75g rimless, a new journal for a new journey.

Hey everyone,

I have decided to take my tank in a new direction. Rather than get into the why, I wanted to share the new game plan for my tank.

Fish:
Geophagus tapajos (7)

Plants:
Anubias nana
Needle leaf java fern
Bolbitis heudelotii

The hardscape:
Spider wood
Granite rocks
Pool filter sand

I started playing around with different layouts with the driftwood and would love some opinions.
Picking up the rest of the plants tomorrow morning. Trying to waterlog the wood (its not the actual placement), plants are just thrown in for now too.

Fish are young but they are doing incredible so far.

Thanks for following

Lol, that's not the scape

It's just in there to get waterlogged.

I will be properly scaping everything once they are.

Haha!! 🤓 I should take time to read stuff. I'm sure the scape is going to look great. Many possibilities!

I like photo #2 and photo #12 the best. I think those offer the best effect to the eye, at least for my eyes.

2, 3, 4, or 5 seem to look the best to me.

So the wood is mostly waterlogged minus the one piece on the left (almost there).

I decided on a layout of wood that I liked, and tied on all the needle leaf fern. The anubias and bolbitis have been placed but not tied it. I may move some plants around as time goes on.

As for my rocks, I am having a hard time placing them within this scape. I am hoping for some advice.

Thinking of using large rocks up front and smaller ones in the back. Still trying to create more depth in the tank.

Here is a picture

Looks really good. IMO some rocks would also look good on the right by the driftwood, but that's just me. Looks good nonetheless!
