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.
