School Aquarium Project - Done for the Year!

Greetings to all! This year I am officially a high school senior !!! In celebration and honor of this, I have decided to move all my aquarium and the equipment to my school's biology classroom and do an aquascape there. My goal for this is to have both a capstone to my journey as an aquascaper before college and an opportunity to share this art to people in my school. It will not only be an aethestic addition, but also a teaching tool that hopefully will stir up interest in some younger souls...

The whole project is all in the context of taking a decent two-year break from my last scape, found here. I already have all the necessary equipment ready—only the aquascaping is left.

The hardscape:

Materials List:

- Marineland 90cm*30cm*36cm (L*W*H) Glass Aquarium. Approx. 25g, though with hardscape probably only 20-22.
- Don't know anything about the stand, but it fits the aquarium perfectly

- 36 inch Hagen Glo Dual T5HO
- Giesemann Midday and Aquaflora (both bulbs 3+ years old now. I'll be replacing them if noticable problems occur)
- Pool fiberglass screen to reduce light

- Eheim Classic 2215
- Waterplant Surface Skimmer
- Marineland Carbon (only early on)
- Various biomedia
- CPR Biobale

- Green Leaf Aquariums Nature Beast CO2 Regulator
- Viton/Kynar Universal Check Valves
- 5lb Cylinder
- UP Aqua Inline CO2 Atomizer (12-16 mm tubing)
- ISTA Max Mix Reactor

Substrate & Scaping Materials:
- Twice reused ADA Amazonia
- Stone chippings (off a highway in Utah )
- Other random rocks
- Driftwood picked from the beach (properly treated)

Additives & Fertilizers:
- Seachem Prime
- KH2PO4
- KNO3

More information coming soon~
