The tank look stunning in that room Jason.

I never thought that you would have put loaches in that tank. I imagine they love to stay in the rock work..

I am starting a new tank as was debating on my stocking ...I thought of some small loaches for keeping the snails down but am hesitant as they like to dig a lot.

How have they affected the plants in your tank??

The sids were a "gift."  A friend needed a happy home for them and my tank was a good choice.  I really never see them except during feeding time. 

As far as the digging, its not an issue for me.  All the plants are ferns or anubias, so they do not need to be rooted in substrate.   They are firmly growing into the rock or the wood. The sand is in there for decorative purposes only.

This marks the end of this stage of this layout...



In the coming months i am going to replant it with the same hardscape.

Now you have me curious...wondering what the new plant choices will be.

You said stage ..was this layout originally planned to be temporary?
Stage two will be ???

Was it an easier tank to maintain with being mostly ferns ....compared to rooted and stem plants??

That tank is beautiful...

Lizon- It is bolbitis and java fern trident.  With any fern, lower water temps and a good circulation are very helpful to its growth.  With a tank this big it was tough to get circulation....matter of fact, i should probly add another powerhead:)   The convention is in nov...just in time for you to book your plane ticket:)  See you there:)

Belinda - I have no idea what will be next, but it will use the same hardscape. i am thinking of doing 4 layouts with the same hardscape.  I hadnt planned for it to be that way, but im sort of ready for a new look in the tank.  I really loved the ferns and low maintenance factor so i will probly stick with these types of plants for the next stage.  All in all ferns are good because they dont need the constant pruning, but they do get to a sort of critical mass where they need to be thinned.  I am at that point and i figure if im pulling them out to thin them, i should just try a different approach while i am at it;)

Thanks!!

I really like the moss on the rocks and IMHO that Bolbitis on the left should stay just where it is.

you should continue to post on the progress of this tank .
 I know I would like to see what you see next in it.

aaaaahh.  I was wondering if that was the case since you obviously have serious camera skills.
