My 1.5g cube


I set this 1.5g cube tank it comes in a kit with led lighting that is a cool idea as long as your not trying to grow plants, so I removed it. I am having the typical diatom problems thanks to the Soilmaster but other than that the plants are pearling like crazy and seem to growing new runners as the tank is new but am noticing new growth already.

Lighting: 27w 6500K Desk lamp from Home Depot

Substrate: Soilmaster Select Charcoal

Fertilizer: Greg Watson Ferts. E.I.

Co2: DIY and Excel

Plants: Currently Saggitaria subulata and Glossostigma elatinoides ( waiting on some shipments of different plants mainly some Eleocharis acicularis aka Dwarf Hairgrass and HC )

Livestock: Boraras maculatus aka Pygmy Rasboras and some temp. residents Carinotetraodon travancoricus aka Dwarf Puffers(till I get my new tanks setup) and one zebra stripped Nerite snail.

IMO, that dwarf puffer has to go. The tank is too small, there is not much tall plants that the dwarf puffer can hide in swim around etc, and your microrasboras will be lunch. Maybe not now, but someday. I like it your tank anyway.

And as I am writing this you said that its there until you have your new tank. I'm an idiot.

Well I like your tank. Your water looks a little hazy though. Can't wait til things fill in!

The close ups were taken right after a water change and it was a bit hazy its cleared up now but allot of it has to due with my lack of photo skills its been awhile since taking any tank or fish pictures so I have to work on it again.

Hmmm, i think your substrate bed is too deep. Even for those plants, it looks bad in a tank that small. It also takes up alot of water space.
Otherwise...nice tank.
