I decided I have to many tanks and am starting a new 24g long to consolidate 4-5 other shrimp tanks

After hours of driftwood layouts (stolen from other tanks) I finally settled on the new layout.

So far I massacred glosso from the love shack chi tank and planted plugs to get the dry start rolling




I'm still undecided of that else I will add for plants. But we shall see

I may go with anubias petite around the top back of driftwood. I have some Blyxa japonica that I may use on the upper right. Hmm any other suggestions?

Whoa looks awesome! Definitely keep it Iwagumi :)
That curved glass is sexy!

How about Hydrocotyle Tripartia to have it sweep through the middle of the wood pieces?

I think i may even have some Hydrocotyle Tripartia( i think.. looks like floating mini lilly pads?) in my big tank.. ill throw a chunk into another tank for possible future use :)

Do you think Blyxa japonica or anubias petite or pogostemon helferi would go with the scape?

2nd plant is B. Japonica. You'll easily find some good pics on Hydrocotyle Tripartia on Google. That plant creeps better than H. Sibthorpioides.

I really love what you did with the wood (wink wink nudge nudge).
Seriously, though, looks great! Can't wait to see all the little shrimp rooting through in there.

Hooray! I've waiting for pictures! I think you may have set a record for longest DSM ever! It looks fantastic so far. I think all your tanks look fantastic! You ready for that pogostemon helferi yet?

Why thank you! I would love some if you have excess :). It would be perfect in the back right third of the tank! :)

Haha forced dry start due to renos and a stand I didn't trust to hold it filled
