|Saxtonhill||Just saw that the fabulous tank is no more. It was truly an inspiration. Tom, hope you start another one back up when you can!|

|The Gipper||Thanks for an entertaining thread Tom, just read it front to back. One last question, in your final iteration of the tank what was the short carpet plant covering most of the perimeter surrounding the crypts|

Thanks very much for the kind comments guys.
As you can see I'm not monitoring this thread closely any more, but I have fixed the original photos which had gone missing in my main thread over on UKAPS if anyone wishes to see them - http://www.ukaps.org/forum/threads/t...the-end.14521/
I'm not really active on TPT these days so anyone interested in the new tank will also need to check out the UKAPS thread for that journal - http://www.ukaps.org/forum/threads/t...co-pozo.33301/
All the best, Tom

|AquaAurora||I'm sad to see the old aquarium gone but look forward to more updates (and more close up photos) of the new tank. Can you list riparium and aquatic plants for the new setup?|

where is the art ?
Your photo's of your tanks journey made me smile
Took me back to my art school days when we were debating "what is art "
To conclude we decided that the art was the process and that the photo's were a record of that process. So in fact neither the photo or the tank itself is the the art, but the journey itself is ART Well done . Your work is an inspiration. Thankyou for the posts.

Sorry chaps, the Bucket is no more. Had a protracted house move earlier this year and gave everything away.
This was it on it's last morning -
And a few hours later -
I have a new tank up and running now in the new place (4x1x4'), kindly donated by a friend on the UKAPS forum.

|billbug68||Completely understandable after several years. I get sick of my tanks after 6 months...|

|BigTom||Haha thanks again. The ferns were 90% java fern 'trident'. There's still some around the sides and back. It's a great plant, probably my favourite but it's been the dominant plant in the tank for several years so I fancied a change.|

Tom's Bucket O' Mud (semi self-sustaining aquarium)
Absolutely stunning, man. I was gonna say, everything shows such great color, no obvious deficiencies, no crazy algae... Again, great work.
One more question... The ferns you just removed, was all of that just narrow leaf java fern? I thought it had a great effect against the few crypts you already had in the tank. And the microsword mixed with the hairgrass! Gah, so good! I can't get over it! Haha
