300L jungle

Got no recent pics of this tank and took a few shots today.

This is my ignored tank as I don't have time to prune it as often as it needs. So I decided to leave it as a jungle.

Due to this fact, some bits of plants were left on the surface to float and they formed a carpet, now they're flowering.

Got some Rotala Rotundifolia growing emersed, Lindernia, Ammannia Gracillis and Limnophila Aromatica:

Will do the fts, but need to plant a Ranunculus bush that's half floating. Doesn't look decent that way

Lights, DIY fixture with 4X54W Osram 965 fluorescent lamps.
Filtration, one Eheim 2080 with the intake hooked to an UGF
Fertilization, pressurized CO2 with a DIY reactor made of a typical water filter. Macro: PPS-Pro formula. Micro: JBL Ferropol 24, Tracemix, some EasyLife Iron.
Substrate: AquaMedic Volcanit
Water: 100% RO water

I don't have any special plants and the typical fauna for a planted tank consisting mostly of Neon Tetras.

Quoted from my introductory post.
