    Then I was in biotope phase.

    After that, I got hooked up...added one more T8 lamp and diy CO2.

    Really nice development. I like your 2010 scape the most! If you have used smaller fish, instead of tetras, I would think that the tank is much more larger, than in real life. ;) Anyway great so far, keep up!

    thanks for sharing. this is a great example of the progression of a planted tank hobbyist to aquascaper. Well done! Your hard work has paid off.

    Newbies take note! :proud:

    You have improved with every scape.

    Thanx everybody...I am pleased that progress is visible with every scape.

    In last one I've used DIY substrate and despite a fact that plant grew like crazy, I had for the first time BBA on hardscape. I think that I won't use that any more. Vulcanit is tested recipe. ;)


    Pozdrav Val. :tea:

    lovely scape, but wood pointing to the top is always distracting, however I see your photography skills have improved also, so keep up the good work :proud:

    Beautiful tanks! Really shows how much better and better your scapes have gotten all the way from the start.

    I was just wondering though, what type of substrate do you use?

    Thanx everybody...



    Otherwise I use vulcanite with water column dosing...for the last scape I've used DIY substrate: mix of clay, potting soil (consists of peat), aqualit and over that gravel. Plants grew like crazy, but I had some BBA on hardscape for the first time, so I won't use that mix any more.

    I feel like if the wood was higher up in the tank and there was a much greater slope of the substrate this tank could easily jump from great to masterpiece.
