Pirayamans attemp12 inch cube growing nano

So this all started when I tryed keeping prl crs in my dirted 40 gallon and my attempt at keeping paremiters in check all while owning a landscaping company having a 5 yr old son and a bp sons mother.

Yeah didn't go great hahahah

So this 12*12*12 is tiny so I should be able to try this again.

12*12*12 deep blue cube
One shop light round cfl 6500k 13 or 23 watts not sure which one is what I want for light try both and choose
One elite double sponge filter ( eventually getting the Rena xp from the 40 so I can put a bigger one on 40

Oh man after countless attempts at doing this as a project with my 5 year old. I realized that I should just let him think he is helping and sneak back later and actually design something. This pile of rocks in tank is my sons landscape master piece hahahah

I want to do something great in this tank and not have to keep playing with it so taking my sweet old time for sure

Idk man I kind of like it. Might space the rocks out lust a tiny bit more but otherwise I like it. It will look good with some plants that grow between the rocks and flow around them. That hydrocotyle would be awesome in there
