    Hi,
    i have been working on that set up for the last 6 weaks.

    What do you think of that start? a nice background will be a must but I'me still not sure about the color. also, at tha back (left side) plants will have to grow to follow the same shape the rocks have.

    here are some info about the tank:

    CO2: 1bubble /sec. waiting for a ph drop checker
    2X65W (10h/day)
    size: 25 gallon
    substrat: flourite
    PH: way to low (about 5.5). I tried to make it higher but did not succede yet
    KH: 4 to 5
    NO3 I add 5ppm every 2 days
    PO4 I add 0.5 ppm every 2 days
    Fe and trace: 0.25ppm every other days
    Water change: 50% every week

    No fish in this tank for the moment.

    I had some green hair algae the last weaks and also there is a little spot with cyano but it does not get worst or beter.... it's just there. I dont freak with algae for the moment. once I'll have my ph set to 30ppm, I'll see what happen.

    any idea of how I could make it nicer?

    Not bad, not bad at all. I'll just warn that you might have not given quite enough space to the stem plants-- in which case they might end up a bit cramped and hard to make into well developed bushes.

    yeah, I tried less substrat at the front. there is about 3/4 inches at the front and more at the back. plants behind the rock are planted in flower pot so they have more substrat than it apear.
