I am totally new and learning, so suggestions/criticisms are welcome.
Started - January 1
Filter - Marineland HOB for now, getting an Eheim Friday!! (excited)
Lighting - 1x 65W Coralife
C02 - Dosing Flourish Excel for now
Ferts - Dosing regular flourish until I order dry bulk.
Substrate - Black onyx & Eco-Complete
January 1. Added substrate, found out what a huge mess it makes when just dumped in.
Filled up and ran the filter to clean things up. Added some hardscape.
Arranged that, and added some more Eco-Complete. I'm trying to do hills
Jan 3. Plant shopping
Still looked lacking.
Did a little re-arranging and added some stuff. Don't have nearly enough Lilaeopsis for the look I want, but that's all that had anywhere in town.
Jan 10. Found Celestial Pearl Danios at a pet store in the next town. Almost peed myself
Taking tank pics.
Nowwww I know I am completely new to this so if you have any plant suggestions, scaping suggestions, etc....throw them my way!
