OK, well a few changes here. This tank is less than a month old. As I mentioned earlier, I decided to put the big Manzanita root in my 90 gallon. But I had a big piece left over which ended up in this tank. I had to cut it in two pieces last night to make it work. I also added a rock with riccia on it.
The idea (which is a work in progress) is to make some sort of a series of terraces out of the mini riccia. The riccia on the far right will eventually be lower and the far left piece on the rock will be taller than it is now. I'll probably just put more substrate under the rock to raise it up a couple of inches, or a piece of slate. Then I'm going to hide the rock with some very short plant, although my son wants to see
the rock! Maybe I'll use the Rotalla mini I got from Craig to hide it. Its just about the right height and likes this tank. Or maybe with some bogwood so I don't loose the green accent on top.
Most of the plants will change, except for the riccia, moss on bogwood, wendlov fern, Crypt balansae, and the Anubias. I'm going to find a compact sword and some other easy green plant as this is going to be a mid light easy to keep tank. I'm not sure what other plants to put in here, but the Ludwegias (brevipes and repens) are going to go. And that E. stellata is just temporary, recovering from a iron/trace overdose. BTW, that white spot on the riccia infront of the Anubia is one of those stainless steel weights. I just put in the two pieces of Riccia on the left last night.
Here's what it looked like 10 days ago before last night's changes... I had basically just thrown everything in there.
