Adding Current pic first for interested parties
So I've (very slowly) been getting my tiny tank set up on my work desk. I've been a little shy about posting about it as I've never done anything this high tech before- it's exciting. As I've been stalking many a journal before this and and going to be asking a bunch of questions as issues arise I felt it was only fair if I posted my own journey.
So here we go:
Wave Point Daylight
Eheim Classic 150 filled with ceramic balls, filter floss, and purigen. fitted with Lily Spin pipe to help with flow
Cobalt Neo-them 25 Wt
Mix of Fluorite sand, Eco complete, and Fluorite shrimp substrate (what I had around my house from various other projects)
CO2 (coming soon) - CO2 art soda stream pressurized system
Dosing - Flourish tab (1 crushed) in substrate. Dosing EI Method once flooding occurs
My plan is a really densely planted tank with cherry shrimp and (once they are settled) a betta. My hope that the betta won't notice the shrimp with all the plants. However, if he does I've got another tank ready for him and this shall be a shrimp only tank.
Now into Pics (woop!) note: sorry about the dirty look of everything, the fluorite sand is a bit mudder than I was expecting...it settles quickly but it's smudged on the glass quite a bit. It should not be a problem once the tank is flooded.
Setting up hardscape:
Planted day 1 (Dwarf Baby Tears, Monte Carlo, Alternanthera Reneckii "mini", Lobelia Cardinalis, Hygrophila Corymbosa)
Day 8 (added Anubias nana to driftwood)
Day 14 (everything is filling in nicely, I'm ready to flood it as soon as CO2 regulator comes in)
Thanks for looking
