ADA 75p drystart journal

So I started an ADA 75p tank with the dry start method using hc. I'm on week 4 now and everything seems to being going very well, I'm thinking of letting it go another month or two before I flood it.
Day 1




Week 2

Week 3



Week 4
I received some 1-2 grow that was more than half dead and decided to throw the cups in the tank anyway. They didn't make it! Lol



Today

I also threw in some glosso in the upper right hand corner by the wood which is doing great also.

Ok guys, I decided to take out the wood and just go with rock, I'm going to go get more rock tomorrow, what do you guys suggest as far as placement, and what I should put in the tank plant wise once I flood it?

That looks good with or without the wood. Might I suggest bringing the rocks up a bit higher to make a small slope. I think it would be more dynamic that way.

Nice. Now what matters most is do you like it? If you are satisfied with any scape you set your tank with, then it honestly doesn't matter what anyone else thinks.
