The evolution of this tank is just phenomenal. And if I remember correctly, you seemed to be a bit anxious about making it work. Hope you're laughing at those thoughts now because it's great.

Glad you're letting a bit of algae grow on those rocks, as well. Makes the entire tank pop and looks natural.

This is by far my favourite tank I've seen on this website. It's definitely inspired me to keep at my own projects even through all the rough times. Just perfect :-)

Thanks for the compliments and insight! I was considering doing a compilation of FTS's from start to finish when I tear it down. I think it would be interesting to see the ups and downs of its progression.

You can look on ADANA-USA.com
But probably around $130 for the pipes and diffuser.

The End


The time has come.
Last night I took down my beloved 45-f. I thought I would finish up this journal with my final thoughts and a video that shows this scapes progression throughout its life.
First of all I'd like to say how helpful this journal has been to me and how much help I've gotten from other members here. Thanks to all of you for your time and generosity.
Looking back, I consider this the first aquascape I was fully committed too, as well as the first I think reached "completion" in some sense. As such, I am able to say I'm really proud of what I've done, and looking forward I can't wait to start fresh and use my gained knowledge and experience to create something even better.
In closing, I'd like to share this video I made which tracks the tank from start to end. Again, thanks you all who have followed along and offered your help, and I hope you'll check out my 60-F journal beginning this June!

This tank was great. Definitely looking forward to your next journal.

Hope you'll be starting this tank up again, as well.

I dream of the day where I can say "It's really wonderful to just not have problems in a tank- no algae, no dying fish or plants, no shoddy equipment giving way. It's worth it all."
congrats to you sir.

Thank you all.
I'd just like to say the next journal should be starting within the next two weeks.
