First planted tank!! In fluval edge :)


Finally my new tank is set up! After Hurricane Sandy destroyed my saltwater tank and sold my 29g freshwater tank, I set up a planted tank in my new fluval edge,,
Plants were bought from OVT, who picked the plants and suggested the look of the tank!
Also bought some cherry shrimps from junglefowl
Still a newbie on aquascaping so I would appreciate suggestions/comments
Thank you!

Looks good... maybe adding a small piece of Malaysian driftwood in there somewhere would add more character. You can tie an anubias sp. petite to it too. If not the DW, consider adding some stones.

Looks good. I agree with Brian that you could use a bit of hardsacpe. I think a few small stones or some small manzanita would fit as well. It's always hard to place wood/rocks after it's planted because you have to sacrifice some room.
