Post 15g planted tank aquarium

Hey everyone,

So while waiting for all my accessories for my 120p ADA tank to arrive, I was running a bit impatient and thought why not do another small aquarium to spend some time on till all orders for the 120p arrive.
I went and bought a 15g tank, and the accessories required for this tank is available so I don't have to order and wait.
Equipmet:

Tank:
50Lx32Wx35H rimless china made tank

Filter:
SunSun HW-302 Filter(I think this might be a little overkill for a 15g?)
Using lily pipe on the out going
Using the sprayer that came with the SunSun filter for the inlet(to reduce the flow a bit)

Light:
Aqua Zonic Super Bright extendable(Not even sure if this is a good light, got it to test it out)

Soil:

Some local(Dubai) Gravel brand(bought it by the Kg and didn't ask for brand name)
ADA Aqua Soil Amazonia

Hard Scape:

Petrified wood 2x
River Wood 1x

Plants:

HC Cuba
Christmas moss
Cardamine lyrata
Anubias Sp. Nangi
Water hedge(Didiplis Diandra)
And some more plants that I don't know the names of lol


Co2:

Getting an industrial 4kg cylinder
Haven't decided on the regulator yet
Using a disposable co2 can from waterplant atm(Can't get the 4kg cylinder till sunday)

So that's about it for now, I'll keep this journal updated whenever I add or change something in this tank.

Thanks for the read!




This is the light(if anyone knows anything about it let me know, couldn't find much on the net)


After planting it randomly

Filled with water

The water cleared up, I've also added an IKEA lamp with 40w light bulb and 6500k.
Tomorrow the Co2 system is coming in and getting rid of this disposable can.



Also does anyone know anything about this sort of Co2 systems if they actually do anything or they're just waste of money


Because once getting my proper Co2 system tomorrow, I was thinking to use on Co2 can on my 2g tank.

Thanks for the read

I've never seen that before. How is the C02 regulated out of the can?

I would stick to your pressurized unit you have coming in and maybe buy a manifold to run both or all your tanks off of it.

It's not regulated, it works like a spray can, the small tube connects to the can and to the diffuser(Not actually a diffuser), they call it a diffuser but it's an upside down cup that you hang inside the tank, you press the spray can and the cup fills up with Co2, it gets diffused in water by pressure, every few hours I respray the can to refill the cup with Co2, but it takes while till it diffuses this way. maybe for a nano tank it'll be enough but for this tank it's not.

Nah these nano tanks will be moving out of here soon, one is going to my desk at office, and the other one will probably go downstairs in the living room or something. Depends if I was able to convince wifey about that though, coz the 120p ADA that I'm gathering to set up at the living room has already started bothering her lol. Maybe the kitchen will be a good place for for the 1.5g lol!
