Well in the process of setting up my 40breeder apisto tank I had my bare 10 gallon housing the only two fish that survived my move from NY to NC...a Betta and Cory cat. Was going to get some aquasoil and turn this into a shrimp/small fish tank once my 40 was going but I couldnt wait and jumped into this.
10 Gallon Petco Special
Fluval C2 filter (purigen and filter floss in media basket)
Stock hood with (2) 13 watt Fluorescent bulbs
78deg preset heater (forgot brand)
Walmart timer on lights
First photo is day one right after planting, photo two is 1 week later, photo three is 2 weeks after planting and a post to come tonight is from a re-arrange I did last night.
8hr photo period (increased to 8.5 last night...may do more pending plants)
Flourish (once week after water change)
Flourish Excel (once week after water change)
Flourish Iron (twice a week, water change day then half way through the week)
As of last night I decided to stop using Flourish and use Thrive instead. Been noticing some poor leaf conditions on the sag and new growth on the Reinecki Rosafolia being green. Read the Rosafolia is a nutrient hog so I may end up dosing a half dose of thrive half way through with the Flourish Iron.
-Purple Waffle (removed after a week in tank due to lots of rot, didnt know it was a non aquatic...petco...)
Cant believe how well the Lily and Lotus took off...the growth is incredible and will be moved to the 40b very soon. Hornwort and Anacharis has taken off as well and have been trimmed every week. Clippings hang out in the 40b for now.
Not sure what the future holds for this tank...Think im going to pick up a Spec III for an office tank and do a "pretty scape" in there to test the waters. May end up making this the pretty shrimp/small fish tank I had originally intended.
