    Changing coloured light.

    Aquascape:
    3 bits of Dragon Stone(I spent hours cleaning out the clay)shaped into a mountain with gaps.

    Annoyingly, a blue background but a lot of Amazon Sword and another long plant covers most of it.
    Bar Airstone at the back of the tank

    1x Adonis Pleco
    3x Dwarf Gourami

    Maintenance:
    Water checks monthly
    50% water change every 2 weeks
    (Not necessary to do it weekly as my filter cycles the tank 10 times an hour and is super clear)

    Overall Price:
    ~Roughly~ £700

    tank2.jpg Here is my recently (last week) rescaped tank, removed the tacky plastic decorations and gravel, and dove into my first planted tank!

    Its a 40L "lovefish" aquarium, no modifications.
    I used 1 large piece of wood and mixed sizes of dragon stone.
    The soil i used was Tropica Soil, plants i planted were: Eleocharis acicularis 'Mini', Eleocharis acicularis, Hygrophila 'Siamensis 53B' and Hottonia palustris.
    Dosing/fertilisers: Tropica premium nutrition, seachem flourish
    Maintenance 20% change every 5 days, waiting on a algae scraper to come in the post tomorrow! but will be cleaned as needed.

    It probably wont win, not expecting it to, but as a first scape and attempt at a planted tank im pretty happy with it (not artistic at all haha) just waiting on the dwarf hairgrass to carpet round the dragon stone xD

    It's been known, but most people have bouts of tanks looking good and bouts of....not, and not everyone goes for aquascapes, some are into fairly bare tanks with big fish, depends what you're into. Plus they'll worry that, if they win, people might complain.
