4 weeks of growth - 4 pics


4 weeks of growth on my 8g nano



The wisteria has been chopped down twice now and propagated to fill in the back - thinking of removing it soon and replacing with some red plant.
Water onion on the right also gets trimmed weekly - might have to go as well.

Just added an additional light (for 51W) and injected CO2 - curious to see how week 5 fares.

It is microsword! It is showing the least vibrancy - which will hopefully be cleared up by the higher wattage lights and addition of pressurized CO2.

Full specs:

Substrate: Fluval Stratum / Petco Sand
Hardscape: Found driftwood / rocks
Filtration: modified Magnum 350 canister - recirculation gate / valved
Other Tek: 2x 13W 6500K CFL (~3 W/G), (11/15 added 1x 25W CFL and solenoid controlled CO2 injection)

Flora: Anubias (removed) / Green Crypt / Micro Sword / Windelov Fern / Wisteria / random betta bulb / fissidens fontanus

Fauna: Betta Splendens, 5x(?) Red Cherry Shrimp, 1 Apple Snail, 1 Nerite Snail, 10x Corydoras Pygmaeus, 1 Amano Shrimp, 1 Otoclinus

Light Schedule: 8 hours on 16 off, CO2 8:16 shifted 1 hour earlier than the lights

Ferts: Dosing Flourish 2x weekly as of week 3, no root tabs or cal-mag

Water Parameters:
0 AM 0 Nitrites 5-10 Nitrates

Thanks my friend, that'd be a Cryptocoryne Wendtii - grows like a weed
So far I've removed 4 leaves which were getting aged.
