Hey everyone, been a while since I posted and have been slowly working on a new build. Initially I was making this for my trio of blackfoot terribilis, but now I am shifting focus since my fiance can't stand their call (I will sadly probably move them on).
I am leaning toward a group of Southerns for this tank but would be open to suggestions for other species to consider.
Also would love some feedback on my plant placement and plant suggestions. I ordered a mystery pack and not well versed in plants so I don't know if I placed some in the wrong locations for their long term growth. Anways, here we go, pictures with comments.
Skip straight to the bottom for the planted picture. Will add more as i add new plants.
