30 Gallon Cube
A Little History:
I set this tank up at the beginning of September and ran it “dry” for a two months, attempting to establish a immersed HC/Riccia and Microsword carpet. I was pleasantly surprised with the results as it filled in quite quickly, the HC anchored the Riccia to the ground as it sent out runners and the Riccia grew through the HC to make a nice mixed, and might I say cushy looking carpet.
I wish I had a camera at my disposal to document the growth, as I was astounded at how fast the plants grew. Regardless though I am very happy with the results.
Filled at the beginning of December:
30-Gallon Oceanic Cube
96W 20” Corallife PC
40W 20” Corallife PC
Flourite Black Sand
2 doses of Flourish a week.
No CO2 (one of the reasons I like immersed growth, once established, HC is a very easy plant (in my opinion) as long as you have the nutrients and light to sustain it.
Hemianthus callitrichoides, riccia fluitans, Blyxa aubertii, Lilaeopsis brasiliensis, Cyperus helferi
20+ Emerald Eye Rasbora (Form B), 4 Peacock Grudgen, 5 Bumblebee Goby, 20+ Amano Shrimp
