Most people cap their dirt, but those that dont cap them spends weeks mineralizing them, so it doesn't get all muddy.

Default My phone pics are lazy and like to be laying down...

My back glass is frosted. Just went out today and got a potted plant, and talked my way to some free hornwort from petco. Also 3 black Molly fry. Will most likely RAOK them once I get my actually fish stock ready. Hoping if all goes I can have it at least planted after the convention.

So far water is clear and dirt has settled. I have green water which I am super excited for cause I haven't used any ferts. Can't wait to get it planted and watch the plants bathe in joy! Along with an oto or two

So last night I was at petco. Got a melon sword, free hornwort, and 4 free Molly fry. Get to my gf place and I dumped everything in the tank and she asked me "what are those?" I said baby black mollys. She then goes on about how she never owned a fish and was super excited... That left me scratching my head considering there has been a 5.5g fish tank with dirt sitting on her night stand for a week. Not sure what she thinking the tank was for. Anyways I was awaken at 730am by this comment! I got a theme for the tank. "Charlie's angels" or the power puff girls. Consider I told her there was 3f 1m the night prior. So much for my Buddha scape thoughts and killi fish...

Default Finished up!

Fauna
Scarlet badis (LFS)
Hara jerdoni (Franks aquarium)
Boraras brigittae (Franks aquarium)
Black Molly fry (LFS... Hate em!)

Flora
Crypt wendtii "red"
Lilaeopsis brasiliensis (Dave Allen)
Frogbit
Elocharis acicularis (Gordon Richards)
Cannot remember the name of the stems! If you know them yell them out!

Substrate
High organic potting soil
Blackworm colony

Filter
Fluval chi stock
Aqueon quiet flow internal filter

Lighting
LED
2 Cree Cool Whites
2 Cree Royal Blue

I am thinking of putting an air bubbler, and rigging some CO2 to flow through the same line. Not worried about losing CO2. I just want to give the plants a bit more of a boost.

Will be fertilizing with oscomote root tabs filled with 1ml maybe 2ml of floranova grow

Thank you thank you Just another water change or so I'd say! I can't wait for the badis badis to do their thing, and the black mollies to fly away
