Hello all, I'm about to start my new tank well if it is finished in one of the next two weeks or so, this will be my fist attempt to scape. The dimensons are 130x50x50cm, for filtration got me Oase biomaster 600 with thermo and will be using a Sera flore 500 reactor pressurized CO2. Lightning will be 2x Aqua medic Qube 50 maybe 3 if the spread is not sufficient enough but I will figure that out when my tank is here. For the substrate I got Ebi gold and sand for the front side. Stones are grey mountain or also known as elephant skin to some. At first i got myself a manzanita branch wich is pretty hard to get here in europe at least in the NL so i bought it second hand from a guy who wanted to make a lamp out of it.. Here is a photo : So this dimension definitely would not fit my tank with out a saw well after some thought a chopped the thing. Now i was waiting on the stones and it took more then two weeks to arrive but finally this is this is what i came up with : In the front there will be some french river sand in the back the will be ebi gold. I got a list of plant i already got an will get in this tank. Bucephalandra 'Mini coin black' Bucephalandra 'Deep Purple' Bucephalandra 'Medusa' Bucephalandra 'Mini black velvet' Bucephalandra 'Biblis' Bucephalandra 'Blue Green' Bucephalandra 'Brown (red mini)’ Bolbitis heudelotii Microsorum pteropus trident Riccardia chamedryfolia Fissidens fontanus Vesicularia montagnei (Christmas) Others plants i really want to add no matter what Micranthemum monte carlo Hygrophila pinnatifida Anubias nana pangolino Bolbitis heteroclita difformis There are some things I can't get a grip on from what really would fit, that are stem plants! I got Rotala sp green and Ludwigia mini red which I really like. Maybe there are some that have an thought on this?! The rest is kinda low medium light but I just fall in love with ferns and buce's.. I wanted wi try out some crypts too i never had these. I hope that the will be great input from all of you and I will keep you posted on the whole thing.
