Heya All, thought I might as well post up here. This is my first planted Tank. I'm an ex-reefer. This tank is about 14 days old, and still is having pieces being added to it constantly right now here are the specs:
TopFin 60 Crappy over the back filter (Bought an Eheim 2213 w/ surface extractor but still hasn't shown up in the mail yet)
2x65w 48" Power Compact Fixture
2x15w 24" Fixture = 3 WPG or so, going to add another 48" PCF when I have the money
150w Heater and 200w Heater
2 Nutrafin Co2 Systems
Gravel/Flourite/Laterite used for Substrate
Aquaclear Powerhead 802
I had 4 little cheesy decorations that I had put in the tank to please some of my family around here, I have already removed 2 and the one on the left will be removed as the tank grows in more. The only one I plan on keeping is the sunken ruins. Right now I am noticing atleast and inch of growth a day or so.
My water right now is about:
Nitrite 4+ (Skyhigh but still cycling)
Right now my inhabitants are 2 Black Skirt Tetras and 3 gold skirt tetras. I also have Rotala Indicia, moneywort, pennywort, amazon swords, bacomba, cabomba, arachnias, and I believe wysteria (pardon my spelling on these if I butchered them.) Anyways let me know what you think, pointers tips, etc. I plan on adding another Power Compact Fixture to almost push 5 WPG, uv sterilizer, auto feeder, and ph monitor to the tank. Of course once it's cycled then I'll add in the algae control crew.
This isn't the best picture, it's really poor actually, will take center/left/right pics here in a day or two. I also still have plenty of room in the front to plant some anubias/ground cover that I am planning to try to plant some anubias nana's and coffelia's and maybe try to do a little glosso field somewhere.
