Latest Tank: New 20 Gallon
Hi there folks, im Troy M...James, you may remember me from such journals as 'James' 10 gallon Nano Tank' and.. well thats all iv done really
Anyhow, iv started this journal as im completely re-doing my 20 Gallon. I have a ton of plants, a few fish but absolutley appauling gravel and no real sense of aquascaping in the current setup.
I plan to completely take out all fake things out of the tank (the random log thing and a couple small plastic plants) and just completely change the look and structure of the tank.
Here's a pic for today. This is how it looks now. I hate the gravel! Plus iv just been on holiday and i bunged everything in before hand and just left it so its abit jungle styled.
Sorry for the bad lighting but you can see it there. Bad, bad gravel, red myros, java fern, hairgrass floating at the top (yet to be planted), amazon frogbit, hygrophilia polysperma, you name it - it's probably there..
However, i have A PLAN!!
Here it is..
horray! another bad picture. If you squint you might be able to make it all out
Basically its all plants with a set of rocks in the middle and a piece of driftwood on either side. At this moment in time, i have the rocks done and one piece of driftwood. Check it out..
I have annotated it a little and its well worth squinting to read it..
and the nice piece of wood..
The idea with this piece is, i built up plants around the wood to make it look like the tree trunk carries all the way up the corner of the tank, and out of the water.
Thats all for now, il pot my work in progress as soon as i buy the gravel and final piece of wood. Peace out..
