The texture on that rock is priceless... let me know when you don't want it so i can stick it in my tank ok? Do you happen to know what it's called and where you got it from?

i found it burried deep under the pile of rocks at the gardening shop. the shop owner just called it mountain yellow rock and unfortunately there were no other matching ones with that.

Very nice.
Just a quick question, are you injecting co2 in the 64l? I spy a drop checker but no diffuser.

You - my friend - are NOT stuck with the same themes or styles. Your tanks are interesting and neat to look at. Thank you for sharing...

In your 70L tank, how did you manage to keep the goldfish from not nibbling on the plants?

i uses a vortex reactor and DIY CO2 on that one. i took it out before taking photo.

and then after that i bought this really nice max mix reactor, can be plugged at canister filter's output so it doesn't take up space inside the tank.

i really tried to be different for each tank / every rescape. tryin new stuff and i guess boredom was another factor.

you have to choose plants with harder leaves. as you can see what i had there :
anubias, java fern, vallisneria, amazon sword, bacopa, tenellus. had problems with those goldfish tearing the lily's leaves and digging tenellus. others were fine.

Thanks for posting your tanks. I liked the wood in the 160 liter. Loved the way the Anubias grew in.
