I have an ADA 60-P (24in x 12in x 14in) that I will be setting up soon. I call it a pre journal because this is behind the scenes, I'll post pic of the stand my dad is building too. It will be an Iwagumi mountain layout. I would like to have larger plants in the front against the glass to give it perspective. If you have the ADA book I want to imitate the first scape. I don’t know what plants in the large clump of plants or the smaller foreground plants. In the “valley” behind the rocks I would have dwarf riccia with a bit of HC and dwarf hair grass. Any plants to go in the fore ground would be helpful.

Tech Specs:
Eheim 2213 (should have got 2215)
Pressurized Co2
Nova extreme 2 x 24w T5 HO suspended about 1 foot above tank
Fertz:
KNO3
KH2PO4
Plantex CSM +B
Ultimate GH Booster (macro)


And so it begins...





I don't like the new logo, I wish I got the other one more timeless





Here are the photos of my scape (sorry for the towels)
Large clumps of plants in foreground. I don’t know for midground maybe HC. Background, behind the ridge riccia, HC, haigrass mix like this pic.




Close-ups on the rocks (seiryu stone)

Any plant suggestions would help sorry for not having pictures of the large plants against the glass.

Thanks!

I think this should be in the tank journal area but im sure if you notify a mod they will move it for you no problem.

I love 60-p's I have one and feel free to check it out in my sig.

I have a 2217 on mine and am extremely happy with it. You could get a 2215 impeller and put it in the 2213 to boost flow but you might want to see how the 2213 works out for you.

Well I am not ready to set it up and I like my scape I just need help with plants. I only posted the pics to let people get a better idea of what to work with. I could remove the photos if you think I should. Oh and thanks for the offer.
I dont care just trying to point you in the right direction. It may also get more feedback in the proper location.

what kind of plants were you thinking? stem plants? or something like a sword or crypt? or what?

you could do hairgrass that isnt trimmed so short
Probably sword like plants.
Here is my plant list so far:
Riccia
Dwarf Hairgrass
HC
Dwarf Sag
I think I need about 6 more plants. I will have an example of what I am looking for once I finish my homework.
