    If I did not have Spell Check my posts would have mistakes as well.

    My first computer to do a Spell Check I had to load 6 floppy disks first which took ages.

    Jason do the best you can no one is worrying as this is an international forum many have to translate as well.

    Jason when I am writing a large posting I prefer to write it in "Word" first that will check your spelling and English as well, then all you have to do is copy and past.

    You can add you photo links in as you go or add them before you copy and past in the Forum.

    Many thanks gents ;)
    im pleased I changed my anubias out for the smaller anubias I trimed some of the leaves and already getting new leaves shooting il add some more pics tomo guys after weekly maintenance ;)

    Greenfinger my fern prodject needed some attention still before i can sit bak and enjoy.

    I trimed the fern back as the new shoots were struggling, the older leaves browned out in places so iv give it a good prooning and its looking much better.
    Im getting good moss growth and the anubias I used from my tank in there is doing wel I removed the water feature as wasn't running how I designed it but not fussed about that.
    Will be adding some lucky bamboo next.

    Haven't a light over it yet so all growing from sunlight coming from the window il update pics once iv got my light over the ferns resevoir; )

    FYI: that's not Xmas moss (Vesicularia montagnei), that appears to be anchor moss (Taxiphyllum sp.) or Taiwan moss (Taxiphyllum alternans).

    I must agree your tank is coming along nicely keep up the light regular trimming it should thicken up a lot faster.
