I love the simplicity of what you had setup before with just a few rocks in the field look. I'm excited to see where you end up with your current build now that you're rebuilding the tank. I like the Ohko rock how you have it. It seems to give off a mountain like effect with the holes and edges. Keep up the good work and definitely keep up the updates!

Wow that's just beautiful! Did you save/sell all the ground cover plants?

You get my vote for HC and leaving the rocks. Looks awesome!

The one-rock-cube looks nice in pictures, but I soon grew bored with it.

I traded most the hc for shrimp (you can't buy them in shops here) and put them in another tank. The remainder was added to the new scape yesterday.

Plant wise I think I've settled on hc (no more than what you see below), dwarf hg and mini pellia. Just those three. The foreground and path will be kept mostly bare.

Can anyone recommend an outflow pipe that doesn't pretrude very far into the tank. There's probably brands I've never heard of.

So far the GUSH oPollen Mini 13 has been suggested to me. It comes out 80mm.

(the bubble pipe in the pic above extents 140mm, which is way too much).

Thanks.

I don't know but I believe your outflow is for a 60CM aquarium. I feel it's fairly big for my 60P. I think any nano pipe would be better.

I think they might be, not 100% sure what they are. They weren't pricey.

Love the tank full of rock. Small clear suction cups could hold willow moss against the back wall. Could be placed 3/4 of the way up... may end up looking like clouds. Would not want plants to fill in that amazing hard scape too much, but with the eye you have for rock placement, I'm certain the finished product will look amazing. An incredible tank that I will want to see progress.

Thanks!

I had over 15kg of rock, and I had pics of a couple scapes as inspiration up on the screen as I arranged and rearranged.

I had this Cal Aqua Efflux Nano before and it didn't protrude out very far at all. You can get an idea of how big it is in my old Mini M here.

Thanks for the info. Cal dimensions are hard to track down.

It'll be a week or so until I get the mini pellia, but here's where I think it might go.

Default Update

I recently got a little more done on this tank. Tied some mini pellia to rocks and mesh. Also tied some fissidens. I still plan to add some dhg on the sides, just haven't done that yet. The hc has been in for about 3 weeks and has had 1 light trim. It growing well.
