Filter will be an AquaClear HOB (I think I have either a 20 or 30 still packed up in my garage... gotta get out there this weekend and dig it out.)
Substrate will be the same Flourite black mix I've been using for years.
I've ordered some Manzanita pieces to play around with, and hope to run by a local rockyard sometime this week and pick up some small granite or slate pieces.
I have a rough visual of how I want the scape to turn out, but I'm going to experiment a bit with everything to see what I like best.
The plants I'll have so far to play around with are:
Echinodorus angustifolia 'vesuvius,'
Anubias nana (may be in there temporarily till I pick up some A. nana 'petite')
Needle leaf Java fern
Hemianthus micanthamoides (dwarf Baby Tears)
Carpet will definitely be Lilaeopsis mauritiana.
I keep being sorely tempted by some of the newer Anubias on the market these days. Almost bought some Stardust last night, but it's just so ridiculously expensive! And I haven't researched yet to see if it keeps the yellow coloration even under low light/no CO2.
I'm still considering some small Crypts. I haven't seen anyone selling C. wendtii 'green gecko' in a while, but that's one of my faves, so I'll likely snag some if I run across it soon. C. lutea is another strong contender, just because it stays smaller. Might even add some C. parva if there's any gaps between rocks.
Haven't finalized my stocking plans yet, either, but likely will be dwarf shrimp and dwarf rasporas. If I don't go the Dario Dario route... we'll see.
I did snag a half dozen Tangerine Shrimp at my last TBAS meeting auction ($6!!!) that be the first residents:
