2in10's 75 Gallon Jungle part 1
 
So I completed the redo on 2-5. All is new except the Madagascar Lace, Barclaya, Wisteria, Anubias, rocks and the Crypts in the front right.

I have 4X54W T5HO lighting with 1 5100K, 2 6500K and 1 UVL Actinic White bulbs. They are 10" above the water and on for 10 hours a day. I add at least 6ml of Seachem Excel daily, 6ml of Seachem Iron, 10ml Seachem Potassium, 15ml Seachem Trace and 5ml Seachem Flourish weekly. The substrate is Aquariumplants.com's original substrate and has been in place for about 3 years. I add their pellet fertilizer when I remember.:icon_redf

I change ~25% or the water every 1 or 2 weeks with tap treated with Seachem prime. I top off with RODI water.

I intend to have 6 Pearl Gouramis, 20 Harlequin Rasboras and 3 to 6 SAE's. I will not replace the Neon and Danios as they die. I also have a Rubberlip Plecostomus and may or may not add more.

How big is that piece of driftwood? It looks huge! :drool:

Looking good!

Where'd you find some Barclaya? I was just talking with the owner of my LFS today, we were saying how we never see it any more...

I have had it for 3 years and can't remember where I got it. It was from AZaquaticgardens.com I think. They have it available but have a minimum purchase amount of $35 if I remember right and they charge a lot for air shipping.

Your tank is setup well. I can't wait to see it grow in more. Is the betta playing nice with the others? He looks so laid back. :)

Thanks, I am getting impatient for it to grow in already. The Betta is being a good citizen so far although I did catch him trying to stalk the Neon.

Here is the latest on the tank and its growth.

I am thinking I may need to increase the Excel and iron dosing. Possibly may increase the Flourish dosing as well.
