Very nice Borderboy!

Love the scaping, I need some inspiration in that department.... it never quite ends up the way I had thought....

Silver tips look really effective against the dark background!

saracen: thanks for the comments re the scaping :) i got the inspiration for blacking out the back of the tank from the book Nature Aquarium World by Takashi Amano. I love the set ups in there, they're amazing. i knew i'd never get anything as good but i'm happy with what i achieved.

sharkdude: i don't know if you've tried but tropicalfishfinder is a website i find very useful for discovering new LFS and hard to find fish. hope it helps!

Those are excellent pics! Amano is an aquascaping legend and has produced some excellent tanks :D The tank looks lovely :) I'm also a fan of dark backgrounds, but mine usually end up being green lol

Wow - I like the use of the silks you chose - it's very effective - less maintenance too I guess!

Do you have issues with the nitrate though?

no nitrate troubles at the mo, touch wood, (there is some live java fern in there amogst the silks) but i'm keeping an eye on it. biggest problem at the mo is persistant white spot. its not much but it just won't go! i'm using bog standard treatment at the right dose but it just seems to be keeping it at a low level. :(

Which treatment are you using? I found the best one to blitz whites spot was King British WS3. Blasts it right out of the water.

i'm using interpet anti whitespot plus (no idea why its plus! :blink: ). think i might just have to persevere. the only prob is i was planning on introducing some new fish but now the white spot is back i'm not so sure.
