My tank- take 2.

Hi all, Thought i would share.

so after letting the tank go a bit i decided now i have a job to give it some attention. I decied to try my hand at a planted set up. (or at least will be) still freshly planted.
So i ripped it apart, put some under plant substrate and decided to go with the following-

Running 2kg FE co2 @ 30-35ppm
Dry fert dosing/ root tabs
2.5 WPG

Echinodorus Rubra
Echinodorus Blerhi (sp?)
Pogostemon helferi
Alternanthera cardinalis
Lobelia cardinalis
Wisteria (hydrophilia diphormis...or something like that i think :lol
Am also trying my hand at some HC but that does not seem to be going very well as it keeps getting uprooted. will try that again at a later date i reckon.
Now all there is to do is hope for some strong growth and no alage!

Any input/ advice greatly recieved.
