Very funny.
The bar needs to be cut to size. I added the power sand, tourmaline, and bacter but no substrate yet.
Still sinking the wood.

Ok the tank is now partially planted. I did not use the ADA stone cuz I felt it was too small for this tank. This stone has nice texture, color, and proportion. Here are some pics of the build.

Rock placement first. These stone would be nice for and Iwagumi but the would have to be larger. Added the Pfertz root tabs.


Added the driftwood which had been soaking in a tub outside for 2 months and added one final layer of Amazonia to soften the edges around the stone as well as lock the stone and wood in place.


Slow fill with RO water


Aded plants and hooked up CO2, timer, light, and filter. Still need an inline heater, Lily Pipes and a mid ground plant.


Plants include dwarf hairgrass, rotala sp green, rotala walichi, rotala indica, didiplis diandra, star grass and a new plant on the left background. Bolbitis needle leaf java fern, and fissidens on the some of the wood.





Still looking for a mid ground plant. maybe a green crypt, blyxa, or lobelia caedinalis or any suggestion.

I will def have an army of ottos some snowball shrimp, dario dario, and about 30 green neons or 40 to 50 ember tetras.

Very nice. That wood goes really well with those rocks. They both have similar angles.

Thanks I really like the stones too. They are from a local area. A fellow SCAPE member gave me the stones.

I love how the stones are arranged, but TBH the wood could use some work so that it doesn't look so much like a bouquet. JMHO

Good eye CL. I totally agree with you. The wood is not complete. Im still looking for more manzanita that is shorter in order to have it arraged toward the foreground. Thanks everyone for the compliments but it is only 50% finished.
