Jdmstop's first journa ADA 60P: Abandoned forest

Tank: ADA 60P
Stand: DIY ADA style stand
Light: finnex Ray II
Filtration: Eheim 2215
Heater: hydor inline
Co2: #10 tank with airgas dual stage and clippard mouse valve dispersed using sera inline diffuser

Hardscape:
ADA new ammozonia soil
ADA sand
Seiru stone and pebbles
Driftwood pieces

Flora (emersed setup)
Hydro. Japan
Glossostigma
Staurogen Repens
HC

What do you guys think so far with the setup? Anyone has any suggestion or comments on the current hardscape and the listed of plants?

These plants as they are currently being grown emersed in the plastic container and I have finally finished building the stand today

Initial scape


My daughter being an audience


Building the stand







Finished stand and added ADA sand


Finally Happy Halloween!

Nice work.. Beautiful scape. Your woodwork is stellar and well complements the tank.

That's an awesome scape and stand. Is that stand held together with just glue and biscuits?

Fantastic job on the stand and the hardscape is off to a good start as well.

I used to be indecisive but now I'm not so sure.

Great Tank, Great stand, and cute Daughter. I wish I had your skills to build a stand like that. Just one suggestion... Don't let your daughter grow up too fast. They are much cuter at that age. My daughter is a terror at age 4. lol
