17) Ludwigia sp Hybrid (red)

Pretty sure that is all of them.



Thin layer of peat layed down


Second layer some osmocote + a few tabs


Akadama
goes from about 2" in the front too roughly 4" in the back


Got that done last night and realized I wasn't going too end up filling the tank so I took the driftwood out and threw it in the old 20g for the night so the moss and anubias wouldn't dry up and become a crispy critters. Ended up taking the piece of slate off the driftwood and switching the positioning/layout of the driftwood.

Background on, driftwood in, on the stand, filter hooked up

Filling


Planting has begun, but won't get finished up till later tonight I will have planted pics either tonight or tomorrow morning. I promised updates though. I plan on doing some serious planning because I don't want too dig things up with this scape constantly like the last tank, I want it too be setup for good more or less *even though my ADD is like "yeah ooooookay we will see about that" lol* I really do plant on letting it grow, trim, etc. I have some ideas that I need too finalize probably going to actually sketch it out. I would like this too be more polished looking, but still a jungle. Pretty sure that 2 plants will be leaving for sure though and moved too the old 20g on the rack.

I am opting too start a new journal for a few reasons, but mainly this is a new setup and I wanted people too be able too follow the progress more easily instead of looking through 2100+ posts too find the beginning of this tank. This will be another consolidation journal though and I will be posting updates off all my tanks in this journal.

I will tonight, need to plant a ton more plants.

Wow, nice start, Ill be following this one....still :) Whatcha got tied to the driftwood?

Chad,
You posted this in the old thread right before I made this one so I'll just reply in here.

Flame moss and Anubias Nana Petite I didn't feel like tying down new moss and what not, I had too reglue some of the pieces of petite so they weren't buried though because I rearanged the DW and put it on its side.. And flame moss has always grown really well for me in this tank and it's easy to maintain for the most part.

Yeah I don't really have any complaints about the new gravel. Absolutely no cloud when I filled it, easy to plant in.
Nice. Ok, I will shut up now and let you get the pictures.:proud::hihi:
