For a while Iíve been thinking about starting a new tank but have been putting it off. Till I found this piece of wood.
I am now starting a tank designed around it. I think it has a ton of character. You can see rocks that the wood grew around.
So right now I have it soaking to try and water log it. My question is about the plant selection. I have a bow front tank Iíll be using and I want it somewhat heavily planted.
I donít want the plants to detract from the wood. Since the wood will take up the majority of the middle ground what would you suggest for the back and foreground?
It will be have a dirt substrate, capped with river pebbles. No CO2. I havenít picked out a light yet.
I was thinking something to grow in the crevices of the would could provide some interest. Iím also wanted some dense tall background plants. A type of Val perhaps?
Final question is where do you order your plants from? My lfs barely carries anything anymore because ďno one does live plantsĒ.
Itís frustrating to have to go the mail order route with not knowing which places have quality plants.
