so today with the help of another tpt member (Heartnet) .. i rescaped the tank with some of his ideas... (imo i love the hardscape and gonna keep it that way... )





now im thinking for foreground plant imma use elocharis belem and hope to get a really good cover over all the front and over the ends of the wood. if anyone has any other suggestions im all ears as in my final scape i want the eyes to lead to the center where the wood sort of comes together... giving that walking into a forest look... with a big meadow of forground plant in front..... i plan to use some moss in the wood... maybe where the woods come together... to give it that dark look that your going into a dense area...

chime in on thoughts and ideas...

future plans : get the co2 going with a inline diffuser, change tubing to clear vinyl and get a lily intake, setting up the spray bar to go over the whole tank, rob friend of dslr camera (it really does help knowing someone who does small filming projects and has a back yard with a putting green to build stuff in), stocking the tank (current fauna ideas are : scarlet badis, sakura red cherries, amano shrimps, ottos)

People i need to give credit to
Joraan: the blyxa is gonna be awesone
GordanRichards: the parva did very well emersed
Heartnet: yea i think we hit with the hardscape... it really does grow on you

Nice change on the scape, the clear vinyl will most likely become waterlogged and turn opaque white.

What I personally can't wait for is everything to grow in and the money to change out the pipes to glass and tubing to clear I think it's gonna be awesome and my little away from home at home
