3ft fully planted

Now this will not be speedy, i have a few other projects on the go, so not expecting this to fly ahead any time soon

Tank: 3'x18"x18"
Capacity: 190litre or 50gal (approx)
Lighting: 4x 39W T5HO
Filtration: Internal (Canister eventually)
Substrate: DIY mix
Heating: 300W
Decor: Wood, Rocks, Live plants
CO2: Yes DIY
Fertz: Trace, Flourish and Excel
Stock: Tiger Barbs, RTBS & some algae type eater

This is very much a work in progress, heaps more plants to be added over time (as i get my hands on them)



*Java fern will not be staying

I like the flow of this aquascape. Nice driftwood. The placement of the rocks and wood is very nice.

What are you going to replace the java with? Pennywort or moneywort would be a thought.

Keep us posted.

Update time

FTS


The foreground weed needs trimming again lol The giant cardamine will also require trimming and replanting....

I will be ordering some more plants and goodies for the tank tomorrow, and they should arrive early next week

Looks nice. Are you going to do the baby tears (or pearl weed) long than do dwarf hairgrass in the the front?

Oh cool. I have another idea, you obviously dont have to listen to it. But you could do the hairgrass on the parameter, like a white sand beach (how it it only on the border). Than do a thick layer of pearl weed right behind it. Just an idea i thought of .

Look cool either way

I like the weed that is front of the rocks though, extremely fast growing so i can fill in the foreground quite quickly....means i will need to trim often to keep it short, but i like the look of it. There will be hairgrass that will grow through it also i imagine
