Thought I'd share my lil 1ft cube:
20W 5000K screw in CF
50w Tronic Heater
Aquaclear mini with just sponge on minimum flow
Dupla pressurised CO2 (hehe can you say overkill! Hey its sitting around I might as well use it
2mm gravel with laterite mixed in to the bottom 1/3
At the moment the plants are:
Anubias barteri var. nana
Nymphaea lotus 'zenkeri'
I decided to go with relatively slow growers and a large peice of interesting wood as I was going for a more "timely" feel with the tank. Didn't want to be trimming stem plants all the time.
There is one lonely little neon in the tank that my boss couldn't help but put in there when I wasn't looking. Final inhabitants I plan to have are a small group of minature corys (not sure of species yet), a small school of endlers live bearers / harlequin rasboras / other small pretty unusual mid water fish, and probably a baby pepermint or two .
I am currently in the process of trying to obtain some Glossostigma elatinoides to get a small carpet of it started at the front of the tank. If this proves to difficult to get hold of I may tie some riccia down to slate and have a riccia carpet.
Hope you enjoy the lil tank.
