Hi all,

I'm from Sydney Australia, and been in the hobby just over a year. I've just started my second hi-tech 125l nature tank (pictured below about at 1 week) that I am planning to start a journal for on here.

Look forward to learning heaps from you guys, and hopefully helping others from my experiences as well.

Welcome!
Couple things;
I recommend you move the co2 diffuser down so it has more time to get to the plants, and go other places with the current rather than to the surface immediately.
Like what you where going for to, like a rivers edge kind of? the stone standing up behind the branches is very oblong and distracting, would look 50 percent better without it imo.

Thanks, I had the same thought about the CO2, but just need to go buy some longer tubing first. The rock on the beaches is just temporary to weigh the wood down. I forgot to do that in the first place (rookie mistake I know) and had to replant everything twice when the wood started to float while filling the tank. Hopefully I'll be able to take it away in a week or so. That area around the branches I want to make quite bushy, like a rocky beach leading up to a jungle.

Thanks for your input, when I get the journal up I'd appreciate any advice you can give.

Hello Beni, let me also say that your tank looks like a good start and Welcome to the community here.

In a few weeks that tank will be full of plants. Keep us updated, maybe start a journal.
