    I think a low tech setup is going to suite this tank. I would get a big piece of wood the height of that tank and tie java ferns, moss and Anubias to it. I'm not sure how deep the tank is but you could try vallis and Amazon swords at the base of the wood...they get big.

    Found some dwarf hair grass today, like a little bit. I will start dosing this tank and jacking the lights. Hope it works....

    Nice rocky valley you have going.

    What does it look like right to left, is the slope not a bit much or is that not your viewing corner?
