Getting started on my 2nd tank today - a 10g Red Cherry Breeder. This is only my 2nd attempt at a planted tank and my 1st attempt to make one look decent. Here's the plan:
Low-Tech, Excel-Based (no Co2) Red Cherry Breeder
: Reusing the light that came with the hood on my first 20g - 8,000K 15w T8 bulb. Just going to dremel off the sides and re-glue the plastic caps to make it fit the length of the 10g.
: Marineland Biowheel Penguin 100
: Fluval 50w
: Seachem Flourite
: Dosing regiment can be seen here - http://www.sudeepmandal.com/hobbies/...-planted-tank/
So, I'm going for a clean, low, open look. Here's what I'm thinking right now for the scape...
Basically, I want to lay down 1.5" of Flourite, then place the Lace Rock into a wall formation about 1/3 down the length of the tank, and fill in another 5-6" of Flourite on the short side of the wall to create a plateau'd area. I want to have a short, grassy plant (dwarf sag or micro sword?) on the plateau and a carpet of either m. quad or glosso down below. I'm going to pepper the rock wall with some kind of moss that I haven't decided on yet.
Here's the lace rock...
And a picture of the lace rock positioned in the tank for a rough idea of the wall...
So, I've acquired pretty much everything I need except for the flora + fauna. Anyone have any m. quad/glosso, dwarf sag, or moss they want to sell???
