Thanks for the comments guys, its early days yet and its not as I want it.
I started it about 5 years ago to keep a goldfish, but I have passed the goldfish to someone else since then and decided to start a planted tank.
Upgraded the lights added an external filter and some DIY CO2, want to get presurized with PH Controller eventually (one thing at a time).

I will keep this post updated :)

Hi LondonDragon.

This is my first post on this forum!

I live in London as well (not many of us about on this forum), where did you get your HC from?

I live north of the river and tend to go to Crewes Hill in Middlesex (if you know it), Home Marine, Wildwoods etc. Never seen HC for sale there though.

I'm also trying to get hold of some Blyxa, which seems to be impossibe here!

Hi, I purchased my HC in a shop in Great Portland Street, Central London.
It was the only time I saw it there so I grabbed a couple of pots of it.
I was also after some Blyxia lately and also failed to find it in the shops.
You can buy it online, I have purchased stuff from this website before and they do a great service, they have both HC and Blyxia.

Hope this helps, good luck
