so i tried out the 60f sometime ago and while its great for certain things, I learned that it didn't have the height I wanted to really get a good tank going. I succeeded in getting the 60f going in an iwagumi style but after some neglect and my whole HC bed floating to the top, i decied i wanted to try again.

so ill try and keep this journal up to document my progress and to see what you all think and what i should do should i encounter any problems.

a bunch of plants from fellow TPT members that are going to be arriving this week. ill list them when they get here.

so i remember last time, i always rushed the scape and never really let it sit to see if i REALLY liked it. that was the first issue i had with the 60f. even after planting, a few weeks later id tear it down to redo it.

my yorkie not caring for the wood at all

and my first try with scaping and wood

I would slope the substrate much more it gives more planting surface and makes the tank seem farther front to back and utilize the height of the tank better. Also think about breaking and zip tying a few of the pieces you have together to make a thicker branching area.
Agreed, i like it sloped to the back as well. Gerat start tho :D
