Here are some pictures during the hardscape construction which was broadcasted using facebook live stream:
The hardscape is done:
I made a few small adjustments regarding the hardscape (I fixed better the wood and cut two branches that were extra ).
So the tank after the first week planting looks like this:
The plants began to grow well, evidence that the soil provides necessary nutrients.
Of course water is still not 100% clear, cycling of the tank is still in progress.
About the livestock, I made a list of species that will "live" in this setup but I don't want to divulge yet their names because the list is not "chiseled in stone". The only species that are sure is Amano Shrimp.
I hope you enjoy my project , please if you have questions or suggestions express them freely!
I definitely missed some details but I will come back regularly with impressions about the evolution of this layout.
I will keep you up to date!
P.S. Thanks Catalin Gagiu for pictures.
