My first approach to aquascaping

100 liters, co2, 0.96w/liter, weekly ferts (pmmd), redclay for plantroots. Floating riccia is still under growing, will be attached later on. Possibly the small Echinodorus (two stems) will leave as the javafern"windelov".

Plants:
-Eleocharis acicularis
-Hemianthus callitrichoides
-Lilaeopsis Novea-Zealandiae
-Cryptocoryne walkerii (?)
-Taxiphyllum barbieri (Vesicularia dubyana)

After one week:

I think its off to a great start! It'll be super nice once those plants on the left grow in. I looking forward to your updates.

Update

After one month, 23.2.2011:


HC's been growing nicely, Eleocharis acicularis and Lilaeopsis Novea-Zealandiae are both somewhat slow. Or i'm having problems with them. Weekly ferts (pmdd,no3 and fe), Co2 pressurized. Adding now daily a dose of EasyCarbo, fight over the algae problem.

Maybe in a 3-4 week I could do my first trimming.

That's nice, I love that tree. If I can find something similar I would like one in mine. I would have to say let it grow and enjoy. Looks great.
