I am fairly new to the aquascaping scene. My father, who is an avid aqua scaper and fish breeder had introduced me to the hobby. For me aquascaping is relaxing and allows me to channel my inner imagination. I have been messing around with a 20 gallon for the past year or so and have never really been happy with the finished product. So I recently decided to start a new layout. I am hoping to share this experience with some fellow hobbyists and get some good feedback on this thing along the way. I'm hoping with some friendly collaboration along the way i can get this thing right
So to start. Here is my project:
Current satellite Plus Pro LED light
API Medium Canister filter
20 gallon tank
daily dosing of PPS Dry ferts
Plants currently in my project:
Ludwigia SP Red
Anubias Nana Barteri (On the way)
Looking at the current layout i will be adding the Anubias Nana Bateri around the rockscape in front of the Nymphoides.
That being said:
My main concern is the back right quadrant of the tank. right now i have some green Hornwort in the back with a couple pieces of dwarf sag it front. My thought was this would create a nice transition back to front to the hair grass. Would also create a nice focal point off center to compliment the rock formation. Im wondering if this would look ok or am i way off on this? Other recommendations?
My other concern is around the Parviflorus. I'm wondering if i need something a little softer to transition between it and the hair grass or just let the hair grass bump into it? Maybe a piece of the anubias or some Rannunculus or other?
My last concern is that i am thinking of putting a piece of the Java Fern moss on the small lip on the front of the tall rock to give it a little age? I like to be careful with the moss though as it spreads like crazy.
I think that's it for now. I'd like to open it up to general comments now and see where this thing goes from here.
