Here's my new hardscape. I'm looking for plant suggestions.
I'm pretty set on using rotala rotundofolia, Rotala H'ra in the background. With some Proserpinaca palustris in the middle to break the color with another tint. I might be missing some green though?
Otherwise, I'm stuck with...
I'm actually planning the hardscape of my 2020 contest tank, as Always my beloved 60p.
Rocks: seiryu stones
Soil material: la plata Sand, Aqua gravel
This will be an mixed style tank, jungly in the foreground and more NA style in the background...
Hey everyone, here is my new 60p I have just set up. I have always been inspired by the classic nature aquarium style and have been collecting materials for a concave layout for a few months now. Managed to get some good deals on second hand ADA equipment for almost the full setup too.
Finally got time to redo the tank after moving to a new place.
Will have to figure out plants, but got a rough idea what to get.
Really looking forward to see this develop.
1x Marsilea hirsuta 1-2-GROW
2x Hydrocotyle tripartita 1-2-GROW
3x Hygrophila pinnatifida...
I have been away from the hobby for a number of years, after a moving house, as it just wasn’t suitable to set up my old tank, so reluctantly had to get rid of my old tank and all own old equipment.
Following a recent change in my personal life, I needed to do something that...
So I haven't done a whole lot of rock work in the past.
needless to say this stuff is a lot harder than it looks, and the amount of soil used to create the slopes is surprising to me as well, even though i tried to use lava rock as a filler.
So this is what I got done today:
This being my...
Beginner aquascaper here and I'm looking for any advice tips on starting my first scape. Here in Georgia we have a lot of sloped hills with this plant called kudzu with exposed rock and that's what I'm gaining some of my inspirations from. I have an idea of what I want but not on how to exactly...
6 Months after taking down my first scape we're finally settled in our new house, so it's time to start again. This is a bit of a blank canvas, built with only a vague idea in my head, we'll see how we go with it!
Tank - ADA 60P
Stand - DIY ADA-ish style
CO2 - DIY set-up with 2kg fire...
I have only recently discovered Aquascaping so this is my first tank, although my parents did keep fish some ~15 years ago. I started this tank a few months ago, but spent along time trying to decide on the hardscape.
Equipment I current have is underlined, everything else is still to buy...
I'm looking for a bit of advice concerning my ada 60-p. Currently I have a mountain scape using seiryu stones with a lush carpet of micranthemum monte carlo. The micranthemum covers the entire bottom of the tank but my scape is lacking a bit of height. So, I decided to purchase some...
After my last scape "3 stones" i am now starting a new thread for my next scape.
It is made with kei stones and spider wood.
I wanted a v shape layout this time and also wanted to include white sand in front.
I am at this moment in de hardscape stage and refining the layout.
I will post...
I've got two TMC MiniLED 400 tiles mounted about 2 inches above the surface of my ADA 60P.
I'm running a high-tech setup with pressurised Co2, dosing EI ferts etc. I've got good circulation and the drop checker is a lime green - yellow (no fauna yet).
I seem to get reasonable results...
As some of you may be aware, I posted a few threads on here when I was struggling with my first scape. It was an interpet fish box with an amalgamation of all sorts of remedies to try and get it something like some of the stunning scapes featured on here. I received some invaluable advice from...
