    To my shock the Oscar decided it would be funny if he started spitting mouths filled with sand into both the intakes of my HOB filters so I had to put sponges on them:

    Also doing the exact same thing for the second HOB, already got the same media setup, lights and plants just need to find a place that sells Lucky Bamboo:

    Not the first thing I said when my filters started to sound like a grinder...

    Didnt the fish in Finding Nemo do the same thing to escape? Blocked the filter so the tank goes green so the dentist removed them to clean and they made a break for it. Doubt the oscar would fit down the drain though

    Had to modify my DIY perspex lid since I hooked up the second HOB filter:

    Also had my little boy for almost 6 months now and he is growing up to be a chunky little boy:

    So took a walk in the veld the other day and come across some inspiration. More specific some wood and rocks, so after some cleaning and moving it around inside the tank I came up with a pretty decent layout which didn't cost me a cent.

    Also removed the Seachem Purigen I rather like the stained water. If anyone knows where I can get some giant Anubia please let me know. Also, he decided to dig himself a hole at his favorite spot where is spends most of his time.

    i think it looks great @CharlZA

    And he has now picked his spot!

    I also think one or two anubias would look nice on that wood
    Maybe let the tank settle now for a week or two and then give it a try

    Tracked down some Jumbo Anubia should go nicely with the large piece of wood:
