Really nice. Looking at your uncomplicated set-up that produces such a fine tank is inspirational. River Gravel!!

Thanks kindly all, this was the result of my first tank which evolved constantly after i learned what i was doing. The river rocks came from my garden as i was too cheap to buy proper substrate and thought it might look cool, and the pots are bondsai pots i bought to solve how i could keep live plants in here (once i went past my fake plastic plant stage...). I'm quite happy that it all turned out well!
