Lighting: 1 X 12w LED - The room gets bright ambient sunlight...
Equipment:55W heater Built-in 3 stage filter
CO2: nil
Substrate:Layer one - thin Eco-Complete then cap|top layer white river pebbles

I had very limited budget when I started it, and I practically just asked a few mates with high tech tanks to give me their left over plants and trimmings, half a kilo of the Eco-Complete. I dare say I've used up the nutrients already on the Eco-Complete substrate, so Im begining to add flourish carbon everyday and Flourish trace every week.

I have a few BB algae and other types of algae on the tank, but I think I found the balance know to not mind them being there, as long as they are controlled.

Thanks all..
