Hey everyone. It's been another long break between posting due to school and work. A new project has come up since my friend Tom has donated his 30 gallon long tank to me.
Originally I had thought about making a pure iwagumi layout (already have the stones) but with the 30 gallon he also included all his plants. One plant that caught my eye was his bunch of Java Fern. His bundle of java fern is in really good shape and looks really sharp. So sharp that it has made me re think a layout and now im stuck and trying to decide between a panoramic iwagumi layout in a 30 gallon long or... a jungle-like java fern layout with the rocks I already have acting as a base with driftwood and moss working with the scape.
30 Gallon Tank (long)
-T5HO lighting (double bulb)
-Fluorite substrate (sand/and normal)
-Hydor Inline Heater
-Filters (I have these and must decide among them) :
Eheim Ecco Classic
Eheim Ecco Pro 3
Plants to choose from:
-Java fern Narrow
-Anubias nana petite
-Cryptocoryne Wendtii "Mi Oya"
I have an Algae Army that moves from tank to tank But need to decide on a main Schooling fish.
Either a slender bodied fish if going the Iwagumi way
A mid bodied fish if going the jungle-route
Suggestions? Please let me know I need help deciding
again its a 30 gallon Long
Panoramic Iwagumi vs. Layered Jungle Scape
