here is my latest journal with quite a few pics of the initial setup is it an aquaone 320 (32l) iv had it for a while but never done a scape in it.
the lighting is the standard 11w but ill be putting another 11w unit in the hood at some point.
the co2 system will be my hydor advanced system with a daz diffuser.
the filter is currently a small internal but will be a small external when i buy one.
heater is the standard 55w aquaone which came with the tank
fertilisation will come from the tropica substrate (thanks tom) and also from tpn+ mix
planting will be rotala rondfolia at the back with crypt wendetii, Micranthemum Micranthemoides and Micranthemum Umbrosum in the midground and dwarf hairgrass and Utricularia Graminifolia in the foreground
heres the initial setup:

Re: my ????? scape

looks good, hardscape is a start, but imo it needs something with a bit of hight, maybe a piece of wood or some branches..

i was thinking the same when looking at the pics but it looks kinda different in real life and i might put a piece of redmoor in if i find the rite piece.
