New corner tank

90 gallon corner tank. With two Kessil amazon suns.

Iím waiting to see if the dwarf hairgrass will outcompete the lilleaopsis in the front.

Iím still waiting on my new regulator, so for now dosing excel, with Nilocg fertilizer.

Almost two weeks later, CO2 going for the last week, and now new fish. Trout goodeid (Illyodon furcidens) and Xiphophorus mayae swordtails, and julie Cory cats.

I really like the pentagram (for lack of a better description) corner tanks. Looks like it is growing in nicely. I noticed what looks like a distinct darker layer beneath your sand. Are you doing a earth base capped with sand?

No, you may be seeing some algae, leftover from the cichlids set up, or the black rim and black stand.

But yes, I love the pentagon shape of this one

11 days later, Rotala growing in well, the Hygro is spreading rather than growing taller, and the hydrocotle japan looks like it will outcompete the hair grass and lilleaopsis as a cover foreground plant.
