After marvelling over the works of Takashi Amano and many others on the internet, I've start my own planted tank. This is my first planted tank and for the venture, I've decided to try the iwagumi layout. I've always admired planted tanks but the iwagumi layout has been most captivating for me. I'm on a student budget so I'm trying to make as nice of a looking tank as possible without breaking my wallet. As such, you can probably expect the photos to be taken with a camera phone . Now, a list of my tank components: Tank: 20 gallon long (30"x12"x12") Lighting: 1 AquaMedic 24w T5 Plant Grow, 1 Current USA 24w 10,000k T5, 1 20w Hagen Aqua Glo; approximately 3.4wpg total Substrate: 100% Flourite Black Sand CO2: DIY CO2 Injection Fertilizer: API Leaf Zone once every 2 weeks (looking into getting ADA fertilizer once I can afford to spend a little more ) The plan for the layout of the rocks. The white stuff on the bottom of the tank is styrofoam. Added the substrate and mounded it best as I could. Any input/critique is appreciated so give me your best shot ! Also, I'm planning on putting dwarf hairgrass around the rocks and HC in the middle and along the front, basically where there's more open areas. As far as fish goes, I'll prob be going with a shoal of rasbora heteromorpha and perhaps some crystal red shrimps or amano shrimps.
