    Show us your aquarium - re-visit :)

    Mine's been moving on slowly since the last re-scape, so far so good.

    2 watts per gallon (15 UK gallon tank)
    Full estimative index dosing (nitrate/pottassium/phosphate and trace)
    Pressurised CO2 injection
    External TetraTec EX600 filter with glass inlet/outlet pipework
    External Hydor inline heater
    Florabase substrate
    Rotala sp. green
    Cryptocoryne Wendtii
    Staurogyne sp.

    ~25 vietnamese cardinals
    2 otocinclus
    1 cherry shrimp (all lonely for now)

    This is how our one is now after asking loads of questions on here about 6 months ago.

    Plants are doing well

    I'd love a bigger tank but no room or time for now!

    Put CO2 in it for a day but it didnt circulate properly so its turned back off till I get a pump to circulate it properly.

    Plants are doing ok without it so might sell it on.

    Adding CO2 is one of those things that needs other stuff done too - CO2 without the right fertilisation is not a good thing, if they are fine now then leave it

    Check out www.ukaps.org too, superb place

    That looks cool. I like the sub-straight look.

    This is ours now (Bad picture)
