I filled the tank and hooked up the new filter and....WHOA that's a lot of flow. i don't know if my apistos will like this It's like a whirlpool in there! I'm not sure what to do about this...

On another note, I've been thinking a lot about the 'scape. I don't think I will be able to creatively incorporate any of the manzanita. I don't know what it is about manzanita, but I can't use it right! I have a nice piece of driftwood that I'll be attaching trident fern to, and that will go on one far side of the tank. I'll have something in front of the driftwood--some sort of low midground plant or high foreground plant. Maybe if I create a slope, I can put Staurogyne 'porto velho' or 049 there. I don't know where to go from there. I'm stuck!
