Thank,

I did some work tonight, put the light on the roof! A bigger job than i think.

The tank is on the stand, Angelfins received my tank yesterday and shipped the same day!

I hope my Savannah will never try to jump on that light..he is only 6 months old.

Looking goo so far! Very stream lined setup.. as for your furry friend?? Spray bottle, anytime they go near the tank spray them and eventually/hopefully they learn to stay away..

Hi,

Here an update. The planning change a little bit, it more difficult than i think to do an aquascape. One bag of 9L amazonia normal, 3L powder and 4 kg colorado sand left!

The left side will work. The right side, it will be more dark, any suggestionfor more dark/green plant ?

Here a few pic, any comments will be appreciate!



Before cutting the tree

By:

- Aponogeton crispus 'Red' (Background)
- Hygrophila pinnatifida (after UG)
- Ludwigia glandulosa or Cryptocoryne beckettii 'Petchii' (Between rock )(right)
- Cryptocoryne wendtii 'Mi Oya' (Between rock) (left)

On the left side, i can repalce

On the left side, i can repalce

- Didiplis diandra
- Proserpinaca palustris ‘cuba’
- Lilaeopsis Mauritiana

Only UG with Pogostemon Helferi ?

Rotala rotundifolia - back left corner ?


With this configuration, it will be more open left side and green (peaceful). Right side more dark (dangerous side).

I did some change, i put more substrate en left and right corner. I think almost is done.

More space left side for UG. Right side, bigger space between rock for the plant.

What do you think ?

A small update,

Waiting my plant, i put the powder in and install all tubing.

The external filter dont fit in the stand with my new external heater...so i put it on right side outside the stand.

My diffuseur is small, i will upgrade it soon.

Sorry for the poor picture, need to upgrade this iphone.
