Yep, dude.. we're going identical.. I'm going to use some cardinal lobelia to create a palm tree affect in the back as well. Focal will def. be dhg caressing the seiryu though.. green on gray is going to look awesome. Any idea of sieryu is less algae prone than say lace or any rock for that matter??
Edit- just looked at the pic a second time, I'm not a huge fan of perfectly centered Hardscape. To pre-determined..( i.wouldnt recommend actually doing this) I like the idea of the rocks kind of looking like they landed there..

Yeah, I tried to copy a video on YouTube, "the green Machine 5 stone layout". The dirt was mounded in the middle, but the primary stone was tilted. With a 10 gallon, room is scarce, but if this Aquasoil performs according to all the hype...I can see a 60P in my future. Now to wait and let the plants root.

edit: the newly planted DHG is pearling. Lol. Good sign I guess,

Ammonia = 0
PH = 6.9

I'm new to planted tanks, no I don't really know, do we need such a deep layer of substrate?

The next tank I want to aquascape is about that size and with that much substrate plus water, would be waaaay to heavy.

Just wanting to learn.

Stole it from the 10 gallon that I am either tearing down or converting into a quarantine tank. I haven't bought fish in a long time because mine usually stay healthy.
