After a good long ride with my GLA looking like a mini-collectoritis tank, I decided to tear it down and go simple -- since I'll be focusing more on my newly acquired 60P. I also ran my GLA with lily pipes, pressurized co2, and a Finnex Ray 2 for about a year. I have since moved my Cal Aqua pipes and pressurized co2 to our 60F
. I've invested more money but toward my 60P. To keep this GLA going, I switched out to an AC 20, DIY co2, and bought a (less intense) Finnex FugeRay-R clip light...
Here are some random pics of the OLD setup
Since I've acquired an ADA 60-P for my living room, this GLA tank will sort of take the backseat. I want to try to do something simple and less complicated. I'm planning to limit it to only three species of plants. But with all things, everything is subject to change
So on with the formalities:
Tank - GLA 6g (15" x 9" x 11") - High Clarity Glass
Light - Finnex FugeRay-R Clip Light
Filter - AC 20
ADA Aqua Soil "Africana"
DHG - E. Parvula
Scarlet Badis (x2)
Galaxy Rasboras (CPD)
**Eventually I want to turn this into a shrimp tank**
PPS-Pro "Dry Ferts" & Glut Supplementation
CO2 - DIY
And some pictures:
I don't have time to be too nit-picky with the layout... I hope this is cool for a quick scape. Figured that I'd place the dominant stone on the right.
Now for some planting... DHG (e. parvula) in the foreground and up the center. Blyxa Japonica on each end in the back. Then the "narrow leaf" micro sword (Lilaeopsis mauritiana) in the center.
and taken the day after when the water cleared up:
Now I just need things to fill in and grow GRASSY! Like the African(a) Serengeti!
Changed the tank a bit to something a little more carefree... switched out a lot of plants for Mosses. I also changed out the Ohko to Yamaya. I'm going to make this a shrimp-focused tank!
Thanks for stopping by TPT'ers!
