    Oh, you may have gotten lost in my recent cull of invites. I couldn't access my list so had to go through the Origin client and delete them all, which solved all my stability problems. Try again and I'll add you back. :-)

    Dude that's ace! Yeah I'll get some pix in the morning, just put the co2 and lights out for 8 hours, so need to wait, don't want to change things to much,

    Get java moss man, it's great... In or out of water, and it sculpts to anything fast, I have what looks like a water hole with a glass front and fern browning ht of it.. The barbs love it

    I've kept fish for a couple of years now.

    I've got a 180l in living room with Mollies, neons, yoyo loaches, corydora cats, ottos, shrimp with a natural cork backdrop sand substrate, plenty of plants and moss.

    I've also got a 40l in living room with a male betta (who has gone blind) and white cloud mountain minnows and another assortment of live plants, a 240l in kitchen with more loaches and a few Mollies.

    I've also got a 240l, 2 40l and an 80l empty at minute. I fancy an Oscar in the 240l, but can't find space to set it up. I also fancy trying breeding bettas or splash tetra (incredible to watch these breeding), but kinda got my handful after breeding Mollies.

    Just to add, I tried my hand at aquascape once, but after using a rich substrate, plant feeds and co2, I struggled to keep up with keeping it tame enough for my liking. After a few months of different dosage levels I gave it up. I also couldn't get the water quality good enough to keep fish in it as well.

    I might have another go one day.

    I might have to try the CO2, never had luck with plants. Have two tanks, 55 gallon and 30 gallon. No one fish type, small tank has some yo yo loach, bolivian rams, bristlenose and an albino pleco, big tank has quite a variety. Looking forward to seeing your pics, sounds amazing.

    You need to get the co2 just right.. If your gonna do it go with DIY 2 litre coke bottle for over 100 litre tank or 1 litre bottle for under 100 litre tank...
    Get a co2 meter as well or at least a ph level tester, if you ph starts to drop below 6 get the co2 out of the tank, I killed a few fish by injecting a crazy amount.

    I use standard garden compost under a thin layer of aquarium gravel and sand mix (sand came from toys r us) no added fertiliser to the water... Grows like it would in the wild, amazing.....

    Cork background hay? Sounds interesting...
