    Hey Guys,

    I'm going to give my tank a face lift in the weeks to come :D

    The tank is a 20g 60x40x35 Fluval tank
    • Lighting: 1.5 wpg
      CO2: Nutrafin C02 System
      Substrate: Laterite and gravel
      Temp: 24
      Filter: Fluval +2 internal filter
      Heater: 100w
    I'm going to up the wpg to 2.25 maybe 3.0 add EC and laterite and possibly try a dennerle co2 system

    This is how i'm going to scape the tank (sorry for the bad picture :oops:)

    Red - H. Polysperma
    Orange-P. Gayi
    Yellow-E. Acicularis
    Green- H. Callitrichoides ''Cuba'' If 3.0 wpg then G. Elatinoides
    Blue- Riccia on slate cave
    Brown- Bog Wood

    Not sure, suggestions? :D

    Looks like a plan

    You might find that plan a bid symettrical as far as the orange and red parts go, unless that's what you were aiming for?

    Good Luck,

    Hi Andy,
    Looks like a nice plan. I'll have to plead ignorance regarding "latrine". Isn't that a military term? :? H. Polysperma is great for getting biomass into the tank but IME it soon becomes unruly, if not downright invasive at 3WPG. If you're headed for Las Vegas level lighting, why not take a trip on the wild side - a grove of Alternanthera rineckiii in one red triangle and P (Eustralis). stelleta in the other? 8)
