422 planted tank
 
Hi All,
Sharing my first attemp on 422 tank, will decomm my other tank after transfering the plant into this tank. Here's the first FTS with driftwoods tied with spiky, jave moss and coral pelia. Hope to complete the scape this weekends :)

APP, blyxa japonica, red tiger lotus, bolbitis at the right, some crypto, nana 'petite'. Might need to add more background plant.

Think you can improve with a bit more foreground plants either planted in soil or on rocks with some background plants to complete the aquascaping. Overall, gd effort!

Some rocks can help to further beautify the scape

I think once your blyxas bloom up, the left side will look very green green loh. Nice! Does Blyxa need high lighting to do well.

yup, that's the plan, it will be playground for the fishes :)
blyxa need mid to high light + co2 n fert to do well, low light it will 'float' but give more 3D view for the scape, u can see my other thread, blyxa at the back looked taller. because it float...

not really bro. i used to keep blyxa in low tech tank, 2plus WPG with no CO2, they grow really well.

Potential scape. Good job. Simple scape but look natural. It would be great when mature. Looking forward;)
