Do!aqua 45x24x30cm| Ohko Village | PLANTS ADDED
 
ALOHA everyone! \m/ ^__^

I finally got myself a rimless tank and was influenced to scape it up.

I'd call this my first true "Aquascape".

Anyways Equipment:

Tank: Do!aqua 45x24x30cm
Filter: ZooMed 501
Substrate: Amazonia Aqua Soil
Lighting: Archaea 27w CFL


I would love suggestions on anything that could help this tank out!

Heres a rock scape I messed around with. Any tips would be lovely!

Sweet rocks! What kind of plant are you going to plant?

Nice scape, just needs water & plants to finish it off!

Thanks! I was able to visit the AFA store and picked out the smaller pieces.

Hmmm... Debating on the foreground.
It's between glosso, baby tears, or dwarf hairdresser.
What do you think with my light? Also will be running pressurized co2.
For stem, so far rotala "Vietnam red", Downoi, and don't know what else(?).

hardscape is nice..but unfortunately the size is too small..you need a couple of larger chunks..plants will out grow an' mar the depth of it what it seems right now

Current Plants:
Rotala nanjenshon, wallichii, singapore,macranda "japan red", zosterfolia, golden-nesea, barclaya longifolia red, S. Repens 49, Downoi, limnophilia hippuroide, Didipilis Diandra, Dwarf Hair Grass, Erio 'Japan', Blood Vomit, and Glosso, and random mini-pellia :p

Pressurized CO2 at 2-3 BPS 5 hours

I know the tank looks jungly, but I really wanted to test out some of my favorite plants to grow them myself. :p

Im thinking of removing the ember school, and sticking to the galaxy danio school.

LMK what you guys think on improvement.

THANKS FOR VIEWING.

I think this looks lovely. The plants go nicely together, despite being a "jungle." :)

Beautiful use of colors and leaf textures! You probably already know that the plants completely overwhelm the stone work, so I would recommend looking for bigger stones!

thanks! yeahhh... "jungle" :p

Once I get enough trimmings of the rotala 'japan red', singapore, S. repens 049, and the golden nesea, it should look less jungly ;) .....i hope lol
