So, when I first started this tank I really had no idea what I was doing. I still don't. But now that I've decided to go full NPT and I'm a couple weeks in, I just became aware that I'm going to have to move the tank in December.
For that reason, and others, I'm going to be doing a full replanting sometime soon. I want to replace the dirt and soil cap (which I don't like anyways - white sand does not suit it) with stratum, and I'll be moving a few things around. I just think it will be more manageable in a tank of this size.
But for anyone curious, here's the current setup:
Aqueon Evolve 2
Fluval 13W light
Miracle gro + sand cap substrate
Stock filter, plus a heater
Very occasional liquid CO2
Very occasional dosing of ferts (I still don't really get how/how much to dose in a super small tank)
cryptocoryne, ludwigia repens, marimo moss ball, hornwort, duckweed, sunset hygro
Male betta fish, some pond snail hitchhikers
This is about 2 weeks in - please excuse the detritus, it's due for a clean up but I've been lazy!
