What are you going to do with your camera when you get the 7D?
Was great to meet up on Sunday Ed, the tank is top quality and loved the ADA style cabinet too, was a great meet and a great scape to boost
Was great to see it all come together like that, also has given me inspiration to redo my tank once and for all
Look forward to seeing it planted
Hehe i must admit i was considering the hardscape only
But i have the plants already
I am selling it
when are going to plant it?
Plant 500D to grow to 5D Mark II roud: or many of them...
Will plant on Saturday hopefully.
So one week later...
Picked out all grey graded gravels... :lol:
Prepared everything for planting except moss.
Last photo shows more or less completed plan with Balansae, Arcuata and Moss drawn in paint
I am thinking between Balansae and Cyperus helfreri. What do you guys think?
Cyperus might be a bit too light green with everything else being dark.
Want to add something that would sway in the flow. Think it will contribute tank well.
Good job on the graded gravels..
Cyperus helferi is very light, but why not try tall sagitaria instead?
sagitaria will be light too^^
Juncus looks more like a stem
I might plant it temporary though to see if it suits
No to sagitaria
but then dont miss to put ins something like a root barier
No, no valis.
Grows too fast and spreads too much. And looks wrong for this scape
Edis if you are considering juncus you may even give potamogeton gayi a thought..
what about e.vivipare?
Valis nana grows not so fast as other species of valis..
In my opinion planting should not hide the hardscape, especially free back between brunches in the middle.
Thanks all. I will probably stick to Balansae as i have it now.
Will see in the future.
Valissneria looks too soft to me but i probably have not seen nana at all
Yup, Looks nice =)
I think a bunch of Anubias nana petite would look good in the center, and the broader flatter leaves would contrast nicely with the vertical driftwood. Very easy to maintain, too! Hygro "kompact" would also look good, for the same reason.
Balansae will float on the surface for sure, just keep that in mind.
V.nana is looking very nice, still soft but very crisp because its so thin
Isoetes Japonica maybe? Amano never use vallis nana, but isoetes is there in some of his tanks.
