---CryptKeeper54's ADA mini M "Reborn"---
Yes. I painted an ADA tank for a permanent black background. Taboo I know, but this tank is of the older variety so I did it.
This will be a CRS tank eventually/hopefully, housed at work where the tank will be in an air conditioned room making for much cooler waters. Actualy made this for our ward secretary who was willing to "baby-sit" my tank. Gave me an excuse to work on this project without the wife getting too crazy. I will only keep it at home till I get the tank stabilized.
Plants: E.Parvula, H.Kompact, mini Pelia, Rotala Vietnam, H.Micranthemoides, A.Nana petite, and Buces (3 small kayukalan? I think.... will revise when I confirm later). Buces were not growing well in my 12 gal long (check my sig) so I threw them in here to see how they do.
Hardscape: river rock pebbles and ADA Hornwood.
Using a Fluval C2 for filtration.
Just going to do Excel dosing MWF, as per instructions. Will try to determine fertilizer program (if any) after plants settle in for a month or two. Planted in Fluval Shrimp Stratum.
