Well, itís been years since Iíve done one of these. I set this little tank up about a year ago with hopes of my first nano shrimp tank, but it ended up on the back burner until recently. I figured since Iím actually putting an effort into it, and itís something quite out of my comfort zone, Iíd make a journal listing here to document my journey.
I tested out multiple hardscapes, I think this was my most difficult decision. Most people liked the wood the most but the single stone really kept my attention so I went with that.
DAY 1: September 11, 2019
Decided on the hardscape, planted with some cuttings I had on hand. DHG and Alternanthera Reineckii. Admittedly planted pretty haphazardly because I thought Iíd lose them all during fill up. Surprisingly they all stayed put minus that one floater. Decided to just leave as is. Iíll add more plants down the line so the scape right now doesnít matter as much.
WEEK 1: September 18, 2019
Surprised to see growth so soon. Iíll probably finalise plant plans here in the next couple weeks so rescaping is in the horizon, but Iím really happy with the hardscape decision. Wood wouldíve been cool but I feel like this has a bit of potential. Itís on my desk and grows on me a little more every day.
