After a brief dry dock, will be using my old "Collage" tank and transforming into next years planted tank contest entry. I will be using the custom made OTS Mattenfilter (made from the tank dividers & lid) which will be modified to utilize a paintball CO2 system. I purchased a 18" Fugeray to replace the previous LED setup & will be using AquaSoil substrate (previous setup was w/o any substrate).
The plan is to DSM an HC lawn. The background planting will be pygmy chain sword. The DSM period will continue until just before the entry period. When the tank is finally flooded, will add accent plantings (driftwood pieces w/anubias & java ferns) to complete the scape. Hope this works, wish me luck!
