Hi all,

I have just purchased a 2nd hand 150ltr build which im going to try my hand at aqua scaping with (low tech.)

It came with a heap of Anubis which will be good (have currently move it to my main tank which is a 190ltr)

Its got a Ehiem filter which is a bit small for it so i have ordered a Aquis 1000 for it.

The phone is of my main tank with all the Anubis from the new tank currently in it. I'm going to split it up and keep some of it in here as i like the way it looks. (which needs some work but im going to practice on the smaller one first.)

PS Note to self - Since adding the Ramshorn snails they have taken care of the little bit of algae i had. Lights are currently on low for 11 hours and not getting any green algae on the glass.

Found a old picture of the original tank, the wife thought it would be nice to do with our daughter hence the fake plants and jelly fish that she chose from the shop. I was still trying to weigh down the driftwood i had bought.
Daughters interest faded (she is only 2.5yrs old) so i took over and am slowly turning it into a more natural look like in the first post.

The other photo is of the new tank. The peice of driftwood at the front is still being weighed down as it decided to start floating on me. I'll finish putting the plants in after it has become waterlogged and put back into the correct location. The Fake stones came with the tank and i kinda like the look of them so will keep them for now. The front peice of driftwood will arch over and touch the stones to create an arch once it has become waterlogged.

I've never tried a sand bottom before so am curious to see how it goes. Once i've finished the scaping i'll transfer over some of the bio noodles from the established tank into the new one so i can do instant fish. Looking at some form of cory, bronze or pygmie maybe, a school of 6-8 and a school of Lambchop or chilli rasboras (15 since the local shop sells them in lots of 5.)
Possible a mated pair of honey gouramis to top it off.
