    Hi Guys, just started on this new scape, spent a few weeks sourcing rocks from LFS and fellow hobbist from AQ. Wanted a very high slope at the back for better perspective and also to make use of the ample 45cm depth.

    I used crates to achieve the height i wanted. LECA clay as base, 2 box of dennerle deponit mix for fert and then ADA soil powder to cap it off. Now waiting for stainless steel in out pipe to arrive from taobao.

    Appreciate any comments guys!

    Thanks! I decided to go for the one without skimmer because it looks neater. Also i already had a separate eheim skimmer from previous tank, this way it gives me the option of taking the skimmer out of the tank whenever i want to.

    Looks very nice and simple. Are you using CO2?

    Hi bro, yes im running it at 10bps to prevent plants from melting, will slowly decrease to 6bps until the roots are established. I also realised the far left corner is not getting co2, will have to add more pumps to get better flow.

    Hi bro, i have two 3 litre cylinder, 1 on standby when the other runs out. Intense solenoid regulator and intense bazooka diffuser. CO2 on 24hrs, from my experience keeps the PH stable and helps new plants settle in

    This weekend need to do some trimming to hydropiper to achieve a more even carpet. Rather slow carpeting plant IMO

    Woah, nice scape bro! Must have missed your journal.

    Don't worry about the shrimplets, some will get eaten which is unavoidable. But with so many hiding place in your tank I'll say most will be able to survive to adulthood.
