How do I do it?
I have a 125 gallon standard 6' long tank that has older T8 vho lighting in the 6500 range that amounts to about 1.5 to 2 wpg (the bulbs get changed but the lighting is built in so it will remain). It has a combination of gravel and eco complete red as substrate about 2 1/2 inches deep. I have a starter package of assorted low light plants coming including vals, crypts, moss, rotala, etc. I am willing to add to it. I also have 10 pieces of small to medium driftwood to put in. Sounds simple right? Tall plants in the back gradually working forward, open swimming spaces wood tucked here and there. Here is the problem.
This tank has no back. It has 2 fronts. It is a look through tank with walls built around it. The one front is the first thing you see when you enter my house, the other front you see while sitting in my living room. So both sides have to look good. The filter intake and output are on an end.
