    Planted tank, remodeling overall look

    29 gallons, Eclipse 3 filtration hood, 2 inches substrate.

    I've had the tank since May now and have added the large piece of wood and replaced some plants in the last couple days. I have rummy-nose and cardinal tetras, a rainbow shark, and kuhli loaches. I love the large piece of wood because it is actually concave upwards underneath and forms a cave with multiple openings (couldn't catch that in a pic though).

    I'm in the process of removing the (volcano?) rock and replacing it with wood. I'm also going to look into smaller substrate. I plan on buying a larger tank in January and really want to aquascape that, so this may become a holding/growing tank for me.

    It looks great! Changing its look can be very fun and challenging :) But why will you be changing the volcano rock? It looks nice. :D

    thanks aquarist. I'd rather have driftwood instead of volcano rock because I'm going for a tropical river effect and there aren't a lot of rough/volcano rocks in tropical rivers.

    That's a very nice looking tank. I think driftwood would be a great addition! :) If you want to try different rocks, I once got some smooth river rocks from a garden center and they were very inexpensive. It was a nice look for my tank.

    Your crypt spiralis (one of my favorite plants!) can be removed from the pot carefully. You can gently pull off the fuzzy stuff from the roots and plant the roots in the substrate... you'll be surprised how much the root system can grow when it is out of the pot and able to spread. :)

    i took out two potted plants and their roots were halfway across the tank, i haven't moved the spiralis though
