Sorry for the delay guys! Since starting the tank I bought a new camera as the old one took a crap in the middle of planting. So unfortunately I don't have any pics of the first few weeks. The tank was cycled after 8 days and I added fish on the 18th of October.
10 Dwarf Hairgrass pots
20 Dwarf Baby Tears pots
6 Stems of Red Hornwort- soon to be gone
4 Licorice Gouramis
5 Micro Rasporas (Boraras Micros)
1 Unknown Tetra (he blends in with the gouramis and may think he is one)
4 Ghost Shrimp
2 Cory Cats
1 Horseface Loach
Bits came in from Amazon. The UV sterilizer was for this tank.
Routing behind the tank
Different so no mixing up inflow and outflow
Sterilizer mounted up underneath
Solution for a bunch of tiny runners
Fast forward a couple of weeks
Plants have runners going
Did a trim the other night
Fish seem to love this
I've been fighting with the carpet. I think its a mixture of not enough light and not enough current. I'll be trying some experiments later this week to help.
