Introduction & Overhang/perches
This is my first post on the planted tank. Thank you for sharing on this site. I have enjoyed looking at your photos and guidance in other threads. In grade school and middle school I kept fish and really enjoyed it (before all this information was readily available on the internet). I am getting back into the hobby. My goals are to have a fish tank I enjoy watching and some nice plants to compliment it.
Tank: 20 G Tall - currently cycling
Substrate: Black Flora max
Lights:15 W Cheap florescent came in aquarium package.
Plants: a tall anubias & Java Fern
Ferts: Micro + liquid CO2 booster
I plan on getting 6+ cory catfish and some yet to be determined fish.
Since I am going to have 6+ bottom dwellers I'm looking for strategies to creatively increase the amount of "bottom space" of the tank. My thoughts are maybe construct some type of shelving systems like floating shelving ("float" from a vertical wall not lighter than water). I'm not sure how to do this and make it look natural. I'm looking for suggestion and examples on how to do this and if my cory's would even enjoy perch themselves on platforms and overhangs.
