12 gallon long - my first Co2 Attempt

Hi, this is my first journal .

This is the first tank I'm going all out on, co2, EI dosing, etc. In the past I've only had low tech tanks with low light plants. This time I'm going to test out the other side of the pool.

I'm going to be doing a dry start with quite of bit of HC in aquasoil. Now that I look back at it, I should've spent the effort to spread them out more since I got so much.

Also I'm waiting on a stand.

This was when I started.

This is now .

Interesting start. People usually have the hardscape done prior to dry starting. Makes me curious as to what your plans are. Goodluck and have fun with it. This is truely an awesome tank to own. The pressure is on you to make this a great aquascaped tank, as most people with this 12 gal long step up their game.....
