ive decided to start my journal of my first planted tank. It will be an Iwagumi styled tank.
Originally the tanks was custom built (66L x 22W x 18H) to be a saltwater aquarium wall divider in my old loft apartment in Miami
Unfortunately only a couple months after the setup i moved....to New Jersey. and the tank sat in a corner for about a year because i had lost all my fish during the move and i just didn't feel like going through the hassle of setting up and maintaining a saltwater tank anymore. i contemplating selling it for a while until one day i stumbled upon a picture of Amano's tanks and fell in love with the planted Iwagumi style tanks which led me here.
heres how the tanks sat for a long time (filled with garbage)
finally started working on it (painted and refinished the doors)
did some remodeling to the wall behind it
just received some Seiryu Rocks (more are on the way)
i am still awaiting for the rest of my supplies to arrive including my dirt so i can continue with the scaping
Also im trying to decide wether to go with LED (2 30" Finnex Ray 2) or T5 (3-4 60" bulbs in a custom built fixture)
any input or criticism is welcome and appreciated
