It had a background siliconed to it, so all the algae and lord knows what else was behind it.

After a bit of elbow grease its clean Smile (I wouldnt go to bed till I finished)







Its stunning, next to no scratches, I found just 1 on the front, its tiny and a few on the back where the gravel was removed Smile

And now filled with water and fish Smile. I just cant decide on the background, none of the ones I have suit how I have scaped it, I am thinking just a sheet of brown paper.









The major disapointment was the fact I ran out of sand Sad

Absolutely stunning, and has really inspired me for how I want to scape my tank Very Happy

I know you collected the branches yourself, but what type are they? Alder or oak? Or something else?

These are alder twigs with the bark left on, I used alder in my other 180 too, I have to say I really like the alder branches. Praying for a storm so some more get blown down lol.
