    I set up this tank today the whole freeking day :BangHead: lots of moss tying was done. Hope you like. Will take some time to grow in but sure it will be worth rhe wait. The black rock on the right will be removed ones the new piece of spider wood stays down. I think I need some more ferns at the back right. [​IMG] will see how it develops as time go by. :thumbsup:

    Just a little update on this tank. Had some problems in this tank from the get go. First there were a diatom attack but that has disappeared luckily. Then came the bbm and hair algae attack. But busy with that fightback and looking to win the battle in the end. :evil6: Like it says work in progress or maybe I should have said battle in progress :evil6:

    Looking great Pierre :thumbsup: I can't imagine the amount of flow with that Sun sun pump, as it looks the same size as I have in 760L.. :scratch:

    Thanks alot guys :thumbsup:
    @ Richard the idee is to have the right kinda inverted to the left. Left side alot of moss on the wood and right side not so much. There are a couple of rocks underneath the bare branch fully covered in moss. Will see when this moss starts to grow out more and huggs the branch from underneath how it looks. But thanks note taken and I do need more plants on the bulky part of the bare wood nect to the anubia. Like stated work in progress :laughing7: and with only slow growers it will take some time to come to its own.

    Yeah I was having debris buildup on the moss. dead spots and so on. Hair algae and bbm. So got the smallest one I could find at 3000L/h and it sorted the debris out in no time and algae subsiding slowly with the extra flow and H2O2 treatment. Plants also looking much better now after taking a huge knock.
