So, the scape is a basic triangular scape that I'm actually pretty happy with.
Some of the substrate fell when I filled so lost some HC, and the used power sand-aquasoil combo I had got knocked up which pissed me off a bit.
Not quite sure whether having that huge open space on the right with just HC is the best, but couldn't find any decent ideas to fill it with other plants or hardscape. A bit worried the C. wendtii 'Brown' might get too big, but we shall see how it grows. I also wanted to find somewhere to put moss, but just nothing really called out to me unfortunately.
A lot of the plants are in emersed form so I'm expecting some serious melting. The stems have to do a lot of filling in before this scape looks close to where it should be.
Currently running the lights for 5 hours, and am gonna dose EI, but I might modify the regime slightly. I'll figure that out later. Gonna skip dosing today, and start tomorrow just to give the plants a bit of setting in time.
Came back home this morning and saw the tank has also cleared up somewhat, I'm using Purigen so I'm hoping that would be the case. I'm planning to do daily water changes for the first week, and from then on more maybe every other day, and eventually space them out more till I'm doing one once a werk. But, I'm going on holiday for a few days next week which will mean I'll have to leave this alone for a while. A bit dangerous but I have no choice.
Any comments, criticism and suggestions are very welcome!
