I got bored of my previous tank and am doing a full rescape.

Here it was like before:



NEW:

I'm hoping the plants will grow healthy and fill in the gaps so I can then sculpt and rearrange.

Aye the lotuses are the best part of the tank so far. The other sections have too many gaps and need quit a bit of growth.

I have 2x 36watt T5 on it. 3 bulbs are 6700k 1 is a "daylight" bulb. I like the mix of the daylight and 6700k better than pure 6700k. Might swap out one more 6700k for a daylight.

CO2 is Hagen yeast mixes. I want to setup a full (with ph monitor) GLA system later when I have spare funds to put into the aquarium.

I'll add some midground plants in the empty spaces. Probably something very green since the rest are kinda reddish and orangish. Any recommendation on any such plants? Something that will preferably not grow tall and is kinda bushy?

I'll be out of the country for a month after next sunday with no one left to tend to the tank. I'm going to take before and after pictures of the impending disaster :)

You just basically described HM. Perfect plant for those requirements, and exactly what I'll be using in my 20-long for the same reasons. ;)
