40 Gallon Breeder Aquascape Ideas?
I'm planning on converting my existing tank over to a West African river themed biotope. I'm thinking of keeping Congo Tetras, an African Butterfly Fish, an Elephant Nose, and maybe an Upside Down Catfish. For plants, I'm thinking of Bolbitis heudelotti, Anubias nana, a single Nymphaea maculeta, and possibly Crinum aquatica or calamistratum. I think I will need to get lots of branchy driftwood as well, and a couple larger rocks.
What style of aquascapes would be suitable for the 40 gallon breeder dimensions? (36"x18"x16") I am leaning towards an island style aquascape, or a triangle style. Any other styles that might be worth investigating?
