Thanks!! They were around $400 shipped (in lots of bubble wrap in a bunch of separate boxes). For a 60P you would probably want two medium and a few smalls or one medium and a few smalls. Not really sure what you are going for but Frank is always very helpful and willing to talk things out with you.

Putting the substrate together. Tried it a few different ways and this is what I settled on. More to come soon.

As a background stem plant Rotala Butterfly would look great and contrast well with the rocks and foreground.

Interesting, you chose to bury the rocks in the substrate rather than place them on top?

I think they would look nicer on top, to see the entire rock IMHO.

Right now I'm planing on doing all green plants, but if I were to choose a red one that would definitely be a contender. Thanks for the advice!

I thought burying them would look a bit more natural. I have since pulled them out a little more. I'm concerned about the right side of the medium stone being a little bare. Not sure if I should try and get another stone or just plant it as is.

I think you need another large rock in the right corner in order to tie it all together. It's looking pretty good as is though.

Default Plants!!!!!

My plants are on the way! This has been a really long and tedious wait but I wanted to start it off right.

Since I decided to go all in on this one I also decided to try 100% Tissue Cultured plants. Tomorrow should be the big day for planting!

I'm really excited to start off on the right foot with plants that have no algae or snails from the very beginning. BBA was the bane of my existence in my Fluvial Edge (not the right tank to learn hi-tech principals on for sure) and I hope (probably naively) never to see it again.

Very cool. Where did you order the plants? I have been looking for that brand of tissue culture plants.

Anubias is an Italian TC plant grower. I was able to place an order with ADG for these. They have the best customer service I have ever run into. Frank has been very helpful thought this process.

The plants look a little beat up (I'm sure they have been in a box that was not handled lightly) but not too bad. I'm anxious to get them home and wash the gel off to see what I'm working with. Stay tuned... this should be interesting.

Oh,yes I see, I just thought the rocks were amazing to look at and not want to waste an inch of viewing space.

Those plants look awesome! I really wish all LFS stocked those, Tropica and ADA Wabi-Kusa.
