Hello everybody. I should have said hello when a registered a week ago but I didn't think I had much to show. I'll give it a go.
Coralife 30" with Colormax and 6700k
sand from home depot
HOB Aqueon 30
wisteria, western milfoil, l. repens, giant hair grass, swords (unsure species)
6 glowlight tetras, 3 otocats, 4-5 ghost shrimp
cheapo for a 10 gallon (room temp keeps at 75 -77F but i keep it in for colder nights)
I've been keeping fish and plants, nothing rare or requiring too much care, for a couple of years, but as I've been moving around a bit I haven't been able to see any of my low tech scapes mature. Now that I'm in a stable place, I decided I would try again in my new location. Yet after a disaster from Camallanus nematodes brought in by petco bought guppy, I've been sitting and waiting a month and half till the worms life cycle is complete and any remaining worms have died. On monday is when I can introduce new plants, fish, and/or inverts.
My plants are wimpy as they're missing the fish poo for fertilizer.
I'm thinking of getting just 3 cories or so and building up to a larger school. Then some harlequins later on. Thanks for viewing! I'm open to suggestions as well.
