thank you. the rocks are large for this size tank however in reality they are actually not huge. i haven't seen any tanks use a rock arrangement like this before so i am excited about how it might turn out. If it doesn't end up looking good with plants i can always remove some. This was only my first try at arranging them so im welcome to any ideas anyone might have to make it look better.
To answer your question it is my camera that is making the table look concave, its straight as an arrow.
Thank you very much, what a pleasant way to be welcomed to the forum. let me know if you have any ideas on planting it, at the moment i am thinking alot of moss and maybe some hair grass at the back or possibly just a few ferns sticking out of the cracks between the rocks. Im still up in the air about plants. I want to keep it simple though. Im only running two 24W philips energy saver bulbs which are 6500k. Im hoping this will work. But i can buy a proper aquarium pendent if i need to.
For fish i think i will have about 7 or so rummy nose tetras plus algae eaters. I also really like glass cats and i think they would look great against the dark rocks however i think they will get too big for this setup. i don't have a large filter on this tank so i need to keep my fish load light.
Thank you for your concern. No need to worry though i have that covered. The bulkheads both have extensions on them and the intake has a grate over the extension. I'll snap a pic for you later to show you how i've done it. The last pic was taken before i had put them on, as i was just testing the plumbing.
Thanks mate. They are larger than usual but its always fun to do something a bit different. let me know if you have any advice for me it terms of planting, fish selection, or changes to the hardscape etc.
I have one bag of flourite black sand in there at the moment. I'll probably need two more bags to finish it off.
