I will look around for some complimentary driftwood..haven't seen anything just yet.
I spent a bit of today looking for suitable plants.. none of my LFS have any decent looking plants right now so I went with some of petsmart's plants that come in the little baggy with grow goo. I went with some bacopa and put that all along the back. It still looks pretty boring to me.. I think I might add something with some color.
I also switched out my filter. I've always gone with a sponge in my tank for the plants (and the price!) But because of this tanks length I figured it would be best to get something with a bit more power. I picked up Aqueon's QuietFlow internal power filter. It is pretty slim so I don't think it'll be too much of an eye sore... not much worse than the sponge! I took out the cartridge it came with and stuffed the sponge from my sponge filter in and turned the flow all the way down to it's lowest.
Here's an update.. still cloudy water.
I'll try to get the camera out tonight for a nicer pic.
Also, I do have some giant duckweed growing as a floater.. there's only like 15 plants in there for now, but it is duckweed so it should fill in soon!
I will be adding a black background.. and btw, I don't really like the substrate but I'm not gonna bother changing it. I had black in the 2.3 and tried to mix in some grey to lighten it up but it just looks like salt n pepper now.. oh well.
