First Planted Tank
I'm wanting to make this journal as a record of this new hobby that I've acquired. If you want to comment on anything please feel free to do so. Otherwise I'm going post at least weekly with more frequent updates if anything pops up. So let's rock n roll!
This is a standard 20 gallon tank with that beautiful rim. Equipment is as follows:
-Light fixture is an unknown brand from my LFS but is running 2x 24 watt T5HO's. One is at 6700k and the other is 10000k.
-Substrate is Flourite Red. The rock I forget the exact type.
-As of right now the tank will be planted with Dwarf Hair Grass carpeted via the Dry Start Method. My Saran Wrap does quite reach each side so it provides for some gas exchange during the process. My goal is to start with an 8 hr photo period and go from there.
- As far as inhabitants go I would like to have a small school of fish along with shrimp but I haven't gotten that far yet. I've already made acquaintance with a snail whilst preparing the grass so he might have brought friends we will just have to see.
- further upgrades will include canister filter, possible upgrade of lighting, and a possible diffuser if I can't stand to remember dosing.
Anyways that's a very rough intro for now. Enjoy the pictures and feel free to let me know advise, comments, or compliments!
