My Planted Fluval Spec V


Don't you love awesome camera phone pictures?

I finally got the planting done in my Spec V last night. I'd been putting it off until I had a couple of hours to spare.

Equipment:
Fluval Spec V
Stock (modified) filter
Stock lighting
Hydor 50W submersible heater (in pump chamber)

Flora:
Purple Cabomba
Marsilea Minutia
Hydrocotyle Japan
Flame, fissidens, and peacock moss
"Dwarf" sag
hygrophila bold
1 weepy little crypt
ludiwigia repens x l acurta
rotala green
Anubias petite
rotala r.

Fauna:
None, unless you count the snail eggs I missed.

I'll take a couple of pictures with a real camera later - I should hopefully be picking up some RCS and PFRs today. After they're established and the mosses have grown out some, I'll be adding a Betta.

A few additional crummy camera phone photos:

Still letting things grow in before adding a betta.

The "rooty" piece of driftwood, crawling with shrimp (you can see some of the super glue used to attach the moss to the wood):
