Hi. This was a "normal" planted tank for a long time, with 6 CPDs, my Pygmies, and shrimp. We set up a 55g crypt tank, so I pulled my wendti and rescaped. All the scraggly-looking hairgrass was grown submersed, so it should bounce back quick. The HC showed up as a 4-leaf mushy fragment like 5 months ago, so I nursed it back to health. Isn't really a part of the tank, but I keep it around
The slopes are heavily planted with DHG, just like the "plain" at the bottom. Underneath the "hill" is a mediabag full or ceramic media I had laying around to support the whole thing. Max hill height is about 5.5 inches. Slopes are kept in place with buried plasticard.
Sorry my pictures are horrible.
