So it's house move day tomorrow so perfect chance for a rescape. I've decided I'm gonna rip all the wood out and go for an Iwagumi tank. But still using all the plants I have already, saves having to buy new ones.

Will keep you guys posted with pics. I'm sure I'll need some of your guys tips when it comes to the layout 😄😄

Thanks guys. I'm kind of looking forward to it but at the same time I know its gonna be a ball ache.

Well I managed to score some free rock off someone today. 3 x 30kg rocks which then had a running in with a sledge hammer to make smaller pieces to use in the rescape. Pretty happy with the variety and amount of rocks I got the option of using now

So progress made. Plants chilling out in a bucket, wood and rocks removed, fish in their temporary home and water drained down. More work tomorrow
