That didn't take you long.
I'm looking forward to seeing what it looks like.  :)

Ive replicated George's 65cm NA tank like I said previously (photo attached again below)... we've actually been out for the day so can't wait to get back shortly and see what it looks like!  The lights were turned off to calm the fish down after the ordeal and the tank water was quite cloudy right up until a rapid water change before we jumped in the car... so it will be nice to see it myself!

I added more crypt balansae and some crypt beckettii. Bit of a tidy and job done...  :))

Somebody got a bit fat after their tea...

@fcmf The tank has a black background but does look blue in the photos where the light is reflecting at the top... odd really I assume the led light must have a blue component to it else I'm not sure why it looks blue  ???

Dwarf puffers always look funny with the post-feed tubby tummy.  ;D

Looks great, and those dwarf puffers are soooooooo adorable.  (Argh - I'm getting fish broody again...)

6 of my 7 neon green rasboras get that, especially after a feed of brineshrimp or bloodworm. ;D

Hi Matt,

I admire your aquascaping skills - did they come naturally or did you take a course in aquascaping? Choosing a bunch of plants that will grow well together is also to your credit. You also have some lovely fish - the blue Gobies are one of my wife's favourites and no-one can resist puffers! I keep Panda Garras, which are similar to Gobies.

BTW, I think I spotted you on the UKAPS forum very recently.

Thanks all, very kind comments   ;D  :cheers:

@jaypeecee yes I'm on UKAPS too. Between these 2 forums I am kept quite busy!

I learnt most of what I know from YouTube, podcasts, the internet... it certainly isn't something that has come naturally!! But I have always enjoyed planted tanks from the get go... I didn't start as a fishkeeper and transition to aquascaping as such.

If you are interested, take a look at my website: www.scapeeasy.co.uk

Finally happy enough with the look of this tank to submit a photo to the Maidenhead Aquatics gallery competition... any support you would be able to offer me would be much appreciated :)

https://fishkeeper.co.uk/gallery/

I'm getting quite addicted to this competition lol... the level of competition on there gets better and better month on month! Its great to see more people getting into aquascaping... make my job harder though!!!
