Starting this thread to Journal my 2nd tank. It's a Roma 240 with an FX6 filter I picked up off of gumtree.
I'm using alfragrog to bulk up the base, which I am going to sprinkle with osmacote and then cap with kayadama baked clay bonsai soil to hold onto the nutrients and sand over the top. I plan for the rocky area to the left to be most heavily planted, with wood pieces on white sand with epiphytes to the right.
I'm still playing with the hardscape on this one, I was toying with the cave yesterday but decided that the pieces of rainbow slate I had used to make this were too beautiful to hide under the substrate.
So I'm going to redo this section using a buried terracotta pot for the cave with the rainbow slate to the front.
Unfortunately, I'm gonna need more rainbow slate so it's on order and the build is on hold until then. Hopefully it will arrive by the weekend so I can spend some time getting it right.
