This tank has been running for several months. I've recently rescaped it and put in eco-complete today.

I'll be dosing Excel daily and likely using the EI schedule for ferts. Lighting consists of one 10w CFL bulb.

I love your rocks! The only suggestion I would have is putting some hairgrass or something taller in the background. What kind of snail is that? She's beautiful!

@rengb6

Micro-sword might look good too ;p

Good start here.

Is that HC or babytears in there?

It's a blue ramshorn. I'll be adding some reds once they hatch from my Mini M tank. They should mate with the single blue and hopefully pop out more blue snails.

HC. It has been neglected for the last month in the previous scape so it has become a bit leggy.

If the HC doesn't come in nicely, I'll follow Church's example and plant some of my marsilea minuta in its place. Maybe a blyxa bush in the back corner behind the large stone, too.

Thanks for the comments. :)

Added Java Fern behind the big rock. Added one Anubias petite, placement is still undecided as I am not sure if the HC will fill in nicely.

HC is nice and green. Not as leggy as it was.

Wow the HC is filling in nicely! and what a cute betta! Do you think that you will add a taller background plant? Something bright green to contrast with those pretty red rocks!

The only tall plant I have is Blyxa, and even then it isn't very tall. For now, I'm just going to keep it as is and see how it fills in.
