Date Started 10/2/13
Lighting A pair of tube fluorescent shop lights of unknown type (unlabeled).
Equipment Tank was gifted by a friend; old and the brands/etc. are not discernible.
CO2 Fish breathing!
Substrate Special Kitty kitty litter topped with creek rock, gravel, and sand. Bare patches of kitty litter as well.
Parameters I've never checked water parameters. Local tapwater is supposedly basic ~8 pH and rather hard. Plants abundant in tank and fish healthy so nitrogen compounds are presumably at healthy levels.
Fertilization Fish poo.

Comments Native Iowa species theme (See plant and fish stocking). My only tank at the moment, in a dorm. Low-tech. Has been having problems with plant growth due to exposed patches of kitty litter (silt settles on leaves). Fishes are healthy and fun to watch.
