    Fascinating to see the transformations step by step!

    You definitely have green fingers --- planting looks awesome, sooo green That refers to me btw!

    I've read loads of advice on how to encourage good plant growth but I'm still struggling. Would love to hear about your regime for plant care!

    Thanks peps.

    Atargatis i had proplems growing in my old tank in gravel, only had  20% survive mainly vallis.
    i covered the base of new tank were i was planning on planting in tetra plant completesubstrate, with 3 inch of sand on top. i think this is why they took so well, and abit of luck.
    i have a warm white and a daylight tube on for 14 hours aday max.
    i fill the co2 defusser up everyday and use and plantamin once a month.
    i let it grow for 3 months before trimming and thinning out.

    all plants were cuttings of ebay £10 worth.

    Tank is looking great buddy,
    Does it take much maintenance?allways fancied a heavily planted tank but unsure if its any harder to keep things clean?
    Some of my plants tend to break up and i end up having them floating everywhere, dont know if they might just be poor plants??

    It was a nightmare at first as the cae would uproot them but as soon as they rooted they grew quickly.
    i do need to knock debris of the leafs every week and i move the vallis on the surface daily as the food gets trapped in it.
    hardest thing is cleanning the sand bettween the plants.
    its not much more work.

    are yours proper aquatic plants?
    or if there stem ones they have not been bent?
    i bought lots from my lfs but they died.

    Outstanding, that has to be one of the nicest planted tanks I've seen. You've done a great job on it.

     *applause* stunning tank. Shows what you can do without spending a fortune on plants and having patience.

    Thanks for putting the pics on.  *buba*

    Thanks for your nice comments.

    ive had to thin it out some more as it was to dense and the fish were not really using the full tank, think they could not get through it lol.
    they are much more active and swimming alot more.
    12 new tiny neons added today and some blacks on order.

    any suggestions for other fish i can add ?
    no small bottom feeders tho as my clumbsy cae will land on them.
    cheers.
