10 Gallon
User Iron&Salt
Size 10 Gallon
Date Started January 12th, 2011
Lighting Aqueon 15W T8, 8K full-spectrum daylight.
Equipment Tetra adjustable heater, Aqueon Power Filter 10, no CO2 injection.
CO2 Natural Aquarium Vital Liquid CO2 from Marc Weiss Companies, Inc.
Substrate Eco-Complete (20 lbs.), river-rock colored gravel
Parameters Water temperature maintained at 78 degrees F. Stable water chemistry, Ph and ammonia reading slightly above ideal as of last check (Feb. 26th).
Fertilization "Total" fert tabs from aquariumplants.com - house brand.
Plants * 2 Four leaf clovers (Marsilea quadrifolia) * 4 Bacopa australis, 1 Blyxa auberti * 2 Red Tiger Lotus (Nymphaea zenkeri) bulbs, planted but not spouted * 1 Lace Java Fern (Microsorium pteropus v. "Windelov") * 1 Red Melon Sword (Echinodorus Barthii v. "red melon").
Inhabitants * 1 male Betta (lovingly named Captain Trips) * 3 neon tetras * 1 oto catfish * 1 common pleco
Comments Stock notes: I plan on upgrading the pleco and lotuses, should they make it, to a 55 or 75 gallon tank early 2013. If the pleco should outgrow the 10 gallon well before then my LFS will take him. As of right now he's standard pet store size: 1 1/2". Short-term Plans: My next order of business is ordering a more superior lighting system for this tank (http://www.aquariumhardware.com/catalog/20in-36W-1-BULB-COMPACT-LIGHTHOUSE-HOOD-528.html). It will definitely be better than the stock lighting from the Aqueon kit I purchased and I'm looking forward to seeing the brown algae go away. This is my first planted aquarium. I added plants and fish February 24th and I am hoping to create a carpet with the Marsilea.
