1st Planted Tank 13 Gallon
Hey guys and girls!
Recently sold off my 20L reef tank and sump and bought a sweet little rimless 13 gallon and started my first ever planted tank.
I am learning more everyday but just want to see what you guys think I am doing right and what I might need to change. I am particularly interested in what you guys think about my layout and lighting. It is my old reef light that I changed over to 6500K bulbs.
Some quick stats:
4 T5 HO (2x 6500K, 1 ATI Purple Plus, 1 420nm Actinic)
20 Pounds Black Sand (Leftover from reef tank but thoroughly rinsed and disinfected)
2 Stones a friend gave me. I am saving up for some better looking black rock
Kept at about 78F
KH= 240 (pretty hard I know)
GH= 180 (Again, pretty hard water. Not sure if this is good or bad...)
4 Neon Tetras
3 Rummy Nose Tetras
2 Green Cory Cats
2 Yellow Mystery Snails
1 Anubias Barteri spp.
1 Anubias afzelii
Bunch of Vallisneria spp. (not sure the exact species)
1 Giant Hygrophilia
2 Crypt. spp. (Long leafed)
1 bunch Crypt. Wendtii Green
1 Hermianthus (I think "cuba" was sold as dwarf baby tears)
I am running a homemade CO2 yeast setup, I also have a couple flourish tabs in the substrate. I dose API Leaf Zone and Flourish Excel every other week.
Wow i love those branches and the slope u did there.
great start! can't wait to see how this filled in.
you have baby tear, it is very hard to grow( need bright light and co2), more java moss tie on branch
