Finally! I have my lights at least operational, I havenít quite got them finished, but at least I can plant.
The housing is made from old pallet timber that Iíve stained. I like it.
I have planted the submerged part with the plants I have. I may well add more, but I want to see how they grow first. I will probably add some more terrestrial plants or epiphytes. I want to add some moss to the branches out of the water, but I want to rig a small pump to wet them first.
Next, I need to get some CO2 happening.
I was thinking of stocking congo tetras, but I reckon they are a little big for the space. I have very soft, neutral water out of the tap, so I mas a swell go with that. Iím thinking cardinal tetras and a couple of dwarf cichlids, maybe blue rams.
I think Iíll have to do that tomorrow. I think we are headed for a lockdown announcement tomorrow.
