    Am I allowed to ban someone for having a gorgeous tank like that?  :)

    Only joking, that's really amazing. I love it. Well done.
    It's an obsession!   *fish2*

    Blue cortina you should have entered the planted tank competition.  Your tank is fab!  Maybe it is still open to you? Does it close on or before the 15th????? :)

    Thanks - Any ideas how I could hide the return for the external filter?

    Nice pic :)

    The filter return should get hidden by the plants you've got there.

    The tank looks great :) as Ian said the plants should grow up and thicken out to hide the return, you could always stick some moss to it to camouflage it, make sure you trim it to enable you to remove the end  :)

    Stunning Phantom picture too :)
