Light: 30W LED flood light ~5000k
CO2: DIY 2 Juice jug setup(~1 gallon each)-Drop checker is lime green
Substrate: MGOPM capped with wild brown sand.
Present Fauna: Nothing until after T-givings (planning one or two pairs of dwarf cichlids, at least one of them will be of the genus Apistogramma!, A small school of rasboras, leaning towards Axelrod's var blue, and/or Boraras briggate, perhaps a trio of Corydoras sp.).
Present Flora: Erio cinerum, E. tenellus, Limnophilia hippruoides, Crypts(becketti, lutea, parva, ect). A wee bit of mixed moss.
