Here we go, official round two!
Planted this yesterday, hope you like! Just a note, I'll be filling in the back with a wall of Eleocharis vivipara on friday. For those who don't know, it's a very delicate looking grass plant that can grow essentially as long as you let it. I'll be letting it drape over the top to give the anubias some shade.
Running a mere 3 hour photoperiod to start. Trying out Green Bacter and Bacter 100 to help the cycle, lets see if it works. The filter is essentially cycled already, as it came from a fully cycled tank. I'm hoping the cycle won't last longer than a week or so, but you can never say for sure with ADA AS.
I just want to give a HUGE thanks to Glenn McCreedy, he's a mod here by the name of Gmccreedy. He provided me with nearly all the plants necessary to plant this tank and I really think he deserves some credit
On to the photos, there's lots, with more to come on friday (setup shots were taken with my phone, final shots were taken with my camera)
Here's a lil ADA swagger, nothin much

Hope you enjoyed! Will be updating on friday with the background actually filled in. I hate posting this with an empty background, but I couldn't help myself
