I love the driftwood.

Did you glue it onto a piece of stone? I'm thinking of doing that for one of my tanks.

Thanks! Nope, it's just propped up on top of it. Not sure the best way to keep it there to be honest. I'm thinking of wrapping it in some fishing line but still not sure.

Some plant sinkers on the ends might work. Easy enough to test in a bucket.

"Smell of shrimp, they're beginning to boil . . ." Guess the heater needs replaced again (with apologies to Jimmy Buffett from a die hard parrothead)

sweet driftwood. i recommend sloping up to it the back right corner. this will hide the base of the driftwood and create a more natural look. it also creates the illusion that you only have one main piece.

That really is some beautiful driftwood!

I agree with amphirion about the slope.

There's no doubt in my mind that this will turn out very well. It just looks like one of those professional builds.

Oh I don't know about that one. Just going to try a few things and hope it turns out well.

It's tricky to see but there is a slope in there but I haven't really taken a good photo of it. The bottom grass photo shows it best

Looking good, Mum. I've noticed that belem grows pretty quickly submersed in CO2-enriched tanks, so that one week DSM you've got planned might be just perfect.

What are the other plants that you have planned for this scape?

Also, what is that beneath your substrate? It appears to be a riser of some sort.

Thanks mate! Yeah I'm thinking the same thing.

I've got two types of tiny fissidens on the way along with some mini pellia, R. Green, R. Colorata, bylxa, hydrocotyle japan, and buce brownie ghost. That should get me started but I'm not sure how I'm going to lay it all out. I've got about 3 days to figure it out.

And are you referring to the ADA garden mat below the tank? There's nothing in the tank itself.

Well that DSM was the shortest I've heard of lol.




My fissidens arrived (thanks Jimko!) and were drying out too much so I flooded her!

24 hours later:
ammonia - 5ppm
nitrite - 0ppm
nitrate - 5ppm

Planning on 50% daily changes for the next couple weeks. Rest of the plants are coming tomorrow
