5g Hex Aquascaping Ideas?
Hi all, once school gets out in two weeks I plan on working on a Marineland 5g hex tank as a little summer project. I'm planning on putting only RCS in it.
I'm not sure what I want to put in it or how to decorate it. My current idea is to put some kind of stumpy/gnarled driftwood in the center and attaching different plants to it, but I don't know if that will actually look good.
Then I'm not sure what kind if plants would be good.
I'm thinking of java moss but I'm not sure how I would use it in the tank. I hear I could use it in the foreground or I could try to attach it to the wood or some rocks? Maybe wisteria for the background? I think a carpet would be a good idea, but I don't think I'd have the lighting for it.
I tried to find some pictures to work off of but I can't find anything.
Any suggestions for a visually appealing hex design? I'm planning on low light with CO2 and ferts. And what kind of substrate should I use? Currently I'm thinking of black sand but I'm open to other ideas.
