    This is it now without water.

    Currently the tank is very cloudy from moving substrate around.
    But i did put bottle on my canister filter inlet with some filter floss so will clear up much quicker and all that "dust" won't go and sit in my filter.

    With the filter on, it should take a day or so, and the cloudiness will clear.

    Quick update on my tank.
    Got some new lights fitted.
    Took out the high kelvin lights and replaced it with 3x 6500K and 1x 8000K.

    Please guys any comments (good or bad ) as I would just like to get the tank looking as good as possible.

    Nice FTS.

    Typically not a big fan of non-natural hard scape, but the head on the right looks good. Amazing how the extra plants make it all look more balanced. Now the wait starts. Give it a good few weeks before you re-scape again, trimming and replanting if fine, it really needs to grow in now.
