Back in the game again with a 5.5g tank!!!
I have not been lucky enough to have any longevity in my planted tanks, either due to algae, or death!
I started this tank out with Fluval Stratum for substrate. I used what i think was labeled dragon rock for the rock pieces, and last but not least staurogyne repens for carpet. I am really hoping they are as easy care as i read they are. I started this tank a month and a half ago using the dry start method and seen some good growth. The are growing taller, but also filling in gaps nicely. My though process on this was let it grow tall and fill in, then trim and replant.
For equipment currently i am using a sun-sun 602 cannisterfilter with ceramic media, carbon, topped with a layer of filter floss. (If you see any holes in media game let me know). For lighting i am using a wave point 12w led fixture (is this high or low light for 5.5g tank?).
I currently just filled tank with water, and have no live stock in tank. I am thinking shrimp of some sort, maybe a few tiny fish that will school?
I do have plans for co2, but currently not running any. I also have flourish excell, but not sure how or what to dose this tank. Please provide input on regimine. Anyhow here are some pics....
