surface skimmer
2fans ~ temp 27-28 during lights on (maybe add another fan to bring down temp further)
base fert with normal 2-3 mm gravel on top.

122 watts (PL) 10 hrs
co2 cylinder type using internal reactor 2-3 bps (soleniod)
just started liquid fert dosing today using easylife pro-fito (weekly dose)

the lotus leaves has holes due to mishandling during transfer from a 2ft planted that i tore down.

6 rainbow fish
8 gobies
50+ shrimps
2 rams
10 badi badis

Edit your original post by deleting the ".orig.jpg" portion of the image URL, and your picture should show up fine.

Finally got the pic to work by cutting and pasting the link from your first post.

Tank looks great. I like the front left, is that a group of small swords? And is that moss growing up the wood in the middle?

hi Tony

i'm not really sure about the name of that plant.
all i did was go to an aquaplant farm and pick out those that caught my eye. can't really remember names but i did try to make sure whether the plants i got were suitable for foreground, mid ground or background.

cheers
melvin

Default 48G rescape

hi, did a rescape last month.
got really frustrated with the maintenance required for the stem plants (not to mention the bba).
and since this tank is not at my place (in-laws), thought i'll try my hand at doing a low-maintenance setup.
