Some photos taken last tuesday.
Wow, I can't believe I haven't seen this tank before! Love it.
Excelent as always Alexandre looking better than ever
I think maybe there's too many little rocks just dotted about on the sand? Also, I find the right most peice of wood distracting because it kind of sticks out from the clump of plants.
Looks great Alexandre, nice tank.
Just a question/s if I may. What are you using to light the tank? is it a 150w metal halide? how long is the photoperiod and what bulb do you use?? Can you tell us what plants you are using in this layout?
Thanks Thomas McMillan & LondonDragon .
I don't know if there is too many rocks around. I think it is more there positions, a bit to symmetric. At some point the HC will have grow and cover a good part of them. But you are correct, there is some thing not right. Will have a look today and see what I can do.
About the wood, the extreme right or the fat one who stick out the water?
The photoperiod is 8h for the moment.
2x Giesemann Midday T5 - 24W
2x Arcadia T5 Plant Pro - 24W
Some of the plants I used will become a bit to big, so I will have re dove some of it at some point.
Rotala Sp. Green
Anubias Barteri var. nana
Not the thick one - the one on the extreme right.
I will see about that one once the tennelus will have grow in front of it. But it is a good point,it is only one branch so I can remove it easily or replace it by a shorter one.
Here are some photos after the first trim. On the first one I removed the big stone in the wood. I think it is better less heavy. The other one have a couple of stones removed from the beach, still not that.
Your critics are more than welcome.
looks fantastic, is that bga on the sand?
That looks amazing. Really inspiring me for my own 80cm tank which I'm hoping to re-scape in the next month or so
Looks much better without the stones. I'm sure that branch will look fine once it's grown in a little more.
Thanks, It look like it. It did show up in 24h, that's the gap between the first and second photo. Since yesterday I got back to my old dosing regime.
Yes it does, thanks to you. I am thinking to remove the small one on the left to.
^ Yeah, I think that would be good. It's a bit too out of place at the moment.
