Hi all ,
This is my corner tank :


I use a 70W hqi + 2*18W (fluo) for the light . I inject CO2 , soon pmdd and there is substrat ( is it the right word? ^^)
I think it's too symetrical so i need your help because i'm going to make som changement this week-end or before ;)
The right side will leave and i'll try to put red plants , the echinodorus in the middle will be taken out and i will make continu the HC foreground to the background.... I don't know if you really understand me :s My english is bad ^_^
What would you suggest me?
Thank you

Wow, that's a nice tank! A terracing-effect from the back corner to the edge of the HC would look amazing, IMHO. Try changing out the Bacopa and the Rotala, they are too wild-looking..use P. stellata and/or Java fern 'narrow-leaf', Ludwigia inclinata 'Cuba' is also a good choice. Can I ask what substrate you use?

The substrate is "deponit mix" with "aquabasis" . I'm not sure that you know this brand i'm living in France so i'm not sure that the same exist in the USA .
What's the complete name of P. stellata? I know eustelaris stellata but not P. stellata. I think your idea is good but it's imply that my filter will be able to be seen ( uhm i can't find the word to say this ) .
If you have other suggest they are welcome!
Cu ;)

Your english is wonderful! Where are you located in France? I spent about 4 months there two years ago, three months in Dijon and one in Paris.
Wow! Your plants are healthy and vibrant.

P. stellata is E. stellata, just a name change...the latter being the old/mistaken name. And I did hear about both of the base ferts you are using, infact I'm very interested in European base ferts (you should try using Hobby Aqualit as a gravel, it's very porous and my plants always seem to attach their roots all over the granules!).

I can see the outlet of the filter nozzle, maybe you could bring lower into your aquarium and then plant all around it leaving just the outlet open.

For the outlet of my filter the problem is that i can't regulate it ( the filter ) . I may try to invent a system to bring it lower.....
Tomorow i garden a little bit :D
