New Tank Rio 180 planted journal


Just started this tank after years of keeping Cichlids. This is my first planted tank but I feel confident as I have been planing it for the last 2 years. this is the first step, getting the hardscape right. this is my first layout (probably of many) all comments on it welcome and encouraged!

Love the layout!

I would create a more prominent slope with the substrate going towards the driftwood. Also, additions of lava rocks (or your choice) around the driftwood would look awesome

Thanks Chrisinator, I will be adding a lot more substrate to build slopes which will create a sort of valley between the two areas of wood.
