Mountainscape [6 gal]


Presenting you my new scape.
Dimensions are 35x29x22(h) cm - 23 liters or 6 gallons.
For lighting i am using led pannel 10W.
Filtration will be Eden 501.
CO2 pressurised 500g bottle and atomizer.
Stones are Seiryu, most of them are treated with hammer.
I am planning to plant it mostly with Fissidens fox, and maybe some other moss/plants.

Hardscape:

Thanks Mikey I usually spend half an hour for scaping tank of this size. If i do not like it, I pull all out and start again from scratch This was scaped from 2nd attempt.
This was 1st attempt:



I do not like it as it was too simetrical...

I found inspiration for this scape in Greatest croatian mountain - Velebit

I have glued Fissidens fox on the stones with super glue (liquid). Next step is attaching Fissidens to the smal lava rocks. This rocks goes to the gaps that left.

Thanks guys All equipment on their place. Filter seems to doing great job - water is crystal clear! CO2 set up on 1 bps which gives me dark green DC. I think it should be enough for mosses.
Left only making moss bombs (gluing fissidens on small lava rocks)

Very nice! Maybe try to do a nice sky blue backdrop with white small white clouds and add some plants to fill in the foreground banks. Ah, I need to start getting into making nice mini aquascapes. Any plans on livestock?
