Various driftwood, a couple little rock work caves and a few live plants.
Substrate is a mix of smooth river gravel and pool sand.



1 Cleithracara maronii - Keyhole cichlid.

Hmmmmm... Here are some questions for our experienced aquatic gardeners.

With the low lighting and current substrate, which plants would likely do well?
I'd like a tall background plant like Vallisneria, or similar.

Anacharis looks nice, may have to try some.
