    Seeing all the nice threads on new tank builds and revamps I decided to start a few threads on my tanks :D

    First up is my 2 foot & 3 foot planted experimental tanks. On one stand - so one thread for now!

    Took these pictures on Sunday 01 July 2018 after I moved them to a new position.

    Will add more info on whats in them a little later...

    Nice use of inert substrate, it so can be done if you get the plants right.

    Thanks @f-fish - for info the bottom 2 foots 2x big plants are plastic :confused: the rest (3x cards java moss, 3x small crypts & 1x baby common sword) is live.

    The top 3 foot all is live plants - mostly crypts, some java fern on the drift wood & some vallies on the right side.

    Its been going through a slow process of leaves slowly dying off and new leaves growing in since I added them.

    Definitely enjoying the experience. Want to try some fancy substrate on my 4 foot...

    Both tanks look stunning @AmithS

    The java on the top tank is really looking nice

    Thanks @MariaS very different experience from only having one Arowana tank. When the time is right will start a new big tank project.

    Been a while since I posted. Have been busy with work.

    Found these little ones while doing a water change. They look awesome in real, tried to capture them on photo... They about 2 - 3mm each actual size...
