Grassland planted tank
I work for a marine supply place online, and I've never been interested in fish. In fact, since working here, my interests have diminished completely as I've heard so many problems about their tank.
This was saltwater. I've recently seen freshwater tanks, and I must say they are gorgeous, and I've been told MUCH easier to maintain.
Anyway, so now I'm totally excited to get a tank, and I have it all invisioned in my head. The tank will be kept here at work, in that, we can only have up to 12 gallon tanks. I will get a 12 gallon nano, and I want the foreground to have a dense grass field that should consume about 1/2 the tank. In my head I have a pump making the grass wave as if there was a wind. Maybe a tree-like plant in the center of the grass field. In the back, I want something like a rainforest enviroment.
I was looking through the site, and it seems the Dwarf Hairgrass is what I want to go for with the foreground grass. Am I right? A few questions for you guys here:
1) Is it possible?
2) Will this look good? Or will it look like crap?
3) What will I need to get?
4) How much should it cost, do you think?
I don't want a thick bunch of plants in the back, rather, a few that look cool, and hang here and there, like a rainforest-type thing. I figure, if I do the grass in the front, and plant setup in back, I can concentrate on one or the other at any given time if I feel like it.
