After having all of my shrimp die out a while back, I decided it was time to tear down my Fluval Spec and start over.
I bought a new bag of eco-complete, scrubbed all the algae off the tank, emptied the water, boiled the wood and rinsed off the plants, so now it's time to rescape.
So far all I have in the tank is the wood, but I have the choice between eco-complete or ADA Amazonia for my substrate, and some vals, java ferns, java moss, anubias nana, swords, and some sort of stem plant for my plants, although I can buy more.
I'll be posting my progress in this thread, and asking for advice.
Here's a pic of the tank:
So my questions are: What substrate should I use?
Any ideas at all on the plants? I'm completely stumped.
What do you think of the hardscape?
