Low tech/Asian biotope
I've had a 75 g high tech planted tank for almost 3 yrs now but I'm leaving the country for 2 months starting in June. I'm planning to sell most of my plants except the anubias and the crypts. I'm also getting rid of my tetras, shrimps, ottos, and corrys.
Once, I'm back in August I want to try a low tech planted tank with Asian biotope as far as the fish go such as clown loaches, pearl gourami, SAE, red tailed black shark, and a few others.
As for equipment and maintenance, I'm planning to keep the pressurized CO2 system just keep the PH low. Dose ferts (EI method) only half a dose per week (meaning one day macros and one day micros per week ONLY) and do 40% WC every 2 wks. I'm also keeping one T5HO 54 watts light fixture.
I wonder if Blyxa Japonica and Marsilea Hirsuta survive given such conditions. Any other suggestions? Please do let me know.
