    Hi Guys

    This is a bit sooner than I planned, but I did a tank yesterday. So I definitely don't want to call this an Aquascape, but at least it is something.

    I got a ton of plants yesterday form someone, with, I think, an awesome piece of wood. (Got wood, haha). Anyways... So this is the setup:
    120l Tank
    100w heater
    Hydor 450 Canister Filter
    Powersand M + Powersand S Super
    ADA Aquasoil

    So the setup is about 15 hours old, with the first 90% WC imminent.

    Some plants came loose, so I will be 'planting' them again with the WC. The tank is 50cm deep, so it is not an option doing it while full.

    Everything came from a low tech tank, and would like to keep it that way. I don't have planting tweezers yet, so planting is very much a hassle, hence the 'loose' plants. Fondue fork was a fair companion though.

    Any recommendations would be appreciated. I am ok with changing things should that be necessary.

    Anyways, let's try uploading a pic, and yes, that is a Pooh looking at you.

    Thanks guys:occasion18:

    Yip, had to improvise due to much backlight for the photo.

    If you like, I can bring you the tank and you can do the next bit :thumb:...

    So after the 90% WC, out came some coney shaped snails. After some research, they are MTS or MLS, i think.

    Ok, so how to get rid of them...
    @shihr - you had the best idea with the CO2, but I don't have a CO2 setup, but I do have a Soda-stream!

    The CO2 seemed to have done the job, but what it also done, was to put 100's of little bubbles on the freshly planted plant, and eventually, uproot them. You live and learn...

    So tonight, i will be planting, again.
