New to Low Tech, Seeking advice
I have a 30 gallon high tech tank and I'm setting up a GLA 36-L high tech iwagumi setup. I've now decided to set up the 10 gallon tank that's just been taking up space for a low tech/low maintenance shrimp tank. Here's what I've got:
Standard 10 gallon glass aquarium and stand
Basic cheapo hood with 15W T8 fixture
Aquaclear 20 HOB filter
Aqueon heater that came with the kit when I got it 3 years ago
I'm planning on using Fluval Shrimp Stratum for substrate.
Here's the plants I'm wanting to keep:
Anubias barteri var. nana "petite"
Anubias barteri var. coffeefolia
Bolbitus heudelotii (african congo fern)
Microsorum pteropus (java fern)
Cryptocoryne wendtii green
Some sort of moss, undecided among: Fissidens fontanus, Singapore moss, flame moss, willow moss
As far as stocking goes, only a few otos and painted fire red shrimp.
Does anyone with experience in low tech setups have any suggestions or foresee any problems with keeping these in a low tech setup?
P.S. Oh yeah, this whole scape will be created around a piece or two of manzanita branch and some extra sieryu stones that I have left over.
