Default 75g rimless, new journal for a new scape :)

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

Cool project. I like some of the driftwood arrangements that were bunched together like the 3rd pic down. Any pics of the fish?

Thanks, they have been doing good so far eating really well being fairly active and exploring the tank. They're most definitely not shy. Their colors will look a whole lot better as they mature, but from what I hear they are very slow growers.

Ya I have a group. Take a long time to grow 2+ years for something looking like an adult. Mine spawned around 1.5 years...I think. Just a guess though could be longer. The red heads also took long but my group seemed overly shy from the beginning. Are yours wild caught?

I don't know if they are wild caught or not to be honest. Mine are not shy at all

That driftwood looks very nice. Can I ask where you found it?
