Wow, the rescape looks great!
Are you going to do a carpet plant for all that sand? I have a hard time leaving areas open like that..i just see it is more space to plant more plants!
thanks! i realy want something to fill in that sand area. not sure yet if i want to cover all of it but im trying to decide on the right cover for it, i might use a couple diff types to get some textures in there. but im think DHG belem with a mixture of the hydrocotle sib. mixed in. i realy like that combo of textures together. or i might try somthing new but im guna take my time with that part and work on my trimming skills for the stem plants in the back haha
Today i made a light stand with wire conduit piping and some chain worked out prety good. now the light reaches all the way to edges and does not get cut off from the clamps i was using to hold the light up before. in addition this looks so much better then rusty clamps.
in addition i added a field of hydrocotle to the open area, it def needed somthing to fill in that open space i think it still need a grassy plant in the back or hear and there for a natural look. ive been researching pictures of different foregrounds to see what looks best for my scape. i might try experimenting with some mosses in the future. the dark green is really contrasty again most of the other foreground plant species that are around.
and then an update on the 10g after doing a huge trim of the hydro and as i said planted it in the 20L the linophilia is getting much bigger now and the ludwigia is coming back strong from the trim. tho im not sure thats the right plant for that cornner. deppening on how the rottalla wallichi grows in the 20L i might do a swap to get some textual differences. but other wise a lost one of the maculatas everyone else is very happy. And added 15 PFR shrimps to add to the cleaning crew and get some more color in there. hopefully they start to reproduce.
Both tanks look excellent. Any tricks to taking such great pics? I always feel like I'm taking a pic of a mirror, I get so much reflection and glare....
what kidn of camera do you use? if have a flash on that would be a big reason to get a lot of kick back. Also keep the room as dark as possible other then the tank. usually what i do to keep the tank the focus.
