Hi guys, I've just started aquascaping and I really love it! I am planning to do a planted aquarium 30/30/30. It's a small cubic tank but I already have a great layout in mind. I'm just waiting for the rest of the materials (wood, soil, stone etc.) to be delivered and I can put them together into a tank. If anyone is interested, I'll post some photos of my aquarium after I've done. BTW, I am still hesitating about which kind of CO2 system should I buy and the size of the bottle. If u guys have any suggestion, plz comment below, thx!

i don’t have fish in yet but I’m thinking about some tetras, maybe cardinal tetra. Cuz I’ll introduce some more colour shrimps so I don’t want them to be threatened by bigger fish

Yesterday after testing the ammonia level in the water, I bought some Darwin shrimps and put them in to clear the algae, if there is any. One or two shrimps were even carrying roe with them. Now they are cleaning the wood inside

Back again with some updates. Saw a crack between two branches of my wood and bought an air plant to put it there. Looks really great. Love it!!!
