20g long dusted's tank

Hello, This is my 20g long that has changed quite a bit over the last 5 or so months. It used to be fake silk plants and some hornwort.

Fish
10 - neon tetras
4 - emerald corys

food - flakes,shrimp pellets and bloodworms.

Plants
hornwort
java fern
java moss
anubias nana
ludwigia repens
random bulb plant
micro-swords
corkscrew val


substrate - 1" of Dirt and capped with 1" of carib-sea peace river
light - upgraded to a DIY 2x24 DIY hood
filter - aqua-tech 20/40
Co2 - DIY co2

This is the first cup of rusty colored clay/dirt that I tossed in.


In the process of adding the top soil on top of the rusty colored dirt/clay.


The gravel is in and about to add the saved water from the tear down.


A little cloudy from adding plants.

Could you not put the rock behind the wood? Then it wouldn't look so out of place. Very nice looking tank though. Would love to see more pictures with a FTS and some more info.

Just because its dirt doesn't make it low tech.

The log sinks on its own so the rock is out now. The tank is going to be redone this month with dirt and will post some pics. I don't think I'll be adding anymore hardscape now since the one log takes up quite a bit of room. TonyTrout I didn't want to put it behind the log because I was worried it would tip and hit the glass.

Awesome job buddy, looking really good. The placement for everything looks perfect. Love that big piece of wood also. You should still be able to see it once the tank fills out. I think that the wood in a tank is a work of art and should be displayed. Lots of people on here cover their wood up and you cant even tell there is any in there. Will take alot of covering to hide that one. Good job.
