Hello everyone, just moved out of my college apartment back home to where I'm setting up my new setup. I changed my substrate from tacky blue petsmart gravel, to eco-complete and yes, I am running an aquaponic bog bed as a part of my filtration.
Weird thing is, I'm about to go on vacation for a week. So I've had 2 days to put all this together, put everything on timers etc. Hopefully I don't come back to any algae booms or a moldy carpet haha.
increased lighing to 4wpg CFL bulbs (5 hours a day while I'm gone, when I'm back I'll go 6.5)
1 fancy goldfish
Wisteria, Amazon Sword, Annubias Barteri, Anacharis, Rotala Indica, Hornwort, Christmas Moss wall
New spot. The hood blocks the sunlight
Trimmed everything. I'm going to re-scape when I return from vacation
I like the Zebra Rock, but I'm not sure if it should be one of my main focal points. Any input on this matter would be most appreciated.
Okay and here is the Aquaponic Bed:
30 L plastic tub with a whole cut at the bottom, feeds back into the tank.
Miniature Horsetail Rush, Water Celery, Yellow Eyed Grass, Mondo Grass, Forget Me Not, Lobelia Cardinalis Seeds in the front right.
2 75 watt 6500K bulbs, 2 23 watt 2700K bulbs, 12 hours a day.
Currently, I'm fixing my outfall situation, letting some sealant dry so I can't post more pics at the moment. I'm planning on putting the fountain pump for 1 or 2 times a day for 30 min.
I'm leaving for Spokane WA from SF, CA in a few hours (driving) so I wanted to get this up fast. Any feedback/questions/suggestions would be great!
