So I set up an Amazon biotope tank which later turned into a Amazon fish tank with various plants. The problem is I am having a lot of trouble creating an aquascape that works well and looks nice.
Inhabitants of the tank are 6 GBRs, 18 cardinal tetras, 8 dwarf purple pencilfish, 8 lemon tetras. You can see what the tank looks like now in my tank signature. Just fast forward to post #30.
I got a whole ton of plants from a local RAOK in and now I am having trouble incorporating them in.
The plants in the tank and the plants from the RAOK are
1 node of E. belem
Hydrocotyle japan (how do I plant this btw?)
Ludwigia sp. (RAOK-er claims its ludwigia red but I think its a different ludwigia species)
I numbered the plants I have in my drawing. Driftwood is brown and green are the intake and outtake tubes.
4- Alternanthera rosefolia
5- Sunset hygro
6- staurogyne repens
8- e parviflorus
9- rotala vietnam
Any help with how to arrange this would be very helpful. please check my tank journal to see a pic of how my tank looks
