I am new to the high tech planted aquariums. I just tore this one down because of algae. I tried my hand at an Iwugami-esque scape. Everything HC and DHG grew in nice and thick but found the layout pretty boring. The algae didn't help. Did everything I could to get to rid the algae. Got tired of it and tore it down.
Fluval Spec V
20" Finnex Planted+
Flourite Black Sand
Will be dosing GLA PPS-Pro, 4.5 grams of Osmocote+ under substrate, will be adding DIY root tabs as necessary.
10lbs pressurized with dual regulator and solenoid.
Alternanthera reineckii 'Mini'
Eleocharis Belem (Dwarf Hair Grass Belem)
The plan so far is
Here is the hardscape that I think i have decided on:
Water is a little cloudy from flooding it. I didnt rinse the substrate.
Headed out today to pick up some plants. Not sure on the plant list yet. There's a great LFS in Seattle that specializes in planted tanks. I do want some red for sure. Probably AR mini coming down the two slopes. Maybe some Blyxa around the base of the DW. There will be moss( not sure which kind ) on the DW. Would like the moss to attach and kind of droop down toward the bottom.
