Hardscape on my new 29

Just set it up today :) Will be adding Hygrophila Stricta, Hygrophila corymbosa 'angustifolia', Wisteria, and Java Ferns. Don't know yet, any other plant suggestions? I feel like that might not be enough.



Tank will obviously move soon, just starting the cycle now :) A week or two head start is awesome.

Substrate is mixed (aprox 50/50) traditional gravel and Flourite by Seachem plant substrate.

Maybe some foreground? Like drawf sagittaria? (Sorry if you have some in that list, I didn't recognize all of the plants ^^; ) I like the set up, it looks great!

I was going to use Java Fern in the foreground. But I'll look into getting some of that as well :)

Java fern can grow a bit too tall for foreground IMO ^^;; but it might just work! I have a 2.5 gallon tank in which my java ferns refuse to get any taller for some reason... they've stayed green and about 2 1/2 inches tall for the past 5 months or so. Goodluck! =]

To be honest I would try to add more substrate so you can have it sloped from the back, it will add more depth into your hardscape, it looks a bit flat in more ways than one :I...

I'd THOUGHT about adding sand on top (I must be insane I hate sand) But the stuff here is so expensive, I wasn't sure if I wanted to do that. We shall see if there's any sales.

You can get pool filter sand. It is about 6 dollars for 50 pounds

What's the difference between pool and play sands? Any opinions on which is preferred?
