150 Gallon Aquascape
So in my last post I asked about finding some nice large rocks for this scape. Turns out that my LFS was able to get some awesome dragon stone pieces from his distributor. My initial plan was to do an island style but he also wanted to incorporate some sand into the scape. Then we thought about the fact that this scape had to look nice from at least 3 sides and i also wanted to incorporate a carpet so his clients could see that. I ended up with a plan for a hybrid island/triangular scape that went from upper left down towards lower right. He also got some really amazing spiderwood pieces so I was very excited to work with that.
This is going to be a somewhat high tech tank due to how deep it is so 4 Fluval Plant 3.0, CO2 and liquid ferts. We used a humic substrate that he had in the store and I also did a base layer of Brightwell laterite powder and Fine.
For plants I chose lilaeopsis brasilensis (also wanted to mix in helanthium tennelum but it never came), H. aragauia, Crypt Undulatus red, C petchii, C wendtii bronze and green, Rotala rotundifolia, Ludwigia arcuata, Ludwigia peruensis and Myriophyllum sp Guyana. Nana petite and Buce wavy green are in there as accents and I added some trident Java Fern on the wood. We will also be adding pilo moss on the lower branches and rocks. Eventually I want to add some H. Pinnatifida as accents too but that also did not come in the shipment. I will also be adding some more trident on the left side of scape.
Please let me know what you think.
