    @seb'sfish
    Thanks, yeah I've been thinking of upping the peppered cory numbers to 6 to match the sterbai cories. I might also get a few more cherry barbs as out of the 18, only 6 are female. Ideally I'd get another 4 or 5 females.

    @steeler1
    Thank you, yes I entered in the August competition and won it! I was delighted

    I'd just joined and was finding by way around the forum so I did not see that. Belated congratulations.

    I went to "Aquatics Live!" today in London and came home with 8 new plants. I got:
    2 x Posgostemon helferi
    2 x Alternanthera rosaefolia mini
    2 x Lobelia cardinalis dwarf
    2 x unknown (possibly a Bacopa of some sort)

    I'm hoping the cories don't uproot it all now...they have a habit of doing that to the more delicate things in the tank.

    Here's the Posgostemon helferi. I don't expect this to do particularly well as it's a medium light demanding plant (and my lights are poor), but we'll see.


    Here's the Lobelia cardinalis dwarf - it looks quite a nice stem plant.


    And a little forest of Alternanthera rosaefolia mini, mixed in with some sickly Alternanthera reinecki pink (threw out the older stems).


    And this is the one that didn't have a label. I think it's a bacopa of some sort but perhaps the experts here can confirm?

    I did a bit of a minor rescape on the tank. The "tree" was annoying me as it's in the way, I never intended it for this tank, so I took it apart and fixed the anubias to the main wood where nothing was really growing. I pulled out some old Alternanthera and planted all the new stuff.

    Here's the full tank shot.


    The left view.


    The right view - with the anubias stuffed in between the tangled roots of the wood.


    I'm pretty happy with it. I might just get a few more vals for the back.

    Your tank just continues to become more attractive all the time, keep up the good work.

    Cheers!

    It's a really useful record of what I've done with it. I've still plans to do more. I keep thinking, "that's it now", but it only lasts 5 minutes before I get another idea!
