    Hi all,

    The last weekend, I have built a new layout for a 64L tank in my livingroom, here are some pics during process:

    Tank ( 60x30x37H), the 2.4kg dennerle deponit box, gift from my friend (first time with this kind of substrate)

    Inside:

    Do you have dennerle in vietnam? very interesting... believe me: it's a very good substrate. I would say that after ADA Aqua Soil, the Dennerle soils are the best.

    The layout looks very interesting ... waiting for more pictures

    @crstn: we don't have Dennerle branch in Vietnam, my friends send it to me from Germany. I know that this substrate is very good for red stem plant.
    @Roy: I combine 4 piece to build this layout.

    Some more pics right after finishing plants arrangement

    Tank is looking good. I like that wood in there. Can't wait to see how it fills in.

    Lots of potential with this scape. It's already turning out very nicely. I'm not so keen on the front most rock. It feels too big, and my focus goes directly to it. I'm not sure if that's the goal or not. Maybe when the plants grow in, it will be more hidden.

    Very nice scape, can't wait to see what it looks like after the plants fill in.

    Or you could just move it around. Like maybe move it around the base of the DW and bury it a little and see how it looks.
