Very Nice! The rocks serve 2 purposes, 1 for looks and 2 for a retaining wall I like it, kinda reminds me of the beach.

Peace,

I thrust my tridant into the mass of medusa like staghorn. I am wounded but I refuse to take a knee.

I think it looks great! Are you monitoring your pH and KH? If so what are your readings? It does look like the CO2 is not really getting diffused much. You might be able to slow down the bubble rate and still get a good concentration of CO2.

As far as fauna goes, I would recommend some shrimp (cherry shrimp if you have hard water, bee or crystal red shrimp if you have soft). For fish I would recommend some endlers or any of the smaller Rasboras or even some killies!

Just my 2 cents!

My pH should be around 6.5-6.8, it is because I'm using AquaSoil Amazonia.

Thank you for the recommendation, I already put a pair of German Ram though. I am thinking to put a few of Cherry Shrimp too, but not sure whether it is compatible or not. Advice needed. Thank you so much
