New Aquascape, Updated Aquascape…

March 1st, 2011

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted my Mini-S aquascape. I’m pretty happy with how it’s turning out, although I can’t decide whether to let the Blyxa japonica grow tall like it is, or to keep it shoved down behind the rock more. Suggestions on that? I also added some livestock in the form of Phoenix Rasboras, Orange-Eyed Blue Tiger Shrimp, and a few horned Nerite snails.

A couple weekends ago I found some time to rescape my 50G aquarium. I’m not entirely thrilled with it in its current state, but I’m hoping that the plants will grow in a bit, and minimize the size of those rocks a little bit. I was also hoping that my plecos wouldn’t dig, but that seems to have been wishful thinking.

At least it’s looking way better than it did prior to my rescape. In case you’re curious, I’m trying to do a themed series of aquascapes in my fishroom, using the pool filter sand, and fairly minimalistic look. Now I just need to keep this and my 33G going while I find time to rescape my 75G!

    Where did you get the white rocks from? The ones in the 50G?

    Arlene, those are the same rocks that Ghazanfar has in his 90-P from Dave’s neighborhood.

    They look great! Just realized their posted to Flickr… time to look at your gallery. I’m a SW guy now getting into FW planted tanks. Started a 5-gallon EcoPico a week or so ago.

    Awesome hear that you’re getting into planted aquariums, Jeffry! The EcoPico looks nice — good luck!
