5 gallon hex (Baby's first tank! 10/11/11)

Standard hood (10w 6500k daylight compact, 9hr photoperiod w/1 hr siesta) & filter

Dosing: <1/64 t. KH2PO4 <1/16 t. KNO3 <1/64 t. CSM+B 3x/week
(on hold for the moment) mixed in solution, 13.9 ml/dose

Anubias barteri 'Nana'
Cryptocoryne parva
Cryptocoryne retrospiralis
Echinodorus tenellus
Egeria densa
Lilaeopsis brasiliensis
Ludwigia repens x arcuata
Süßwassertang (a few pieces here and there, not expecting a comeback)

Super Delta tail betta

Scroll to last page to see new stuff!

I think within the next week I'm going to add an inch of leftover flourite to the bottom of the gravel to help the plant growth, since the crypts seem to do nothing, even in front of the tank.

Not the best pic, but it's a boring tank right now.
