My first real aquascape.

So as the title reads, this is my first real aquascape and I’d like to make this for myself to document the progress and failures so that I can come back and see where things went right/wrong. The tank is a uns 5n and is being filtered by an Eheim 2211(the filter was hooked up after the photos). For substrate I used Tropica aquarium soil. Shooting for a full carpet of dwarf hairgrass (tropica tissue culture) so I planted heavily. Luis Navarro at Aquarium Design Group helped me along and was very, very helpful.

One week update: the root growth absolutely exploded overnight last night 1/29/19-1/30/19. I’m extremely surprised in the best way. The tank is looking great after 7 days and I’m really pleased with it. None of the roots in the zoomed photo were there last night.

Looking good!

I may come across as a know-it-all. In reality, I have no idea.

Well the tank seems to be cycled now so I figured I would return to one of my favorite fish for the aquarium, Scarlet Badis. I just have one male and two females.
