Well, I finally got my 7 gal minibow setup. I would like to get feedback on aquascaping (I am somewhat challenged in this area
), plant suggestions that would work with my setup and any other general/helpful observations. The setup is only 2 days old so please take that into account.
Here are the specs
Lighting: (1) 13watt ahsupply PC retrofit (1.8 watts/gallon)
Substrate: 2 inches of flourite
Heater: 50 watt Ebo Jaegar heater
Filter: Aquaclear mini set on lowest output
Hagen CO2 system (I just set this up today so I don't have any CO2 production yet)
Temp 76 degrees F
KH 6 deg
Water sprite (floating)
Java Fern (attached to welaby wood)
Java Moss (attached to small piece of wood)
Hornwort (in substrate)
Here is a full tank pic. I don't have the best camera so it looks a little darker than it truly is.

I think I am going to add some fast growing stem plants in the next day or so. My plan is to wait 2 weeks for the plants to get established and to monitor my tank parameters as the CO2 gets going. I have a seeded sponge for the aquaclear that I will put in the tank at that time, or do you think I should put it in now?
I want to add 2 ottos as my first fish, then I am thinking maybe a small school of neon tetras and a couple of small cories.
I am looking forward to see how this tank develops and look forward to feedback.
Thanks for looking.
