had to do some testing for the water/ground area.
i used hydroballs to get the ground above the water and used some bigger rocks to divide the 2 areas. it seems to work really good, so im considering doing it like this.
so the layering will be something like hydroballs>fleece>substrate>moss/plants/leaves but not sure what to use as substrate yet. gona have to do some researching, any tips are welcome
the idea is also to make the ground sloping towards the back wall but i have to rip everything out again anyways when the ph is down and do the final build.
oh and ph is down to about 8.9ph (peak was about 11:O)
