NA style scape - unnamed

Postby zico_aqua » Tue Jul 28, 2015 7:58 am

Hi All,

It's been ages that I was a regular in the forum especially after extreme level of increased work pressure and my marriage but in a way I was missing my tanks as well after I shifted to my new house. In a way I really wanted to get back to the aquarium so wanted to do something little bigger than nano's that I always have done (as some of you might know). So without further delay let me present you all with my latest tank (had many tanks before but finally planned to maintain one planted tank and a biotopish build due to severe shortage of time). Details have been furnished below -

Tank size - 30X18X15 inch
Soil - Base layer (caribsea eco complete), top layer (contro soil 2mm)
Filtration - 2XSunsun HOB 302 (1000LPH)
LIght - 2X36W 7000K PLL+1X36W 6500 PLL custom build acrylic hood
Decor - Wood (collected from personal trips+bought some), Rocks (Collected from trips), sand (Yet to be added)
Plants - yet to decide since tank is -presently in cycling stage
Ferts - DIY EI (once planting is done)
Stand - Iron stand covered with wooden cabinet pieces stuck via magnet to give the clean look at the same time not create issues with stand strength integrity.
Fauna - not decided yet

PFA the hardscape of the tank presently under cycling - planting to be done in the next 2-3 weeks. BTW - Wood pieces are now submerged completely and big rocks holding them down are now taken out :)

Like always - comments/critics are welcome

the top right rock has already been taken out ;) it was given for the wood to have a wight over it and assist it in sinking ;) check out the black and white pic that's the actual scape any additional rock you see is part of assistance to sink the wood which as of this week have all been taken out :)

nice one. ready to be a stunner.
BTW, the magnet method of covering the stand is very interesting. Can you give a pic of how big the panels are and the kind of magnet that has been used. Also a peek at the finished product would be great.
