Alex Glasgarten Mini L

Hi Guys,

i started my first nature (kind of) layout like two weeks ago. Now i want to show you how it grows

- Glasgarten Mini L (size like ADA Mini L)
- JBL e700 filter
- inline co2 (approx 30 bubbles/minute)
- lights are 2 x 11w from fluval
- gUSH in- and outflow

- red wood
- african pagode
- small pieces of "serpentine stone"
- Glasgarten "Environment Soil"
- ADA mekong sand powder

- Vesicularia dubyana
- Vesicularia ferriei "Weeping Moss"
- Anubias bateri var. nana "petite"
- Hydrocotyle sp. tripartita "Japan"
- Eleocharis pusillia (E. parvula)
- Glossostigma elatinoides
- Fontinalis antipyretica
- Juncus repens
- Microsorum pteropus "Needle Leaf"
- small bits of Riccardia graeffei "Mini Pellia / Coral Pellia"

This is the current state after 14 days, i will update this journal from time to time.

Your feedback is very welcome!!

Nice. You should get some shrimp.

How I feel about non-planted aquariums.

this is your first layout attempt? That is an excellent first try.

Nice balance and I like the sand path.

Thanks for your comments so far!!

I have some amanos shrimp inside - for cleaning upcoming algue only.

This week i will change/add some white pearl shrimp a friend of mine is putting a lot of love in.

With these, i will also add like 10-15pcs of Danio margaritatus (aka Microrasbora sp. "Galaxy") or Dario dario.

Also, i got a lot more Microsorum "narrow" yesterday, it really fills the left corner now. A quick and dirty pictures is attached.

Hope you like it!
