60p- Green Peaks


Dragon cove is no more, new scape is up.
More of an iwagumi style utilizing wood as opposed to rocks.
Likely start as iwagumi for the moment, then later on fill the background with stems to change things up a bit.
Tank will be dry started so fissidens can attach to the wood, aiming to have it filled around xmas time.

Blyxa grows well with at least 30 par, ive had it in non co2 setups as well and it does ok, grows slowly but doesnt melt.
Background is a window film tint you can buy at lowes or home depot, frosted color.

As far as the pipes, you need special s.s. bending equipment, and a welder if you want the suction cup pins. not cheap equipment but keep an eye on the sale forum, i might start making these on the side.

Swapped the glosso for some h.c shortly after the last photos, wanted something smaller for the foreground. Iphone pic will have to do for now.

She a beau! I dig the aquascaping, especially the middle pool of HC. How you liking the Current LED+, get any pearling with the lights? I miss the shimmer effect of LEDs but can't find a nice fixture WITH a remote.



Your tank is looking sweet, very clean. Got any more pictures, close up?

Sweet setup.. I'm thinking of getting the 60P as well. Question for you... is that an Ikea Besta you're using for a stand?

Led + is ok, i like the light but im not a big fan of the narrow field of light. It doesn't have a wide optic, so it casts a shadow, more so with my scape because the rocks block quite a bit of the light. Im considering getting an inexpensive t5 ho light and re purposing this one. It grows plants well, just not ideal for my setup.

What made you decide against using it? I'm worried about durability/stability if I get it. Did it seem pretty sturdy? Did you reinforce it any? Thanks for your insight!

It was plenty stable, its ikea though so if you leave standing water on the surfaces, after a while it will bubble the laminate.
