    Thanks very much @GarethVd. I will update again real soon when I have managed to trim the right side of the tank. It's really coming together nicely

    Here is a closeup of the left side where the Hydrocotyle has grown in amongst the other plants. I'm trying to work on the fine detail in the foreground...

    Tank looked like this this morning:

    All the Ludwigia Peruensis uprooted in the back right during a recent bout of maintenance so I need to replant but otherwise I'm pretty pleased with how it's looking

    Wow, still a very impressive jungle tank. Is the plants in the far left at the front Blyxa japonica?

    @Good Times - Thanks. Yes the plant is Blyxa Japonica. I'm currently looking for Blyxa Aubertii...

    Cool, never even heard of it before, did a google and looks like they grow a bit taller. Could make a nice background curtain in a nano.

    My tank has been neglected whilst I was on holiday. I have started replanting, trimming etc again. The tank looks like this (crappy cell pics!)

    @Bazil - Hey hey dude. Long time no see. The dark side keeping you busy? Thanks for the compliment dude. As I said, it's a work in progress as and when I can get a bit of time...

    Hey Marc.

    Haven't even tasted salt water yet.. :wacko:

    Still lots to do, but I'll get there eventually. Should start my tank within the next month or so. :tongue:

    Thanks Danelle. The Angels are trying to breed like mad! I had free swimming fry last week, they dissapeared and now I have eggs again. It makes working in the tank quite difficult as they can get aggro...

    Very good that they are still happy. I gave my last Angels away yesterday. The one time I had wrigglers and tried to remove them, the parents actually bit me. I'd stiil want some stems, if I get close to you some day. Been there a few days ago but didn't realize that's where we were going. You live relatively close to access park?

    Hey man. I've been nipped once by them when I was working in the tank and not paying attention. Thankfully I wear gloves so I got more of a fright than anything else.

    I actually live closer to Sams (about a minute or two away) so give me a shout when you are coming my way and we can sort you out.
