Well sinc its a new project in progress why not start a journal about it.. Tank will be 90x35x35 cm open top Low tech Low light Filtration Hang on filters planted. External DIY Fish 5 goldfish ? Hara Jerdoni ? Plants Java ferns Bucephalandra's Anubias Mosses ? Floaters ? ??? Here is the stand, not yet tataly finished.. But couldn't help myself already playing a bit with the layout.. It is Ardennes Black marbled Rock. Substrate will be black as well, probable fine rounded grave or heavy sand. I had some like this in my mind. in the cracks of the rock will be anubias and or bucephalandras, bolbitis and mosses.. Still have some smaller rocks in the propagator tank already grwon with moss, will be added later.. In the right back corner i piece of Manzanita root and a large Java fern. and some smaller epiphytes. Looking from above i created some potholes for substrate planting, this is a must with goldfish because they are bulldozers it prevents them from diggin the plants out.. The back will be banked up pretty high and slooping down to the right and planted, will need some smaller rocks to cuver most of the top to prevent diggin. Left corner maybe some Val and or elodea?? And in the pockets in from of the large stone will also be planted with some grassy plants. Further small carpeting can't be done, not with goldfish.. So maybe some smaller pieces of planted root or rocks?? But they need playground to dig. So forground will not be planted in substrate.. I was thinking of placing the stones in the back a bit higher on tempex sheet to create some emersed growth with cyprus grass or some like that. What do you think? Thanks..
