8 Gallon Aquascape (Dutch)

New journal time, after recent trials with different stem plants I put in an order, grabbed a bargain Eheim 2213 as the internal was bugging me, hasn't arrived yet, grabbed some fine grain Florabase and got planting. Still needs to change from emersed to submerged on some of the stems and I need to be patient and let it fill in a bit before the ritual hacking back every few days starts.

Tank - Arcadia ARC 35
Heater - 50W hidden internal
Filter - Eheim 2213
Lighting - Custom LED 15W
Substrate - Florabase brown fine grain
Stock - 2 x German Blue Rams, 1 male, 1 female

Plant list -
Limnophila Aromatica
Rotala Wallichii
Rotala Indica
Rotala Rotundifolia
Nesaea Crassicaulis
Hygrophila sp. Araguaia
Proserpinaca Paulustris 'Cuba'
Hemianthus Micranthemoides
Pogostemon Erectus
Pogostemon Helferi
Bacopa Australis
Blyxa Japonica
Juncus Repens
Sagittaria Subulata
