Thanks fopr looking!
6 ft 125 gallon
Hydor inline 300w
CO2 powerhead injested
2 x 6 ft Sun Blaze T5 (may add another later playing it by ear)
Mineralized MGOPS capped with flourite original
The plan as of right now:
I am getting a bunch of Limnophila Aramatica for the background, which ill allow to grow about 3/4 of the way up on the left but will trim it down progressively as it moves to the right toward the rock formation. With some Bocopa Japan thrown in for more green along that wall as well.
If you look at the rock formation you will see that there is a small void space behind the 3 tall stones. That will house my focal point plant which will be a large grouping of Echinodorus Urguayensis or Echinodorus Major. I havent decided which. Basically a broad leaf or a narrower one.
The mid and forground along with the far right side will be covered with carpeting plants, DHC, HC and UG (between all the rocks). With a dozen or so cryptos and petite nanas. mixed in.
The driftwood with be covered with Fiss and pellia (IF i can find any that is).
I want ALOT of open space up front for a large school of fish, which ATM, i am leaning toward 30-50 cherry barbs and 12 tiger barbs for contrast. And 6 darters of various kinds and a clean up crew of course.
Thats my plan thus far. But it chances a bit here and there. You know how it goes.
I start my DSM tomorrow.
Sorry about the crappy iphone pics
