anto kindly asked me to remove this to the cometition section..I never thought about it in that regard but I guess it is..I'm just copying the earlier thread because I'm basically a lazy git....in essence there is a €100 voucher up for grabs for the best idea to fill a 4ft clearseal tank that is going in my livingroom.treat it like your dream tank at that size..what would you do with the space available?I'm looking for a detailed scape and species list....sean says I'm too lazy to think about it..I guess he's right..tired eyes..want something nice...too busy to even think about it.I've handed over the final decision to sean as a judge so I don't get to really be involved..I'll blog it and take pictures of the winning idea..over to you headcases!

Okay so finally getting around to posting my idea.I think you should do a planted, black water south american biotope.

The Substrate:
Flourite topped with Eco complete with a fine layer of sand on top.

The Hardscape:
Large branchy pieces of Redmoor placed as if they are roots from trees trailing into the water, and some smooth river pebbles.

The Plants:
Echinodorus osiris
Image
Alternanthera reineckii
Image
Echinodorus tenellus
Image
Vallisneria americana
Image
Flame Moss - Taxiphyllum sp. (attached to the wood)
Image
Heteranthera zosterifolia
Image

The Fish:
Pterophyllum altum x6
Image
apistogramma borellii x4
Image
corydoras adolfoi x16
Image
Red Eye Tetra x12
Image
phantom tetra x20
Image
whiptail plecostomus x3
Image

Extra info:
Most of the plants i listed are heavy root feeders hence the nutrient rich substrate but the addition of pressurized co2 would really set the tank off..

PS. a black backround
