    This is my 1st tank so its my 1st time learning to aquascape , and ive seen alot of pictures done a little bit of research and i find that aquascaping gives the aquarium a more natural look whereas now my tank looks like a kiddy tank with just deco and no plants .

    The dimension of my tank is 40cmx25cmx26cm ( 26L ) .

    Currently having a HOB filter and a HOB lamp ( 6700k fluorescent lamp 14 watt )

    Having mini pebbles as gravel right now and will soon change to soil gravel ( the ones that looked like gravel but will break into soil once squeezed )

    Housing 2 platys right now .

    I want my tank to have a dark look so that from afar the fish will shine brighter . And i will appreciate if you guys could gimme some tips and give me some examples of a layout . Im planning to use maybe java moss , anubias , java fern , dwarf hairgrass , hornwort , cacomba .

    The only problem i have is my light , i dont think i have enough wattage for some plants so I need to knw whether i have enough or not and I could get fluorish excel if its really needed .

    I just want a peaceful looking tank maybe plants at the side and some space in the middle but i dont want the sides to be very crowded i want some space for my fish to swim around and explore + release stress .

    So far i thought of an idea

    like this for the middle i'll put 2 rocks like an upside down V so it looks like a tall cave and put some dwarf hairgrass / java moss around it . and maybe have a side fill with jungle vals and anubias and the other side with some hornwort .

    You guys could help me to fill in some ideas too thanks ~~
