Thanks again The tank is 27 litres so roughly 7 gallons; the substrate I use is called JBL Manado, it's a type of fired clay that has a high gas exchange rate apparently... it also apparently absorbs nutrients from the water and stores it to be fed directly to plant roots, whether that's true or not I don't know but the plants absolutely love it and the colour is wonderful.

Thank you Abby The fertilizers are clearly doing their job as the java ferns have started pearling! Yay!

Wow! I'm sure Kaze is very happy. That looks amazing! A couple of questions; what fertilizer are you using, and where did you find the small driftwood? I can only find large pieces.

I just got finished planting Bradbury's tank and my hope is that it'll look like yours.

Thank you for the compliment and the fertilizer I'm using is called Ferropol 24 by a company known as JBL. It's a daily fert but you simply add a single drop per 50 litres (my tank is 27 litres so the drop does more than enough), the tiny bottle lasts for 10,000 litres and only costs £5.29 so it's great value and it has all essential nutrients in it including iron. The driftwood was from a local aquatics store and came with plants already attached, they have a sale on for two small pieces for £15, great deal! The driftwood without the plants would usually cost about that.
