Hello to all, this is my first post on the forum!
i have finally got to where i feel enough has been done in my reef aquarium and now wanted to invest in a nice planted aquarium. i got started in fish keeping with a 20 gallon guppy tank that i have now planted, but its not satisfying to me, i now want a fully aquascaped, amazing freshwater tank.
On black friday i got a 30 gallon half moon (that is semi-cylinder) and ordered two dual lamp 20'' fixtures from aquatic life. Because of the odd shape of the tank, i decided to hang the fixture as opposed to set it on the frame mounts.
For the substrate, i went with a mixture of eco-plant substrate and black flourite sand.
For now i am going to use a DIY Co2 system as well as some flourish root tabs and the liquid flourish stuff.
As for plants, i plan on planting a carpet of Dwarf Hairgrass as well as others such has ludwigia, wisteria, a ruffled sword, myrio.. etc.
I also plan on documenting the early life of the tank by shooting a time-lapse over an 8 week period, so i will share once that time has come and passed.
