    Thanks very much Dewald. We have all started at pretty much the same time and I think we all deserve a round of applause. Our tanks are really starting to show what's possible in our hobby...

    My 3 foot will be ready, hoping to make 1 or 2 small changes to it. Not a 1st prise winner, but I`ll give it a shot!

    Is Richard and Raymond out of the running as the owners of the site? I agree on your prediction. Wait till you see Trevor's new tank.

    No dude. The Mountains of Mulu has been dismantled and rescaped...

    HennieRoux - Nice man. Hopefully that carpet closes up. Could maybe do with a little more height in the tank?

    Still battling with algae on my glass, but no other algae, think I might be overdosing ferts slightly. Wish the moss can take off quicker. Need to clean the rocks as well. The tank is only about 3 months running.

    @Hawk yes I have trimmed the HC very short so when I do my final trim it will be higher, but I might look @ adding some hills @ the top for some hight

    There might be hope for my 135l then. That's if my ancistrus stops removing the moss from the wood!

    Excess ferts dont cause algae, your lights might be to strong for your tank.(People are crazy because they always assume that algal blooms are triggered by nutrients, yet, nothing can be further that the truth. It's normally because the plants are starving due to not enough nutrition that the plants suffer and algae attack.) This is from

    What lights you got in your 3 footer?

    IMO:smile1: When taking your final entre pictures, lower your water level and take a picture from a low angle.
