Fluval edge 6 gallon hard scape

Hey everyone,
I picked up an older style fluval edge and from local fish group meeting auction and finally set up with some petrified wood. What do you think of hard scape??

I've read about how to upgrade those crappy halogens to better LED and will do so soon if I can find online.

I plan to add some moss, Anubia nana, and crypt parva to complete the scape. Thoughts and suggestions welcome!! Click image for larger version

Love the look of the petrified wood. Can't wait to see this with some plants!!

You'll want to switch out the lights - those Halogen really throw off the heat!!
What kind of livestock are you thinking about?

I love the levels of the petrified wood. The back is a little linear. Try removing the two far right pieces. Move the second farthest to the right in the back, to the left of the piece it is currently to the right of. Take the tall thin piece out that is in the back left as well.

Peace,
Ry

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

Thinking some micro rasboras like glowlight or endlers. I think it could really cool with some small school that have earth tones but the colorful endlers may be good contrast.


Ry - I think once plants come in it won't look as linear. If I take out three of the pieces, it will be too bare IMO. I am trying to make it look like cliffs and won't be adding much plants other than some moss to cover the rocks and patch of Anubia in terraces.
