Good idea. I think there should be enough room to run the tubes up through the holes on the right side and route them behind the tank to enter it from the left. This seems to make the most sense as I would like to use the holes already present in the shelves.
I ordered my substrate and other goodies from ADG last night.
1x small bag of Aquasoil
1x small bag of Power Sand Special S
1x small bag of Bright Sand.
1x Lily Pipe Mini Inflow
1x Lily Pipe Mini Outflow
And to top it off, some small pieces of Old Black Wood that Jeff Senske threw in for FREE with my order for the hardscape. Thanks Jeff!
I envision the aquascape as having a Bright Sand foreground with a narrow part that goes to the back of the tank dividing it into two planted areas, with one being larger than the other. It follows the sand "river" cutting-through-a-forest set-up that I've seen in a few tanks on the 'net, with the sandy area divided from the Aquasoil by low-growing plants and small stones, and wood covered with moss.
I want to try and use riccia stones, HC and maybe anubias nana "petite" for the foreground, and rotala sp "green" or indica for the background, and maybe some HM. However, I need some suggestions for the midground. Maybe E. tenellus? Blyxa? I've always had trouble with the midground.
