Hi guys

I have been reading this forum for quite sometime now. I have finally got a tank (small because I have limited space) its a Fluval spec 19l. I have also got bog wood, substrate and a co2 system.

I would love to focus on compact ground cover and small plants or moss on and around the bog wood. Shrimps and/or small fish will be great too.

I'm open to any tips or suggestions.

I'll also attempt photos tomorrow for layout etc..

John

I have the same tank. I like your layout's use of vertical space. I think it'll make a great addition to the tank and add some depth once you get the fish in there.

My only issue (and it was one that I too faced), is leaving enough floor space for your scavengers. Whether its shrimp, or pigmy cories (in my case), I think it may be worthwhile leaving as small of a footprint as possible with respect to the driftwood. As such, I think the second, shorter piece should go.

More spec/kit being used:

Heater: Fluval compact aquarium heater (To go inside the filter area)

CO2: AquaGro CO2 Pro set

Soil: Tetraplant Complete Substrate (2cm layer on base of tank)

Substrate: Fluval Stratum for shrimp (layer on top of Tetraplant substrate)

Lighting: Stock light for now, will look into upgrading the lighting

Ground cover plants: Hemianthus Callitrichoides 'Cuba'

Bog wood plants: Star Moss, Spiky Moss

In mates: Possibly starting with Shrimp

Think thats all for now guys, Starting to play with layout.

Any thoughts and suggestions?
