    Hello guys,

    I would like to share with you my first journal. I also decided to call for help and because I already make some friends (thanks to this forum) I called Legytt as he his close by amd has much more experience with aquascape then I have.

    Anyway please see below the journal and enjoy,

    Tank:

    Juwel rio 125 - 86x50x36cm (125L)

    Filtration:

    APS 2000l/h via lily pipe set

    Lightning:

    1 x Hagen glo 2 x 25w HO T5 cool white 1 x Juwel stocked light 2 x 29w (will be in use only if necessary)

    CO2:

    1 x Atomizer on inlet of the filter 1 x 70mm Bazooka diffuser opposite the outlet

    Dosing:

    EI

    Flora:

    HC Cuba as carpet
    Pogostemon helferi
    Anubias nana mini
    Hydrocotyle tripartita (sp. Japan) - no longer there has been removed
    Microsorum trident
    Rotala Indica
    Staurogyne sp. repens
    Staurogyne porto vehlo
    Limnophila aromatica
    Spiky moss
    Lobelia Cardinalis
    Lobelia Cardinalis mini
    Weeping moss

    Fauna:

    6 x Otto
    10 x Neon tetras
    6 x Rummy nose tetra
    xxx Amano shrimps

    Before we started with the hardscape I gotta say that drain the tank and remove the Juwel filter was a bit pain in the ass. Like really why do they putting so much silicone there?

    Anyway tank ready for new aquascape.

    As I put the white fablon there like totally noob this has been removed at the end.

    I add links to the pictures for guys who are not able to see the pictures. You do not have to follow the links if you are able to see the pictures :)

    We also had a small disaster as the wood started to float out so we had to weigh it for now :p

    Big thanks to:

    Legytt - thank you mate for all the help looking forward for first cutting together :)

    Karol from CO2art - thank you very much for all the advice and help you provide :)

    Thank you all for looking and stay tuned :)
