The photos look good.
The cost breakdown is interesting, glad that you paid for it though ;)

Look after your fish and the water, do regular water changes & maintenance, do your research and the hobby will be rewarding.

    Yes definitely paid for the stuff! We took too many plants on the basis that some would go back, but in fact used them all!

    I thought the costs would be interesting as it's not something they talk about in the aquascaping videos.

    I will have a look at his channel when I get a chance.

    The manzanita wood is definitely a great shape - it really makes the scape!

    Yeah i have subscribed, thought i did it ages ago, apparently not (although that mightve been on our other email). And my OH quite often pops up the odd GF vid on facebook when she sees something she thinks i’ll like ;)

     thumbsup

    Cool. I just like the tanks he sets up and a very straight forward way of explaining what he is doing.

    Check out his low tech no co2 tank video if you haven't seen it already. Saw it in real life the other day. Really really nice!

    Ps. AG will start opening on Saturdays in a couple of weeks time so might be handy for you.

    A quick post as I am selling my 6 foot tank, lights and UV. All separate sales.

    Congo tetras for free to a good home.

    Java ferns for postage plus a small donation to the running of siege castle.

    Have posted in the for sale section.

    Give me a shout if interested. Tank cost £1,000 new. Happy with £350 from TFF members so quite a bargain to the right person.

    Cheers

    Video of of my tanks uptodate. I hope you like the vid.

    Forgive the state of them as they had no maintenance for 2 weeks (3 weeks for 900).

    May redo my 900 as never been happy with it.

    George takes he’s camera everywhere he goes, sorry........!

    Wow! Wow! and Wow!
    I was wondering how your tank was doing but you now have three aquascaped tanks.
    All three are gorgeous, I'm so jealous mate.  *grin*
