    Hi and welcome back to the forum :hi:

    Your tank looks lovely well done! Every month the forum runs a tank of the month contest.

    It’s as simple as uploading a picture of your tank, and writing a brief description of tank maintenance, water parameters, stocking etc. Your above description is perfect, all you’d need to do is copy and paste this over.

    At the end of the contest members on the forum can vote which tank they think is best. The winner gets their own little neat tank of the month banner at the side of their avatar as you can see near my username.

    The next contest starts at the beginning of May.

    Slight change, added some more wood and removed most of the back plant as i didn't like it much - need to find something more 'bushy' as this plant just shot up to freedom. Here's a quick close up and next to the other tank -
    taken on my phone that has a black ink screen due to me smashing it :D so sorry for bad quality.

    I've just done a smaller tank scape for my mum, i'll try grab some pictures sometime.
