Yes, there is a large variety of plants but I assure you it will be narrowed down to 5-6 background plances when all is said and done. Partly, I am deciding what would look best and partly, I am getting some plants ready to send out to Edward so he can photograph them for the Plant Finder.Phil Edwards said:
It looks like you've got a little bit of a lot of plants in the 10g, we'll have to wait a little while to see how they turn out.
Would you believe I am actually using a total of six different branches of driftwood in this layout? All the pieces are independently adjustable. I will be doing a little adjusting tonight.I'm assuming that it's actually one large piece of wood and the front branch can't be placed separately. It's a little too far forward, but the shape compliments the middle branches just right.
The greenness is a result of being quite young. There is Rotala wallichii and Rotala rotundifolia in that tank. I am actually going to do some major readjustments tonight. I am just not content with the layout. Going to be something along similar lines, but much less maintenance in the midground to foreground areas (Marsilea, Anubias nana 'Narrow', etc).he 5g is cute, but that riccia ball in the middle doesn't need to be there. Unless you keep it trimmed super super short it looks like it's going to overgrow and obscure the Anubias. Good choice of plants for that tank, the fine texture of the leaves is perfect for the small tank. Is that green or red Cabomba? Some C. furcata would look really hot against that overall green-ness of the tank.
I swapped them out to a 6700k/10,000k Sunpaq combo bulb. The lighting is very nice indeed and actually warmer than the Coral life 6500k bulbs.m3th0d said:
Very nice. Are you using the 10,000K/460nm Actinic bulb that came with it? Or did you swap them out...
It isn't fully filled in yet. Still a little bit more to go (2-4 weeks). Plants need to grow out AND color up. Foreground needs to be denser.That thing really filled in nicely! Good luck keeping up on the pruning.
If only this little tank were bigger. The foreground is only about 0.5" wide, an 1" at most.Also if it is possible at all ... A few dark, maybe grey, rocks in the foreground may enhance this great (small) aquascape.
The zoomed mini canitser is MUCH better than any nano HOB filter. The zoomed mini creates clear water without any turbulence. It is excellent for the 10g or smaller aquarium. I use it also on my 5g where it creates the perfect amount of current. I got my 5g cube from a friend in Los Angeles who shipped it to me when it became available at his LFS.is that filter, the zoomed better than an aquaclear? and whered you get that 5 g cube? whats your dosing routine?
Noname, there is already a background -- and it is white posterboard. I do not want to use a black background. The 5g has also had its background replace with a white one. I far prefer it to black.I really like how it looks rather like how a field would look and though the plants appear blended some the groups still stand out. Praps a background would be nice.
BTW, are those wee stripey things Ep. annulatus?
