Just a couple more pics of some other inhabitants in my tank.

The red cherry has been in for a while and he's very happy and all settled in.

I bought the cardinal shrimp today and he's been hiding the whole evening but he's just come out now and digging away on the mosses and seems to be happy.

One other thing, I recently binned quite a few plants such as a few Echinodorus' and a few other red plants. At first they looked really nice at the LFS but after I brought them home they were too big and seemed to take over my tank which threw everything off scale. Is there a way to give the plants away in the future? For example an unwanted stuff section?

Nice looking shrimp! You can give your plants as a RAOK - Random Act Of Kindness.

Thank you! My favourite is the little Tiger shrimp dude... Actually I love them all. I like that I bought a single one of a few species, that way I know who I'm looking at. They have names and all!

Thanks for the link. I shall definitely make use of it.

Thought I'd upload a few more updated pics. Did a bit of replanting on the right, with some Eleocharis. Can't wait for it all to grow in!

Thanks guys! Really appreciate your comments.

Just another shot from the front. The Eleocharis on the right hasn't been planted very nicely. But it was a but frustrating putting them in hence you can see a bit of their roots and such. My tweezers were too big so every time I took it out, it'd spring right back up. Once the plants have taken a hold in the substrate, I'll take a bit of the aqua soil and put it around the base to make it look a little more presentable.

As you know that there still is a bit more work to be done... I'm going to order a little bit more christmas moss soon and plant it around the edges of the rocks and the piece of driftwood. Reason is that I just want to soften the edges a little bit as it looks quite harsh at the moment.

Excuse my rendition but the photo below gives and example of what I am trying to achieve. Slightly left of the middle you'll see that I squiggled on a bit of moss to show where it'll go.

I really like how you've done your tank. Nice job! That driftwood is great!

Your tank looks amazing. You've inspired me to redo my 12g edge.

Aww, thank you. You won't believe how long I've been lurking on these forums just soaking up all the gorgeous tanks on here.

So where's photos of your edge? I was looking forward to seeing it. I've been looking at the official edge thread and now have caught up so it's a very exciting prospect seeing how a new edge comes along. I'll be looking out for it!

I've ordered some more moss to keep the process of completion going. It is going to go as described in the photo I put up previously.

Be sure to come and have a look at the end of the week!

Mine's needing a lot of work at this point so definitely not good enough to put up photos yet. Soon I hope. I'm looking forward to seeing the update to your tank.
