mluk27's ADA Mini M Zoa/Paly Garden.. Fluval Edge Coming soon.
I thought it was time to post this tank since I just filled it. I grew the UG emerged for about a month and I just filled it today. The driftwood gave me a little bit of a headache by floating up and uprooting a bunch of UG and rotala and that took a while to fix that and replant. Hopefully everything grows back in nicely and the UG transitions smoothly. The tank looks pretty terrible right now
Flora: UG, Rotala butterfly, Downio, java moss
Heres when I first planted the UG
A week ago
Before the fill
I have a t5 light over it now until I get my solar mini s

Reason: new tank
Update Pic: Everything has settled and I just hooked up my Eheim 2211 which was such a pain, since the instructions were terrible. I need to order some lily pipes soon cuz these green pipes and tubing are just ugly lol
Hm.. I am trying to decide if I want to wait for the new ADA LED light or if I should just pick up a solar S. Since UG is a huge light hog, I would be worried of it not getting enough light and melting off.. Does anyone have some input here? Most LEDS I have seen are not sufficient enough for high light plants
Its supposed to be June, so my tank is going to stay under this 24 inch light for a bit longer.. lol I agree though, if anyone is going to do it right its going to be ADA, Im just a little scared of the price as well lol. Hopefully prices stay consistent with the Solar minis.
So my downoi is looking pretty terrible, it looking a light green/transparent as if its about to melt. I have seen this before with another tank with UG and downoi, is the cause of it a lack of iron? I hear both plants can be iron hogs along with rotala butterfly, so if I start dosing iron should it get it healthy again? I have been blasting Co2 to the point of overdose since I am transitioning the UG, but I didnt think that should be an issue. If anyone can give me more insight on the matter I would greatly appreciate it.
