Starting this tank with items acquired from SCAPE members almost exclusively
Tank measures 36" L x 6.375" W x 8.5" T (with hard water stains)
Gnarly awesome DW with "lot's of personality"
Eheim 2211 (donated)
Here is a quick pic of the current DW layout, sans substrate, pending hardscape items
Plans for this tank will be low light (mostly from window if that works out) and AquaSoil.
I may try to DSM this tank with some E. acicularis or HC… probably have to supplement LED lighting for that to work.
I may add an Iwagumi-style rocky outcropping, but the Idea is a centered mound to conceal the base of the wood and secure it and let the "branches" hang back into the water. I may tie/glue some H. sp. 'Japan" to the wood like I did in our 8G AIO
For other hardscape options, I have some Yamasa type stone along with 1 smaller piece of Seiryu and a few pieces of petrified wood to choose from.. looking for suggestions on rock to compliment the scape.
Also wondering if I should offset the branch to one side vs. centered, which will leave more room for the DSM-scape.
Open to questions and comments, and thanks for looking!
