Manzanita 29g Low Light
I wanted to try a really low maintenance tank, so here it goes...
I have a Zoomed 2 x T5 light hanging 28 inches from the substrate. According to some things I've read on the Internets this should give me around 25-30 PAR at the substrate. I bought 2 bags of ADA Aquasoil Amazonia and hopefully with that potent stuff I'll only have to dose ferts once every 2 weeks and top off the tank every so often. I'll use the dry start method then dose Excel for a month or two and slowly wean off that until it's completely self sustaining. That's the goal at least.
I'll be putting a pair of Apistogramma cacatuoides and some other schooling fish. Open to opinions, although I'm leaning towards emperor tetra's. I don't want any rasboras, cardinals, or rummynose tetra's. They're great but I already had those and I'm looking for something new.
Here's the hardscape, drilled and screwed 3 Manzanita branches together.
