Hi all,

Wow! :D Very very nice looking. Looks perfect.

Great job! Looks great. For short plants for the foreground, I really like narrow leaf chain sword. It will build runners to so it will eventually fill in your front quite nicely. Word of advice. You only need 1 pot that you can divide into a few plants. They grow runners quickly

Wow, very nice! What are you going to stock with? Some lucky fish are going to be very happy in their new home. :)

Thanks for the replies all.As it has only just finished cycling i have put 3 zebra danios in,they have been in a week and water conditions seem fine,i was going to leave it 2 weeks before adding more fish but one of the larger danios seems to bully the 2 smaller ones so I may add 2 or 3 more this weekend to see if this calms him down.
As for other fish,i'll leave it a couple or weeks or so before i add more,so i dont overload the bio-load.Im undecided on what species/quantities yet as im still looking at different fish stockings using the tank calculator to see the various options.

that's really nice.
well done.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
