Trying to figure out which plants I want, I'm thinking all low light plants , I don't know yet. Trying to keep it simple, was thinking just planting on the mound in middle and keeping a clean area all the way around the center. Haven't decided if I want to add a few small pieces of wood to center mound or just plant it. Also wanted to stock it with an atypical fish, I dunno, taking my time :P

Well added a few twigs of oak brushwood I found on my running path. Had to boil it for-ev-er before the tannins at least weren't visable anymore. Plucked a few pieces of java fern from one of my other tanks. Still thinking I'm gonig to grab some narrow leave java fern and some Anubias Nana Petite's for the edges and just keep it at that nice and simple and clean. No idea about fish though yet. Really digging the adobe colored sand and the lava rocks though.

Looks like this is going to be one of those "why didn't I think of that?" tanks.

Nice.

No just flourish like once a week, and a single diy co2 2 liter. it's pretty low maintenance so far, which is what I was shooting for.

Thanks for the compliments and looking.
