Moved some stuff around yesterday getting the pantanal a bit more lighting in the center and getting the Wallachi off to the right since it was growing like crazy. Seems a bit more balanced so we...

Think the pantanal should be moved towards the middle. I'm somewhat pleased with the transition of the Belem to the repens to the ludwigia backdropped by the few blyxa. Does for sure get muddy in the...

If the watts if the fixture and bulb match up I believe so. Lots of people just get fixtures from Home Depot for their low tech set ups, like a shop light or something. Cost effective and gets the...

Well keep in mind bulbs can be changed out. On my last set up I had a planted plus bulb and a mid day bulb. For my current led set up I use a 10k spectrum as well as a 6,500k for some color. I would...

Research what specific plants you want and purchase light based on their specific requirements. Seems a bit pointless to buy a kit though if your not going to use the filter. Also in my opinion if...

I just acquired a dozen jelly bean tetras that school really well. They have great color and stick together well in the mid section of the tank and are very active. Reasonably priced fish that have a...

Well I really like the branchy look I have going. I'm not totally dissatisfied, I just wish the stood out more. Thinking bigger pieces that are more pronounced. Not sure though but I have time to...

Hmm. Can't seems to get this right. Maybe I'll order some more woo from Tom Barr and have him pick something for this sized tank. I do love the wood in that link!

It would be the same scape wood wise. That will remain the same only angles may be changed. Would just move blyxa back and not have as much. This way the back piece of wood would be more visible...

What if I pushed the japonica back a bit, got rid of or moved the auberti and did a border of repens or Porto Velho. Or did patches of blyxa and repens/Porto Velho throughout the middle?

I would...

I checked out some of Tom Barrs Dutch scapes and he's got driftwood in there but it doesn't appear to be manzanita. Malaysian wood perhaps. Looks too complex for my current knowledge.

I think it's better. There are definite issues but ones that I think can be easily fixed down the road. Plant wise I did want some color contrast but I'm going to wait and see once the back Belem and...

Oh well. Bought and paid for already, chalk it up to inexperience again. I'll grow it out for a while and if I don't like it I'll sell it on the cheap and try Taiwan moss.

I plan on using flame moss on the more vertical tips so perhaps that will soften the angle a bit. I'm also thinking behind that in the back left is where I will plant the Belem stems.

Oh I thought you meant more vertical. I can bury the one on the right a bit to get it more horizontal like this.http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/06/20/u9u6u2u3.jpg
