This aquarium is the replacement for Beach Cliff, that were assembled on 30 June 2012.
I used wood instead of a mainly rocks... but not redmoor. I liked this hornwood and the wood i saw at the store was pretty neat.
It took me long hours to test the wood layout and have all wood assembled this way (7 pieces on the two wood parts that you can see at the picture).
Someone that lives with me
wanted sand... so i used La Plata Sand on the front and on the "river". This sand was a left over of Beach Cliff. Between the sand and the Aquasoil i use ADA Aqua Gravel - very nice piece of small rocks.
Different from what is suppose to happen, i used the wood in the front of the aquarium and plant behind it. They are all stem plants.
In "front" i will only use Ammania Bonsai.
On the left side i uses Hottonia Palustris behind and Rotala Wallichi - trimming is expected to be hard.
On the right side / middle i used Rotala Green behind and Ludwidia sp.
Moss is Leptodictium Riparium, new from Anunias (all other plants are Tropica).
Lets see if the growing will make the layout i thought of.
