210 gallon Amazon theme suggestions
My 210g has been up and running since November, but I've only had enough lighting to barely support anubias until now. I just purchase a MH/T5HO fixture and am ready to put my planted tank plans into action.
I am planning on doing an Amazon theme to go along with my South American cichlids. I'd like to do a variety of swords, anubias and hairgrass. I'd also like to work in some mangrove, but I need to find a way to make it look good sticking out of the tank. I've got some interesting driftwood to work with, but it may be too much. I like "branchier" driftwood but have trouble finding it. The existing wood has lots of places to tuck some anubias.
The tank is 72"x24"x29" and I have a sand substrate. No CO2 for now, but that will probably be the next investment.
Any ideas? Anything else you'd recommend that would go with the theme? Any specific types of swords/anubias?
Does anyone have any pics of some great Amazon tanks?
Here is the tank as it looks now:
