really tidy cabinets have probably sent their entrys in already, the organised bunch that they are 😀 so how about you?

How have I been getting on, well not too bad, I have had a couple of problems early on. The first one was that I was using too much light over the tank with to many slow growers so that gave me some algae issues early on which took me a while to correct but I got around that after a few weeks and then the tank was clear. The second major problem I had was that I was sold some Eleocharis parvula which actually turned out to be Eleocharis acicularis, it was grown emersed, so it took a while to kop on that it wasnt the correct plant (several weeks) and thats a bit of a problem when you are trying to grow a whole foreground with it 😀 I organised some nice fish last week so was happy about that, other than that everything is going ok but as usual it will be a last minute photo shoot before my entry is ready but I should make the deadline :thumbup:
 
My 120cm is getting there but I'm dealing with algae (staghorn and BBA) and crypt melt right now as one of my CO2 cylinders ran out while I was away from home. 🙁

I only see the tank at weekends so maintenance issues are tricky! So it will be last minute.com from me, I think. I do like a challenge though... 😀

Has anyone actually submitted their entry yet?
