so I've been thinking about this lately...got a 75G recently and I've been thinking about making it a winter themed scape..
, i've ordered a bunch of bleached Mitsumata branches, which I intend on using to depict birch trees in the winter. i tried searching for info on Mitsumata wood and really couldn't find hardly any info on it...whether it'll leach, etc. historically, it's been used to make paper in Japan and other parts of Asia..I think it'll be okay. I think they might be too light though, and might have to weigh them down somehow.
, i plan on using pfs for 'snow' - I wonder if i'd be able to bleach it to get it to look more like snow? I'm going to use some eco-complete to make a road going through my forest, and root tab the pfs.
is where i'm really struggling. not much survives in winter...i'm thinking some mosses on some of my seiryu stones which could be used to jut out from the pfs to make a snow bank of sorts...but aside from that, what else? I was thinking maybe some DHG or other form of grass..but that's 1) not very realistic of a snow covered forest and 2) would probably become a real hassle to trim, considering how i'm going to have branches every other inch or so...
- planning on going white koi angelfish
this is the one area I'm set on, lol.
edited to add - no CO2
Thoughts? would like some input.
ps. the 75G...used from craigslist...man, it's a lot more scratched than I thought it'd be...it was delivered along with the stand, eheim 2215, and a single t8 fixture for $200. been thinking about getting a real 'new' 75G before I really start....biggest problem for me is that i don't have a big car to transport a big tank
