omg i hope i dont screw it up ADA 60p

1850 13
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.

equipment:
ADA 60p
Finnex RAY II
CO2
Eheim 2215 w/2217 impeller

layout:
ADA Power Sand
ADA Aqua Soil
ADA Aqua Soil Fine
Tom Barr's selection of manzanita wood
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

the only reason why i am not going with a slope is im going for a dutch type scape so i feel the slope would be wasted since the bag would be full of tall stemmed plants anyway. i do think ill be redoing the driftwood though since a traditional dutch scape doesnt use wood.

but who wants to follow wat everyone else does anyway right? =D

thinking of this layout because plants are coming in tomorrow so wanted to try something else.

also might order another finnex light like the planted + in addition with my ray 2 for help with the red plants.

btw, i wish i had another camera other then a cellphone but its currently in the hands of someone else :angryfire

bunch of new images using a point and shoot camera this time.

attaching some moss to the wood. my cousin and i were like, how much do we use to tie it down?


i think we were getting tired of planting and i had so many plants that all we did was alternate who picked a plant and who was doing the planting. i think it came out nice with its randomness


water all cleared up and looking pretty good imo

yea she gets jealous when i go out there an have a smoke and dont bring her outside lol.

i think that red plant is Alternanthera Reinekii. i seriously ordered so many plants that my cousin's tank has alot of leftovers still. i also won a RAOK for ADA riccia stones that i wanna add in there somewhere. maybe once the driftwood settles and i can remove those rocks.
