Finally I got around of making a journal for this tank. It's been going for a while but plants weren't doing good at all except moss. I added a bag of flourite yesterday, I never thought it would be that messy even after rinsing it this is what my tank ended up as
This is after couple of hours so it not as bad, when i just added the flourite it literally looked like this water in the bucket after rinsing it like 30 times
Good thing I removed my cherry barbs when I realized it will be messy. My poor barbs are in my 2.5g nursery, not for long only until I plant everything and get it looking somewhat decent, which should be done tomorrow.
Here is a little more info on the tank:
The tank is 14g tall
Substrate is flourite mixed with regular gravel (I think I might have a little too much gravel in there... )
Lightning is fluorescent hood that came with the tank
Power sweep power head
I'm planing to have more moss than anything in there but will have some plants.
For now there is some water spryte or whatever left from it
Wisteria or whatever left from that one (I really hope that with flourite they will come back)
And the other plant I am not sure whats the name of it.
Current mosses are:
I really want some Christmas moss for a moss wall and fissidens fontanus because I have a nice manzanita branch in the shape of a tree so I think since fissidens do get attached to wood it will be perfect for a tree
6 Cherry barbs
Possibly some CPDs
Here is a picture taken today I tried to fix gravel and planted some plants in. But this is temporary spot for them until tomorrow. Please don't mind the dirty glass and the substrate, it will be evened out.
Is it too much substrate???
I have a nice piece of mopany wood with flame moss attached to it.
It needs a big trim before going back into the tank. I also have a small Taiwan moss wall that could be going in there it might be need to be replanted first tho.
So this it is for now I will be working on the tank tomorrow and hoping to post some more pictures.
Any suggestions and comments are always welcome
Thanks for looking
