Planted Tank Obsessed
Tiggity's Aqueon Evolve 8 Dirt Tank
Decided to tear down my Petco 6gallon bookshelf and picked up an Aqueon Evolve 8 for my office. Also, decided to do my 1st dirt tank
I used about 1" of Miracle Gro Organic potting soil and 1 1/2" of petco black sand.
Crypt wendtii green
Crypt wendtii red
Ludwigia Repens Broad Leaf
temporary Wisteria floating as an excess nutrient sponge
Very little cloudiness after filling it with water and I'm seeding the filter with the media (foam, bio modules, purigen bag) on my AC20 that was on the Petco bookshelf tank.
The Tank looks awesome and does not take up a lot of space. I'm very happy with how it turned out.
Unboxing and Set up:
Driftwood I'll be using:
The dirt after straining it:
Added water till it is a thick mud, almost looks like a brownie:
