This is my second planted tank attempt. Tank has been running about a month now and all seems well so far.
A few details about the set up....
Tank - clearseal 30x12x12"
Filtration - Hagen Fluval 206 with Lilly pipes
Lighting - Cheapo light unit with upgraded 2 x 24w T5
Heater - Ehiem Jäger 75w
Substrate - JBL Aquabasis plus with manado cap
Co2 - 2kg pressurised with solenoid reg, full glassware with JBL diffuser
Dosing - EI dosing with 50% weekly water change
Fauna - Lots lol
Flora - Blyxa japonica, pogostemon helferi. I did have hc but that went
I currently run the lights at 6 hours a day and have the co2 kick in 2 hours before this. I've had major bba issues previous to this so I'm trying to be extra cautious with the photoperiod.
Here's a picture of the tank as of yesterday and after w/c and tidy up. Let me know what you think. I'm considering a moss for the wood but not sure. Suggestions welcome!
Here's a tweaked picture. Love editing apps on iPhone lol
