pulled it out of the attic and im gonna set it up tomorrow.
lighting: 2 clip on lamps running a 26 w 65k bulb in each
filtration: aquaclear 20 or 30
substrate: eco complete
decor: branchy driftwood
flora: ferns, mosses maybe some stems
fauna: probably a couple amano shrimp, idk about fish yet
my layout plan so far:
FYI: the wood will not just lay on the substrate, there will be a few peices sitting up a little also, i just cant draw that in paint
id like to have a for-ground substrate of pool filter sand, i think the color is fairly natural and i think the sand makes the tank look more natural. im concerned that it will just keep mixing with the eco complete over time and look messy though. anyway to permanently divide it without rocks?
i cant decide what plants to put where. i need something tall and thin for the background (dark green), maybe corkscrew val? someone told me narrow leaf java would be good as a mid-ground (lime green) but im concerned it might get a little too tall. i cant find any info on how tall it will get, any help? on the wood (teal) will either be christmas moss or java moss, depending if i can get my hands on some xmas moss.
should i just screw my plan and go for a huge bush of java fern in the corner and have branches coming out with moss on them?
any comments/suggestions are welcome
