After several years away from planted aquaria with several moves around the country we have settled back into our home state of Texas. This build will be a low-moderate tech 125. I finally have the tank and am waiting for a grocery list-worth of upgrades and replacements, but here's what I have so far (ignore the plant-species on the garage floor chalk...I am just roughing in some height and color concepts for now):
The glass needed some TLC but is cleaned and ready
The lights will be replaced with twin Finnex FugeRay Planted Plus 36" fixtures
The kids helped with a concept sketch
My "artisitic" garage floor chalk outline to see how the driftwood will line up
Substrate is ready and waiting for some 8" bowls that will house some Crypt.retro.
