Here is the dirt in the tank as i slope it fron to back & back corner to center.
Here we go with the hardscape, all of this driftwood with the exception of 1 peice came from the old man river, they were to large to bake or boil so they got soaked in salt for a long time, they still ended up leaching quite a bit but a month or so later its all clear.
lights hung and running
the plants ready for planting
In with the water for planting ease, notice how little dirt is floating!
Lets start planting!
1 month later!
So I had seen some substantial growth from all varieties of plants with exception of the microsword, I hated the scape even though the growth looked good. So yesterday I ripped it down and left nothing but gravel and 1/4 the water and did a full rescape. I will take some better photos when it's night out. But for now here are some I took after all the debris settled!
