I'm soaking some of this awesome driftwood attached to slate that I got from my LFS.
This got me thinking "don't just plop it into the existing tank, go all out"
My current setup can be seen here : My first Planted Tank - 20 g long
Video of my current setup:
Currently my tank has various sizes of Cichlid stones, greek columns, tardis, h2oshow bubbler, anubias, java fern, swords and rotala. it looks like this:
I plan to do a diagonal half sand half raised fluval stratum layout. I'd like to put some of the broken driftwood branches in between the cichlid stones because I cant seem to find a short foreground plant.
In the coming weeks I hope to make it look like this:
Here is the piece of driftwood I bought from LFS ($20) Its been soaking for a day now.
(some branches broke off or will be broken off):
This idea is gonna work out great for me because I'm completing a school of pepperred corycats and they love sand. (I got pool filter sand "nepheline syenite" 50lbs for $10 at pool store)
Also I can now get Bolivian or German rams! I cant wait, Ill keep you guys updated!
