new to planted tank..

here's my fluval edge.

with white LEDs and 10 watt CFL on..





10 watt cfl only..



anubias nana
java fern
java moss

2 white clouds
2 cardinals
1 panda cory cat

baby snail that sneaked in on my plants

i bought 2 cherry shrimp last week...but haven't seen them since their first night when they were hiding under a rock..did notice them out later that night when the lights were out...

these pics were taken a little over 2 weeks ago..

plants seem to be doing well...and the fish love the real plants.

the cory is always chillin' on the anubius leaves...

It says it lasts about a month and each refill is $6? You're better off buying a real CO2 system. It costs like $10 to fill a 5lb tank and you can probably run that for 2 years or more on the Edge.

That's a good looking tank. What are you going to stock it with?

Ya those are CRS, thats not the tank temp thats the room temp. I keep it between 72-76 for the CRS.

Here's an update of mine. I took out a few plants to make it a little more clean. My Java Moss has finally started to grow in the last week.

Guerdonian Edge

Here is my edge so far:
Lighting:
Upgraded LED lights
Ikea LACK lights See Detail Picture
Plant list:
cryptocoryne willisii x3
Anubias nana x1
Java moss all over
Otherstuff:
driftwood stump
Java moss "wall" in the left corner (just placed, needs to fill in)
Manzanita branches
seachem flourite red substrate, with seachem flourish
Livestock:
Nothing yet, still cycling


I plan on adding maybe another anubias nana in the right corner, and also the additional light under the hood. As far as livestock, i plan on adding some cherry red shrimp, about 5 galaxy rasbora (celestial pearl danio is the new name) and an otocinclus. I also hope to add the in-filter heater and reduce the length of the filter "snorkel" to get a cleaner look.


I have learned that long tweezers come in handy for placement, the branches were soaked for 2 weeks prior to placing them in the tank to eliminate tannins, but made them a bit more flexy to fit through the tiny hole. I also have a feeling that my lack of access to the glass will be a bit of a problem in a few weeks when algae starts showing up.
