a little update.

i took out one of the small stones, added a small left over anubias petite and some dwarf hair grass

anyone know what the name of this plant is? i really like it.. it's unhealthy at the moment because the lighting situation wasn't that good in my 20L - hence i moved it to this one

close up of the right side

couple of takeaways:
1) fluval stratum is not too bad planting
2) fluval stratum is TERRIBLE when you want to replant
3) fluval stratum is TERRIBLE when you try to place the rocks on a slope..

i actually added some more substrate to the right side.. don't know if you can tell but i decided not to bury the rocks but to just place it on top of the substrate. Tried... and failed. it doesn't stay 'up' on the slope like i need it to.. keeps falling down slowly. so i buried it.

i haven't tested the ph level yet, but i will sometime this week. my 20L is actually more acidic than my 5.5G right now which i find odd... we'll see how this one turns out.
