    You are off to a strong start. This aquascape will be a stunner when you are done. Are you going to use Co2 injection later?

    The stones are ready. Of course, there is someone who participates in everything that is happening in the backyard.

    This is the whole process of the formation of hardscape.
    First, the growing medium of peat , clay and some other nutrients. Then I threw osmokot . Then I threw the zeolite, and then it all covered kvarcbin sand. And, after you have finished the hardscape.

    Hey, just looking at the empty tank and the contrasting brick wall and white wall.. You would benefit from a black screen for the back ground.

    I plan to install the backlight with light monochrome background , because hardscape loses effect with dark background.

    Many Aquascape presentations have been ruined by what is behind the tank.

    I agree. At the last aquarium I had a black stretch wrap , and I saw that it was a problem, because you can not change the wallpaper . Now preparing a light background that is slightly offset from the glass, and will be illuminated by dim light .
