Hey everybody. I will sooner or later have to tear down my 5g tank (link in sig), but I have a 28g that I just emptied and and I have a vision for. It was inspired by user "ebileth" and her 29g which can be found here Super budget 29g
Here are my plants.
Light- PC fluorescent screw-ins.
Substrate- MGOPS and pool filter sand.
Hardscape- Lava Rock, maybe some obsidian. I would like a piece of cholla wood for the shrimp community to hang out in.
Ferts- None to start. I plan to go EI later on.
Fish- I want a big school of a type of tetra, a clean up crew consisting of otos, shrimp, and snails, and a few "centerpiece" fish like dwarf guoramis or something. This part may change!!
Plants- I'm going to use plants from my 5g, so I will have Java fern and hygrophilia corymbosa stricta
. I would also like to add blyxa japonica
, s. repens
, Lindernia rotundifolia
, and some sort of floating plant.
I've been building a light for this, it's nothing special. Here's a few pics
I plan to add a third lamp to the fixture. The bulbs in there right now are 13w 6500k, but I feel that because of the 19" depth of the tank I will need more wattage. It will be trial and error I suppose.
That's all for now. Don't expect an update for a while, because I need to gather all the supplies, but I wanted to write this out as sort of my "game plan" that you can expect.
