Hi. I thought someone would post by now! I broke mine down or would gladly post.

Are you looking for inspiration to start your own or just want to see what other people have done.

Here's mine! Its dirted but i put a perimeter of sand around the edge of the tank so the dirt is not visible. I thought it would look better this way but now I am kind of sad I cant see the dirt! It has a heater and an LED light though so Im not sure if thats exactly walsted? also need to re-arrage, the stick to the right of the rock doesn't look great there IMO and the java moss is a bit out of control!

It's not really Walstad but you've got a nice tank!

Have you checked out Foo the Flowerhorn on Youtube for more inspiration? What are you planning to keep in your Walstad? Hope you'll feel like doing a set up journal-they're great tanks.

Not that you asked...

I mineralized dirt cheap top soil (takes forever and is messy, but doable). Went to a clay retailer and got powdered red clay. The toughest part I found was finding an appropriately sized gravel that I didn't hate.

Thanks! Is it not walstad because of the heater and light?

I don't know a whole bunch about it to be honest! Id love to learn more, I was just trying to do dirted & low tech. It is in a nano tank that is designed to have a built in filter in the back compartment but Ive never used it.

Yes I have seen a few of his videos! That is where my inspiration came from but I did deviate with the heater
