    Extra filtration never bad, i put a bag of seachem purigen (thanks @amakwa) in one of the compartment and keep my water crystal clear.

    Btw, the Pfs will level out with time, i used it in my big tank does the job but you wont getvthat "hilly" look for too long.

    The fish in that tank shouldnt move the PFS around too much so you can alos put smaller stones around the 'hills'.. should keep the hills in place?

    Alternatevly add a stingray.. you will have a different scape of hills every day.:):):):)... Just joking but true..

    Hi Guys

    So first phase is complete. I added some real plants. And even though I dnt have the right substrate. The plants seem to come alive after a couple days. Those plants with her red leaves, was all curled up and low. After a day they straightened up. You will also see new shoots/roots after 4 days now. In just going to add root tabs. And call it a day for now.

    Also I only know the name of two plants there. The jungle val and the Amazon sword. Could you guys identify the others. Dnt worry about the 2 plastic plants. Until get more val, I used it to just cover the back for now.20190119_135045-01.jpeg

    If that is mondo grass - keep an eye on it, since it is not aquatic and will foul the water. Nice development .. for PFS you can always add some root tabs.

    Later Ferdie
