On a infinity stand

Lighting
-Odyssea quad light unit
-1x red Sylvania t5
-3 x 6500K white t5

Substrate
-Some Leca
-Ada aquasoil

Ferts
-Scape complete
-Seachem flourish

co2
-pressurised co2
-inline diy reactor

Filters
-Sicce whale 500 canister filter

Re did my whole tank about 2 weeks ago so will post one old photo and start off with the new scape


This is the old scape.


Got my leca used in hydroponics


Just an idea of how much leca i added


Leca helped to make a hill at the back


Wood added and dragon rock added


Now the wait for the plants to grow in.

Great start! Have you used Leca before as a base substrate? Looks interesting, almost like akadama.

A friend of mine used it in his 120p and it works very well for him so far.
