Today I decided to re-scape yet again. The new scape has an obvious focal point, has depth, and used the odd number rule (1, 3, 5).
I could really use some feedback please so if you are viewing please drop a few words. Constructive criticism is very much welcome.
DSM= 2 Months: I'm moving in 1 month so not filling makes the move easier.
Flora= HC, Frogbit, and possibly some DHG in the back.
Before I had trouble with GDA and GSA but it was manageable until I started dosing EI. When I started EI dosing I figured I needed more light so I turned the second light on changing my light from 50-60PAR(Medium Light) at the substrate to 100-110PAR (highlight), and that was a mistake.
This time, I am going to try and keep the algae at bay with Frogbit. The plan is to completely cover the surface of the water with this awesome plant and if I need more light I can just turn on the other light giving the tank 100-110PAR (highlight) at the substrate. Note: Of course the Frogbit will greatly reduce the actual PAR at the substrate, but that is the point. Also, I plant to start with one light and see how things respond first.
Please comment on this. Do you think this is a good plan?
I want to keep this tank as beautiful and simple as possible. The HC carpet has proven itself to look great and be low maintenance. I hope to have another beautiful carpet in the next few months. For now, I must focus on other things.
Thanks for looking.
