That looks amazing. Seiryu stone? Also how are you planning the HC to grow on the rocks. I watched your set-up video and couldn't see any substrate there.

Honestly I do not know how. It's an experiment. Right now the HC are melting, so it really might not work without having a subscrate for the HC

And it's seriyu stone i believe. thanks for the comment!

If you want to try growing plants on the rocks, you may want to consider first laying down some moss as a sort of substrate, and then planting on top of that once it is established.


What kind of fish are those in the 60P?

Cool tanks!
