Plants are complicated, here we go
Starting this tank journal here to track the progress and show off my first attempt at a heavy planted tank. I've had plants before but nothing plant focused or Hi-Tech, so here goes the experiment
-20G Long with an ugly black rim
-Aqueon 30 HOB filter (Already had it, will eventually upgrade to canister)
-Pressurized C02 paintball setup. (Already had 2 tanks, cheapest option)
-Finnex Planted+ 24/7
-Stand is an Ikea Kallax style
Substrate: EcoComplete, 1.7 bags approximately. Much larger granule size than expected, scooped off the largest gravel pieces for use in my 10 gallon.
Flora: On order from AquariumPlants.com are a mat of Dwarf Hairgrass, S. Repens, and some Ambulia (which apparently is a weed and will take over my tank....probably should've researched more)
Fauna: Not even thinking about it yet besides some Nerite Snails.
Here's a *rough* first attempt at a hardscape. I'd like to change this quite a bit before planting to get rid of the flat, boring look.
Feel Free to give feedback, comment, recommend anything different.
