AdamF Hi all ....

I was worried my tank may start cycling again, and take out some casualties as well.

It been one week, fish and shrimp seem healthy. May upload a pic as well. So I'm glad it hasn't been a disaster so far.

I used a different soil to top it all up, I gather all the nutrients of the Aquasoil are still available to all the plants. All be it 6" deeper in some areas.

AdamF Foreground - UG
Second Tier - Staurogyne Tropica
Top tier - Blyxia
Front RHS - Ludwigia, I think.

I do want to add a little more colour but no sure what to use at this stage. Looking for something squat, to replace the ludwigia (as mentioned I think that's what it is). Although maybe I will remove that area all together as I think it hides the elevation a little too much.

AdamF Ok - decided it was time for a change.... 6 hours to strip and re-do. Its always double what I expected...

Any suggestions welcome :-(

You could always try planting some more hardy plants. I found that water wisteria works well. It gives a bushy look to the tank and grows like crazy so if your mollies nibble on a leaf or two you won't have to worry as it always has some other shoots growing anyway.
Good luck

daphilster08 Wow amazing! This is why UG is my favorite ground cover plant. Oh, and hide the heater behind the plants a little :P

synaethetic The UG in the front looks like it goes down all the way to the glass bottom, is there no soil there?

Such a lush tank, very unique scape and dimensions.

AdamF Hey marionman - how's your shrimp going? Any eggs I'm the females as yet?

Oh and do you have a TJ, as I couldn't find one?
