    Quick update. The plants are growing at a pace since the last trim.
    Took delivery of some new pump dispensers today, easier to use than the original TNC bottles...

    hese are the last pics of this scape. I was going to give it a stay of execution but either the tank has sprung a slow leak or I over filled it by accident.
    Either way, the upshot is that the baseboard has absorbed water and swelled, which has forced my hand somewhat.

    As a result the tank has been jacked up at the back by about 6mm, and I'm worried the uneven force will crack the tank and result in catastrophic failure.
    I've taken the hardscape out and lowered the water level, to hopefully relieve some tension till I can sort out a temp home for the critters and plants I want to keep for the next scape.

    Pics were taken in a hurry with my iPhone, so not the best...:meh:

    Sorry to see it come to that kind of end -- Looking forward to the next iteration!

    Thanks @aquanewb and @Christophe, I was hoping to take some proper shots for competition but that didn't happen. Next time maybe :rolleyes:
    I'll be taking my time setting up the next scapes, I've got an ADA 45P and a 60P to scape.

    You certainly made monosolenium look good in a scape :)
