Planted Tank Obsessed
75g Apisto tank
This tank is going a NPT [Natural Planted Tank] where the plants are going to be the main filter. It has Mineralized Topsoil with a small layer of Eco complete topped with a thick 1/2"+ layer of Indian Almond Leaved [maybe oak next fall]. It is packed full of plants, has some drift wood and 3 rock caves I bought off Aquabid. It will have almost no current. It first going to be a South American biotope, till I found out about NPT's and decided to go that route.
Its lit with a Odyssea 2x54 watt 6500 suspended over the tank. The tank is topped with a screen top.
