New to the planted scene
Its a fluval Curve 87 litre (really 106 litres after measuring)
Ive removed the light to replace it with the following pattern. These are MakeMyLED lights from a group in Western Australia.
I originally set the tank up with some Gold Vine wood, but didn't like the fungus consuming and killing the plants. I also had way too much aquasoil in there
So after 4 weeks, I tore it down and started again. and ditched the piece of wood for anther stone.
This time I set up the tank with:
Fluval 306 with lilly pipes and converted hosing
mechanical filter, and packed it with ceramic bio media
inline Co2 diffuser
Hydor 200w inline heater
UV sterilizer (had one laying around thought why not - thoughts?)
Dwarf Echinodorus Parviforus
Sagittaria subulata (small and large)
alternanthera reinckii mini
micranthemum monte carlo
some random crypts
This was just after planting. about 2 week later the tank completed mini cycle (disturbed the peace).
So I added:
10 neon tetras
3 cherry barbs (will find them some wives soon)
a small bristlenose pleco (is this a bad idea)
a white cloud came along
planning on getting some oto's and maybe something else, but will wait for the plants to establish a little more
The tank parameters are
Nitrate: under 10ppm
Co2: 22-30 ppm
I need to tidy up the back of the tank, or hide it with some large plants so i'm welcoming any suggestions. as well as opinions on the setup.
