    My third scape 40g breeder (pic heavy)

    I'm still a newb but thought I'd share the third scape I have ever done. SPECS: 40g breeder, Filtration- Fluval 206, Substrate- Flora Max, Dosing Excel, Going to get a new light this week (currently using the light from my 20g).

    Plants: Foxtail, Christmas Moss, Java Fern, 1/2 Monte Carlo 1/2 Dwarf baby Tears, Dwarf Hairgrass, Anubias nana, Ludwigia.

    Planning stage and initial set up

    My first attempt at dry start. I learned I have very little patience because I only did the dry start for about a week and a half and decided to flood the tank.

    I built the stand/cabinet. It's made out of pallets and reclaimed wood.

    Nice set up. I like the stand you built! You should see the one I built for my 40. Just enough to hold the tank up. No cabinets or drawers. I just hide the equipment (and stand) with a cloth. haha.

    Please don't quote my posts it is unnecessary , I will still read the thread without the extra "you have been quoted on SCAPE" notification email.
