So...
Retired my 30L Dwarf Pass
Replaced it with 60L tank


Did not much of work on scape. Just crammed in 2 big rocks and tree
The plan relays more on the Dwarf grass growing thick and form
main look of the scape cutting it when I will get there


Tech side:
Capacity: 60L
Light: 2x28w T5 with reflectors & DIY rails
Spinning on JBL 1501e + Co2


Plants:
Dwarf grass, Anubias nana

Live stock:
1 pair of Gouramins and 6 Dwarf spotted danios (Danio nigrofasciatus)










I am planted!

I like this scape a lot. Nice and simple, will look very good when the carpet forms!

Any info on the diy rails? Would like to know what you used and how you made?

Cheers!

Thanks!

I wouldn't call it as a carpet through. My plan is to get this grass as tall as possible. In my imagination
it looks pretty cool, but it may take another 5-6 months to get there as Dwarf grass does not grow as fast
as I would love to. My target is that on the back it will reach about 15-20CM and front and middle ground 5-10cm

With this current it should flow and form nicely.


about the lights.

So I have just arcadia ballast carrying 2x28w T5s'
x2 Juwel reflectors and for rails I managed to get slat wall hooks

Everything else was just a small job with pliers and force to get the right angles.
To be honest - these hooks were just in place for this project and they
did save me a lot without trying to overshopisticate something ugly
or bloody expensive

I am planted!

THANK you Kev for such a lovely pair of Betta PK
They perfectly fit in my little community tank. Love them!









I have a plan to replace this one with Fuval 46L. Looks like I'm gonna plant
that one only with different sorts of anubias. Betta pair will feel much happier
Adopted this pair of Kevin and as they came from litle community tank I love
the fact male do not bother about other fish. Just playing around with his female

I am planted!

Beautiful looking tank and even more beautiful looking fish :cool:

Is it just me or does Two Stones Of Rock sound like a great title for an AC/DC album :whistle:

The Anubias nana really is spreading. That's some nice growth right there.

The tank is looking great. The fish too.
