11G Framless Aquascape - medium tech

After a couple years I finally got back into fish keeping and started an 11gal tank. Countless videos of aquascaping inspired me to do this and took a couple weeks of planning.

The tank is an 11gal aqueon frameless with a glass hood and an aquamaxx light. Will be using liquid CO2 and ferts.

Hardscape is fluval stratum as I plan to keep shrimp. I absolutely love the textures of elephant skin stone and I bought a rather expensive ďtreeĒ at an aquarium convention.

Plants being used are Monte Carlos for the carpet, coral moss for the tree branches, sterogyne repens towards the back of the tank and patches of anubias nana petit around the tank. Iím currently looking for a spot for bucephalandra as I really took a liking of their submerged growth with leaves sporting blues, reds, and purples. Hard to find at my local LFSs and arenít just the ďsp. greenĒ kinds.

Dry start setup is done for now! I can hardly wait to fill this thing!

Thanks! Anyone know how long itíll take for coral moss to stick onto the wood branches? or how long itíll take micranthemum or anubias to start rooting into the substrate/rock? Thanks in advance!

Most of the initial plant melt is gone and tank is now cycled. I really like nano fish so I have stocked some rasboras (and one axelrodi!) and some blue velvet shrimp.
