Hello everyone. I'm new here and figured I would start my journal for my first tank. I've Been interested in this hobby for awhile now. Finally bought a set up in craigslist for cheap. Came with the 14G tall tank, filter, heater, air pump, net, and suction tube. With help from my LFS I decided to only use the tank and filter as the heater was insufficient for this tank and also pretty old.
Currently I have no organics in the tank. I started by getting the tank cycles and getting the hardware set-up. So far I've brought a water sample to be tested for free at my LFS. Test came back great except a slightly high pH which I'm not to worried about yet because im still going to be adding some drift wood.
I'll be adding some pictures along the way to let keep up with it.
The water im told is cloudy because a bacteria bloom but should go away.
I've built a custom light set-up for a single t5 bulb. Definitely going to be low tech.
