Hello everyone.

My first planted tank

CO2

CO2 is supplied by a Pressurized CO2 system 5lb tank (Mike) with Ista 3 in 1 Diffuser

Fertilizers

I dose EI weekly and 50% water change weekly (Niclog)

Filtration

This is filtered by a Aquaclear 20 | Small Finnex Nano filter (for seeding for a nano tank)

Substrate

ADA Aquasoil I & II mixed (Alan & Mike)

Heater

It's heated by 25w small heater

Hardscape

Just a small driftwood

Plants

There is no theme for the plants I've chosen. These are plants I have received as a RAOK from a fellow PTP NYC'ers that helped me get started (Alan, Kitty, Chris & Albert) thank you all. And the rest that I bought from few that I named here and else where.

Hygro Sunset
Some red orange rottella
1 stem of giant baby tear
Needle leaf java
H. 'ceylon', Rotala sp
Red lotus plant
Micranthemum sp. "Montecarlo-3" (foreground)

Fauna

Sundadanio axelrodi - 6 (1 .. I still have no idea where he/she went)
Carbon Black Neo Shrimps - 2
Tangerine Tiger Shrimps - 2
Pygmy Corydoras? - 15 (1 jumped and died)
Scarlet Badis or Dario Dario (3) 1 dominate male (Hope the other 2 might be females?)
Boraras brigittae Mosquito Rasbora aka Chili Rasboras - 4 (bough 6 total again.. 2 passed :'( )
Ramshorn Snail - 30+ babies + a few adults (No 5 or so thanks so Assassin Snails)
Pond Snail - 7
Assassin Snail - 7

Live Culture

3 Types of Microworm culture (3 different media)
1 Black worm culture

Thanks,
Ivan
