Aquascape by proxy
So, for some reason I am feeling exceptionally uninspired recently and as such I'm looking for inspiration (by that i mean I'm desperately seeking someone with an idea for a good looking setup) I'm putting a display tank in my living room that needs to look good and I want advice on how to plant it! Here are the basics!
Tank: standard 55g on an oak stand with matching oak canopy (stand and canopy handmade by me!)
Substrate: MGOPM capped in black diamond
Lighting: T5 fixture with 2 bulbs, both 54w if memory serves.
Co2: DIY laziness, 2 gallon jugs with a yeast mixture hooked up to air stones
Filtration: 2 eheim filters hooked up in series
Available plants: ~10 small/medium amazon swords
1 bunch of java fern (it's a decent sized chunk too)
TONS of mixed java and Xmas moss
Some other type of hygro I am unsure about
2 large A. Barteri
1 A. Nana petite
2 mid sized Maximo balls
Hard scape materials:
1 piece of driftwood (will post pictures)
As many river rocks as are needed (the grey sedimentary type often found in areas fed by mountain streams, gray, round, with minor pitting)
I will post pictures of everything in the next day or two, but anyone with a feel for aquascaping and an idea they think would look good using all this feel free to give me your insight!
Hard to give specific feedback without at least knowing what your primary hardscape piece looks like. It'd help to have a picture of your available plants as well to have some idea of the quantity you're working with, how well they're doing etc.
