Hi everyone, so excited to finally join an Australian forum we're everyone understands how expensive everything is lol. anyways after a failed attempt at a 2 gallon shrimp tank I decided to go with a 6 gallon which I plan on aquascaping.

Equipment.

Aquaone horizon 40 tank, 40x23x25cm tank.

Aquaone clear 100 hang on back filter

Desk lamp with 6000k 7w led bulb

Substrate:

Flourite black sand

Black cheap aquarium gravel from Lfs to get height in slopes as $60 for a 7kg back of glorified dirt is expensive.

Hardscape:

Not sure will be going to a petabrn tomorrow about an hour away open to suggestions ( my lfs don't sell plants or any aquascaping material)

Plants

Not sure but currently have access to ( from other tanks)

Rotalia roundifilia

Narrow leaf ludiwigia

Hm-pearlweed

A couple blyxa plants

Random medium sized crypt

Limnophila Aromatica

Crickly leaf java fern

Small Anubis ( leaves range from 10c to 50c size on the plant)

Would love everyone's suggestions on this tank, it will be a slow build as due to Christmas my Flourite won't get here until the new year ( hoping for the 2nd or 3rd but who knows with Aus post)

Got some seiryu stone and goldenvone today from pet barn. I have done a few different layouts. Any opinions would be awesome

Scape 3 - possible my favourite so far, might cut up another piece of driftwood and use it as roots coming out of the rocks.
