Picked up one of the new "Edge 2" 12 gallon tanks yesterday after quite a bit of consideration. It'll be my first venture into aquariums for fish and plants, actually. I believe I'm covered with all the preparation gear (more powerful filter, heater & separate thermometer, algae magnet, API master test kit, dechlorinator and so forth).
Currently I'm still in the planning phase of how how I'd like to set up the interior. I've been browsing for design ideas for a tank that's so narrow and tall and it seems a bit tricky to get proper coverage at the top. I'd like to avoid a lopsided feel with empty space up there.
Right now I'm thinking a rather large piece of driftwood (if I can get one to fit into the opening) at a diagonal would be a decent focal point. What I'm unsure of is the plants.
Would stuff like amazon swords, anarcharis, myrio and hygrophila augustifolia, in time, provide sufficient coverage for the background?
Thanks in advance!
