Don't hold your breath waiting for updates on this thread but today I've started working on a new 'different' type of tank build.

Trying to source the stuff I need is proving annoying. I honestly thought I'd be able to order everything next day on Amazon but it's not to be.

Anyway, I thought some of you might want to follow this thread over the next few weeks.

I need to sort the hole in the bottom ofthe tank first and then get that culture going so I can feed its inhabitants!!!


It'll be interesting to see this develop   :)

I hope you're patient.  ;D

I sorted the heating and UVA lighting yesterday. And picked up the substrate that I'll mix and seed soon.

I have black vinyl, black silicone and expanding foam arriving today. But the pond paint will take a week to arrive.

I also have some specialist plants on order but need to go looking for suitable hardscape later on.

It's annoying just how far behind the UK hobby is compared to the US where they have so many more suitable products available to them too. I can plump the bulkhead and drainage bits in today though. :)
