    I left the tank too settle after buying it from Leosha for about a month now.
    I thought it is time to give the fish a new land-scape.

    I use Tufa rock as a base since it has lots of holes allowing for flow.
    I added an extra pump behind the rock work and pointed another inlet behind the rocks to sensure enough flow.

    Now I can only view the tank form the front, but I think my inmates appreciate their new living space :p

    So here it is before my new scaping:

    I added some fine substrate over the older courser one ;)

    REally nice fine stuff. Got it from Umhlanga under the low tide water mark ;)

    Think it will help with my nitrates...
