Just a small update.
It's taken soooo much longer than I had expected it to. I have sort of changed my mind from doing a full on aquascape and have decided to do something a bit more unique. I got my hands on a beautiful piece of wood last week and I've placed in the tank. I wanted one which poked out the top of the water. I've also gone for play sand really just to experiment in view of putting it some of my other tanks instead of gravel.
It's only a very small update but I have now planted all the plants so I will post another picture tommorow once the water has cleared itself. I also have some rocks in there now as well.
