Dragon Peaks - 17.1 Gallon 23.6 x 11.8 x 14.2

This is my first attempt at aquascaping. I've done about a year plus of researching and planning this out. So let's see where this journey through Dragon Peaks goes!

Before planting

Rockscape - Dragonstone
Substrate - Mr Aquasoil (bottom), ADA Amazonia (top)


Top


After planting and fill

Plants - Cuba, S Repens, Alternanthera, Hygrophila Araguala

Great scape, just watch the AR Mini (I assume it's AR Mini), it might get a bit big for that area eventually.

It is starting to get big. I'm going to have to move some stuff around once everything gets grown in.

I guess that's part of the fun moving around stuff to perfct the scape, although it can be quite the pain at the time.

2 week update

Thanks everyone for the support!







Yesterday I did a 80% water change and removed the big stone that was on the left. It was super hard to clean and the orange dirt/clay kept leaking off into the water so it had to go. I had to add a little more Aquasoil to compensate for its removal and replant some of my hygro stems in the back.



I started fertilizing last week using estimated index method. Super easy just measure with my measuring spoons and drop the powders in. I had to go to Bed Bath and Beyond to find the smidgen and pinch measuring spoons.


I need to get another carbon pad for my Eheim 2213 canister filter because I can smell the tank a bit. I hope that won't suck the nutrients out of the water?????
