thanks ladies and gents!!!
im so excited its all i can think about and talk to my wife about LOL. so many plans so little time LOL
so, these are my ideas.
1) a african landscape complete with a few african looking trees with moss as my leaves. and even some bare tree type wood to mimmick a couple dead trees.
slanted rocks that look similar to those rocks lions sleep on and view there surroundings.
starting low in the front with gradual up hill to the back and make appearence of mountains in the back.
ground cover would be HC with micro swords placed randomly to give the appearence of bushes.
2) A mangrove type look with root systems and low light low tech plants like moss and anubias's with a few rocks and getting some yellow and blue cichlids maybe 3 pairs to avoid fighting and such.
im toying with the idea of keepinf my 46 gallon and running a co2 line to the new tank using a manifold and seperate needle valve and bubble counter.
benefits of low tech would be no need to remove 50% of 180 gallons weekly and i can keep it simple. just a shame though becuae of the light included would be great for high light. so so torn
