This is the direction I ended up taking with the tank a d so far no die back and everything has been going really well

In a few weeks I should see a differance from this pic I should hope(I tested this substrate against a potting mix from my local hardware and gues what grew the glosso quicker lol?

Not the as that's for sure haha)

Now I have a good idea on the scape I want to do but not sure how it will work in a tank that's no so tall tho

No that torch was just for my own lols

I need to go find more rocks for the scape and line it yet so I'm close but no cigar...

Btw that's my first ever success working with wood toooo lol

Last time it failed haha

boxhead1990 So il be starting this tank from scratch again soon but with glosso instead of hc or maybe both who nows

But I wouldn't mind the tank just being low tech aswell

ATM I'm building a cabinet for it so thats the first thing on the to do list

Il update tomorrow on what's going on next (I need some clip on led lights before I can really start the tank up anyways

Okay I got the tank today don't worry the 3 foot light isn't staying lol it's just there till I sort out a more suitable fixture although I may set up a little tank next to this one aswell

Anyways here's the pictures

I am dry starting this tank

Anyone suggest any additives I could get easily or locally in Australia that would be awesome as I'm gunna leave it emerged for as long as I can

And some criticism on the scape would be good too

Also I'm using up aqua aqua soil in this tank
