It'd be neat if the driftwood and stuff were on the opposite side, breaking view of the filter and co2 injection.

But the scape is neat, just too bunched. The triangle should be a little more spread out, with less sand showing.

Hi.. looking great tank so far. May I ask about fluval co2, do you push the chamber all the way under the water or you just leave a little top above the water? If anyone else about this please share your thoughts. Thanks.

I was thinking of that, and I was gonna try and do a dual sided aquascape when I re do the tank again

Going to have a background of rotala najeshan (I think I spelled the right?) hopefully, lots of willow moss and no more co2 for now. I know I've been rescaping this tank alot I'm just trying to find a scape thats enjoyable for me and I like it, but of course none of the dw pieces I have can provide that

I have the Fluval CO2 kit that came with the Fluval Flora. You put the entire chamber underwater. When you're filling the chamber and the chamber is full, a bubble will escape out the top. Hope that helps!

FTS as of 14/5/13. I know there is alot of sand exposed, hopefully will be covering that soon with either pearlweed or some moss screens :p As for Shurbert, he might be getting his very own 2.5 if i take down the DBP 3G. Thanks for tuning in!

I would say it isn't cycled if you're getting ammonia spikes /:

try some smaller leafed plants it will make your scape look a lot larger. You could also try something like dwarf sagg or marsilea minuta for your foreground.. both of those should work for you without CO2.
