I've had aquariums for at least 8 years now but all of them have been plastic planted. This is my first step into planted tanks. This tank has been running for about a month now but I just got most of my plants.
My current tank is an eclipse 3g with the stock hood as well as a 10w light added giving me 16 watts. The majority of the inside of the hood has been covered with a chrome tape i found. I have also added a small computer fan under the hood to help with cooling.
Tank: Eclipse 3g
Light: Stock 6w light plus a 10w CF
Filter: Stock built in filter
Substrate: 1" of sand topped off with 1" of black gravel- I shoved fertilizer tabs in between the two.
Plants: Not too sure what all of them are- Java Fern, Cryptocoryne spiralis (?), Argentina Sword (?), and one plant that I have no idea but i think it's some kind of sword. I have Marselia minuta on the way as a foreground plant
Fish: 2 Rummy Nose Tetras and 2 Otos
I am dosing Excel every other day.
Let me know what you guys think. I'm open to suggestions.
