I am going to be starting this thread as my tank journal. Its a 54 gallon tank that is going to be turned into a planted tank using ADA aqua soil and power sand.

Specs:

Ehiem 2215 filter
Coralife 130 watt fixture
ADA aquasoil
Manzanita Driftwood
Pressurized c02

Right now the tank has no plants in it yet and houses some discus and other fish. So my plan is once my driftwood is done soaking i am going to give fish away take all water out and add new soil and hardscape. I am thinking about using HC as my forgound and having other plants entwing with the wood. lmk if you see anything wrond with my plan. I am going to be dosing gregwatson dry ferts.

Heres some pics of how the tank looks now:

I am open to all suggestions and hope that this will turn out to be a sucesful project and not just an algae saturated tank.

Maybe some moss on the driftwood? Riccia, Java Moss, X-Mas moss? I don't know but I would start off with easy plants like Java Moss, Java Fern, etc, then start into more difficult plants. It will really help you a lot by having you learn the basics to the more specifics of a planted tank.
