This is my first tank, and I am super excited to post pictures of it! Posting pictures means 1. I finally remembered to bring my camera home to take a picture and 2. My tank is finally scaped and has some fish, so is worth sharing!
If anyone has any suggestions for improving the tank- getting it more balanced, or how to make the scaping look really good instead of just nice, let me know!
Sorry that the pic is kinda small... my camera does not take very good pictures. Hopefully I'll have a better camera soon to take better pics.
The goal is to have a tank that is low maintenance, fairly low tech.
Tank: 15g tall
Light: 20W of compact fluorescent (1 7W, 1 13W) 6500K on for 10hrs/day
Water changes: 20-30% every week or two
Ferts: ~10% of EI dosing
CO2: DIY CO2 with a Hagan ladder that is really slow... ~16-18 bpm.
Filtering: ~150 gph HOB filter.
Anacharis currently growing back from melting
Myriophyllum currently growing back from melting/being killed by hornwort
Bolbitis that finally decided to live
HC that is growing and hopefully eventually will carpet. I'm willing to give it some time.
Lots and lots of anubias (~15 plants of varying sizes)
A few floating plants (not sure species??)
Other living things:
2 guppies + 4 guplets
5 cory cats (was 6 but one got stuck and died today
6 red cherry shrimp + 5 shrimplets
Whole bunch of hitchhiker snails
On the sides, you can see my regular plants... which I still can't remember to water. Sigh.
Hopefully more pictures soon!
