New update, an hour and half of cleaning and tank with basic gear (except heater forgot that) is in place. I am still uncertain where to put filter. I tend to front due to better water circulation and filtration that way. Light looks dim, but in person it looks much better than on my Sony
As always I would like to see some suggestions.
Since now as I saw, parasitic light outside of tank is minimal to my eye, I decided against tank hood, so only glass cover will be made .
Btw, how do you like my centerpiece wood? I am totaly happy that I found it. Few amano type rocks and Monte carlo carpet and my tank will be awsome. Can't wait.
Scape idea will be arround wood on that place ...on sloope with one smaller gray rock on right side and "alley" made from natural sand most likely or some material like that. I admit I just love Amano scapes where he gets awsome depth perspective via that underwater path.
I read also that it is good idea that carpet plant with slightly bigger leaves should be planted in front row of tank and Cuba (or monte carlo) in mid and back area aswell so depth perspectuve will be even better. Arround wood I have plan ver 1 or 2..depends on plants I will be able to buy when I finalize my tank. Most likely some plant that grows up to 20 cm ( aquarium is 28) and maybe 2-3 more types of small plants max. I dont plan to have more that 3-4 types of plants inside to avoid messy look. I guess real challenge will be to fit all that in 6 gallon tank and make it grow.
Co2 just got 2nd option (besides easy carbo ) by the way. Guy in shop told me that they will get CO2 set that should be cheap and based on gel that lasts about one month. THat sounds solid, but only if I can hook it via my digital timer with light, so I dont kill fishies in future.
Anyway...nuff of me babling, I will keep you posted as always...
hmmm...maybe mossy tree would be better idea that big plant....beter perspective..
Next step is making list of plants and make sure that they will work together. Thank god that nowsays I have app my my cellhhone with all dana lol..I wish that I had that 20 years ago .
