My first planted!
Okay, So I've been out of the game of staying up on my forums for quite some time.. Just haven't had time.
But this past weekend I endowed quite the quest and looking for any pointers that ya'll might have. I started my first planted tank.
I started this whole 6 hour off impulse tank build by watching DustinsFishTanks, and I was like I'M DIRTING A TANK, DAMMIT. So, that's what I did.
I got Miricle Gro Organic potting mix, good 3/4s of an inch dirt than sand and gravel on top. After about 20 water changes I threw on a filter with polt-fil to polish it.
I went to the LFS and I got what I believe to be:
(amazon swords, java fern, camboma, and water sprite?)
So here's a pic of the tank as of this morning, if anyone could point out some tips, if I'm doing something wrong, or you love it, let me know!
Lighting: 2 cfl 26W 6500k bulbs in those clamp lights.
