My last serious planted tank was in 2008. I'm considering this a bigger brother to my old 20cm tank. So I'm going for a similar themed scape here too.
I don't have all the equipment yet, but here is what I have:
ADA CO2 (got it used for cheap!)
Eheim 2211 (no lily pipes yet)
Aqueon 50 watt internal heater
Rocks from a nearby stream
Eheim Aquastyle 9 gallon stand
My stand isn't here yet so I'm just playing around with the hardscape for now. No plants yet either.
Tentative list of plants:
various stem plants? Like Rotala
I don't know what kind of scape I want to go for honestly, something with a lawn of hairgrass in the front sounds nice though. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
Here are my two tentative hardscapes. Let me know which one you like more! I like the second one, the girlfriend likes the first one better. Not sure which one to go for at this point.
Forgive me for the phone quality. My DSLR is out of battery right now.
