    here is my heavily influenced by TA Nature aquarium. It is at the mid life point. Some of the mosses look a little scraggy at the moment, and the photo was basically a quick snap shot with zero effort put in.

    I promise to remove all the hardware, debris etc for the final pic.:rolleyes:

    Hi Kevinicus, here are the specs:

    Tank specs:
    Hardware;
    2 x Tetratec 1200s with added Zeolite and Purigen
    300W Hydor inline heater
    Pressurised CO2 via an Aquamas reactor
    3 x 38W reflected T8 lights in an Arcadia luminaire
    120cm x 45cm x 45cm float glass tank. I wanted opti white, but Ray at Aquariums Ltd kindly offered me this one at an unbeatable price

    Hardscape;
    Wood picked up off the fields of N. Wales and an Almond grove in Spain. The rocks/stones are my usual N. Wales quarry source, but they should disappear under the mosses. The coarse sand is from TGM.

    Ferts;
    ADA Aqua Soil Amazonia where there are plants
    Macros are EI using AE powders
    Micros are Flourish from a bottle Johnny the wop gave me
    CO2 as high as is comfortable for the fish

    Flora;
    Cryptocoryne undulata (a beautiful plant)
    Cryptocoryne parva
    Bolbitis heudelotii
    Anubias barteri var. nana
    Anubias barteri `coffefolia`
    Staurogyne sp
    Hygrophyla corymbosa `compact`
    Rotala sp `green`
    Rotala sp `nanjenshan`
    Leptodyctium riparium
    Taxiphyllum barbieri

    Here is a pic of the right hand side.
