Tank was started sometime June, and started a fishless cycle. July 21st, 2010, my betta was introduced
At first I went with a plant only tank idea, but that quickly changed as I read into tanks more and came across this forum.
-100w Fluval M Heater
-2x - 15w 6500k Spiral CFL ( Ran 12pm - 12am )
-DIY CO2 injected into filter @ 1-1.5bps ( 2 bottles, started 1 week apart.. Think I found a good recipe to get it going 2 weeks apart at same bps )
-Seachem Ammonia Alert
3x Peppered Cory's
Rootmedic complete substrate capsules
Rootmedic micro/macro 3x a week
Old seachem flourish root ferts.
