Evolve 8 Nano Tank- First true planted/scaping adventure
Just set up my new Evolve 8 a few days ago. I am using Floramax substrate, and have a Cryptocoryne wendtii 'green' to be a little bush, Staurogyne repens to hopefully grow as a carpet, and Alternanthera reineckii 'cardinalis' in the back left.
With the zebra rocks and pink reineckii, I hope to have some pops of bright color to really stand out in the aquarium.
I am looking for critiques/suggestions, and am open to ideas on how to improve my hardscape and plant arrangement/choices. The reineckii should add some nice height, but should I add height with the hardscape, too? What would complement the zebra rock?
I am going to dry start my tank (as long as I have the patience), but am thinking ahead to livestock choices, as well. I don't think I'm ready to challenge myself enough to do shrimp, so any suggestions will have to stick with fish.
I'm looking forward to some feedback and thanks ahead of time for any help you guys can give me.
