36 gallon bowfront

Hello,
I've decided to start a journal to document the progression of my new bowfront

Specs....

TANK: 36 gallon bowfront and stand from petsmart

HEATER: Eheim 150w

FILTER: fluval aquaclear 50 (probably going to get a canister at somepoint) Will be purchasing an eheim surface skimmer hopefully

LIGHTING: 24 inch current USA freshwater+, 30" finnex stingray (I'm hoping to stay in the low to medium light range, I'm thinking I have around 30-40 par at the bottom of the tank)

HARDSCAPE: Ghostwood, Dragon Stone

SUBSTRATE: ADA aquasoil, Supernaturals sand...I forgot what kind

FERTS: I plan to use the dennerle all in one fertilizer weekly

Some pics...

Ghostwood from bloomsandbranches


Initial setup


Filled and planted


This......Is when I realized I hated the scape, went to fast and needed to start over. So the previous picture scape was up for about a day....

New and current scape


I'm currently dry starting the tank to allow the flame moss and fissidens to attach and to allow everything to establish their roots
