I've been a spectator of this hobby for many years, but now I'm finally having a go myself.
I've always enjoyed these planted tank journals so I thought I'd share and post my own too.
I chose a 45cm square ADA tank, which turned out to be more challenging to plan a scape for than I realised.
What made it more challenging is I didn't have much rock. But after breaking up some pieces and a lot of rearranging my partner and I got a scape we were pretty happy with.
I used a bottom layer of 9L ADA AS and then put 9L AS Powder on top.
This made it pretty hard to modify the scape later without mixing the two substrates up. I regretted not just getting all powder type so that I could have played with rearranging the soil in different slopes.
I had to break up some of the plainer rocks with a hammer to make little rocks to make the layout work.

This is going to be a learning experience and hopefully I can come to you guys for help when I mess up
