    Was time to rescape my 5 foot display...decided that I didn't want any fish in there...only about 400 crystal shrimp

    Well...some cleaner fish...so decided eventually on a crap load of crystals and 8 hillstreams

    Still has to grow in a lot...but getting there!!

    Salvaged some plants out of my previous scape (like the crinnum)...but a huge shout out to fellow mafia member @jakkalsbothma for supplying me with all the monte carlo and styrogene (and @skua for helping me plant the monte strand for strand)

    Also huge shout out to @shihr from betterweather for shipping my plants in time for the scape, Deon @Dorry Pets for the laceleaf & @Norio De Sousa for the additional hygro
