Thanx Bina. I still have 1 of the angels from then, the rest i sold. They are a stunning fish.

UPDATE:
*
Tanks are back on the stand, light is in place. Back glass lids will need to go back and be cut a bit shorter and i need a larger piece taken out the corner for the canister inlet and outlet tubes (canister is going at the end not under tha tank)

The background is on (vaselined), now light is on the tank and i can see better, a few spots need a bit more work. Will also be getting 2 more bits of backing to cover the sides of the tank, this will cover the canister pipework.

I'll grab pics later tonight.

Plant types are limited at present until i can source different ones. These came from my other 2 planted scapes (which now are looking somewhat bare LOL) Various anubias, crypt wendtii, java fern and a couple of small swords

Finally organised a more permanant power source for this tank. Heater was turned on yesterday, light is on for about 6 hours per day, internal filter running. Canister will hopefully be organised this weekend (need more media). I will be raiding my 2 cycled canisters to kickstart the new one, then topping them up with some new media.

No fish in house as yet, and wont be until the canister is up and running

New pics once the canister is on the tank

Thanx Bina

The angels new tank is ready and they will be moving out soon so i can begin stocking this tank with its permanant residents

Tank is doing really well. Lights are on for around 8-10 hours at the moment. Plants are looking great and not a sign of algae, very happy with that!
