Nice tank Jaygee
I use Berkley 100% fluorocarbon Vanish 2lb line. It is really almost invisible inside the tank. Just found it on amazon.

Hi everyone! I just purchased my first home, a small condo, and was trying to figure out how to incorporate a planted tank into my small living room. I had wanted a 40g breeder, but I think it will be too much for the space (hard to imagine for some of you, I know) and my new loan-owner's tiny budget. Someone suggested a 12 long... so here I am! Learning!

Thinking simple, maybe Iwagumi-ish scape to show off my CRS and some of my pretty male Japan strain specialty guppies (Tanaka breeder).

If you use thread it's better since it does tend to "disappear" over time instead of fishing line which will practically last forever

Congrats on your purchase! In terms of the tank though, if you plan to use Seriyu Stones (with most Iwagumi), CRS tend to not do well IME. Nevertheless good luck and I can't wait to see your tank!

It is doable with very low maintenance plants and low bioload. The lighting must be perfect too otherwise algae would be insane because how low the tank is.
