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!

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(?).

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!
