I had a bit of spare time yesterday and was inspired while eating cookies with my kids. Here is my inspiration:
Here is the wood that I had to work with:
The 2.5 Gallon was too small unfortunately so I transferred it to a 10 gallon. I screwed to a piece of rock, screwed on some extra limbs, and added a bunch of Anubias to the to the top. The Anubias were provided from Digsy via a wonderful RAOK..thanks again!! The rest were put into my 75 gallon.
I added some marimo ball pieces and java moss along the cliff edge, and some dwarf sag in the back corner. Not sure what to do with the left side yet though.
I also added some anubias nana petite plantlets to the 'doorway' and along the cliff edge.
I am thinking that this will be a shrimp tank with a school of ottos to graze on the anubias leafs.
This tank has two 13 Watt CFL's in the hood and aluminum foil attached to the underside to help with reflection. i will likely dose excel semi-regularly and some ferts here and there, but i want this to be a very low maintenance tank. Hopefully the anubias will fill in and get nice and bushy.
Any suggestions for the left hand side would be greatly appreciated, i think i exhausted myself with making the tree and trying to attach the nana petites. By the time I got to the left hand side, i kind of lost my mojo. I was thinking of having a fallen tree/log or something on the other side with a rock pile of some sort...not sure yet.
