    Hi folks,

    My name is Gareth and it's a pleasure to be here.

    I've always been in awe of aquascaped tanks have have decided to give it a go.

    Setup:
    Standard 2ft aquarium
    Aquasoil
    CO2
    2 x 20w LED lights

    Plants:
    Spiky Moss
    Flame Moss
    Java Moss
    Dwarf Baby Tears

    Livestock
    Neons
    Black Mollies

    I experienced one heck of a bacterial bloom when I started the tank, but that seems to have settled down nicely. I have a lot of bacteria growing on my driftwood but I'm leaving it to clear on its own.

    Moss and Baby Tears is really doing well, with the baby tears dropping new roots like mad and plenty of pearling going on.

    I look forward to taking you on my little journey and welcome all the advice you have to spare.

    That tank is already stunning, and is just going to be more so as the plants grow in.
