    Default New tank

    Hey guys got my 2nd tank this hobby is very addictive
    i got my self a star-fire 60x40x40

    im in the process of scaping it atm need some in put about the scape,

    current i use:

    Substrate - cals aqua labs prenium black earth and la plate sand
    driftwood - bonsai tree - mixture of Seiryu rock and bunning rock.


    Planning to use monte carlo to carpet the black sand part
    and some long stems plant at the bacl to cover up ( any susgestion ) ?

    i do have co2 but have never use it before so its gonna take awhile for me to set it up and learn.

    Have hang on filter x2 or 1 with an extra sponge filter inside.



    where should i put the tree? ... so hard lol
    shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried.

    Haha lovely stuff.

    I would use the tree like you used in the 1st picture at the back like its part of your drift wood. Ie move to the right.

    Yeah go for it. My suggestion is to keep the bottom sand. If you change your mind, you add the soil later but cant take it out.

    Love the ripped up earth look.

    The tree is well done. Perhaps it could go back right, make it part of the wall.

    My favourite so far is this one


    I think it's really unique.

    Get help from Dantrasy as he is a master.
