Hi there!

This setup is done 3 weeks ago, but the plants are reused from another setup that had about a year.

Here is a picture of the setup at one week distance.

The wood is darker now and Im thinking to cover it with some moss.
I also need to trim the rotala to make it bushy.
Please let me know your feedback.

What kind of water changes do you do. I have a 29 gallon just set up with a few plants and aC02 system.
1 dennison barb
2 brass tetras
1 bleeding heart tetra
2 clown loach
1 rubber lip algae eater
1 buenos aires tetra
3 zebra danios

I had to downsize from a 70 gallon bow front which had some damage and potential leaking
