Photo Caption:You can see how I tried to prop up the substrate higher in the back using the rock and also some old blue colored plastic binder. The swords help to hold the soil in place now. Here you can get an idea the stem plants that I planted in the back for background as well as how I tried to create a natural slope from front to back.
Description: I have a 20 gallon rectangular tank with a hang on the back filter, CO2 diffuser and LED light strips. There is an automatic feeder that dumps blood worms mixed with some granular food twice a day. I was trying to create a nature/jungle style of aquarium.
Advice: Try, experiment, learn what works and practice regular water changes
About Yourself: I used to have a 30 gallon coral reef tank in Califothis but upon moving to India, coral was no longer an option. I started my first planted tank and love it. It has been just as rewarding for me as keeping coral.
