Evoz's 422 planted tank.

Hey guys, its been a year since i quitted planted tank.. came back with a 4x2x2ft tank.. Do give me advise along the way. thanks.

my list of equipments :

tank : 120x60x60
filtration : Hagen Fluval Fx5(2300l/hr) + SunSun 3000l/hr wavemaker.
Lighting : Aquazonic 54x4 T5HO
Substrate : 45L of AquaticStyle Concept soil
Co2 system : 5L tank + Solenoid via Glass diffuser(placed under wavemaker)
Fertilizer : LUSHgro AQUA macro and micro.

Since LUSHgro aqua macro dosn't contain PO4, bought my own dry form of KH2PO4.


This 2 pics should be my final placement, need some advice.

This placement with the left wood included


This placement without the left wood, feels abit empty.. hmm...

That's an awesome piece of driftwood. What types of plants are you going to attach to it.

We don't have lush gro in america. Is it a good product?

ridewake210, If you look in the lower left corner there is a small piece of driftwood partially obscuring the filter intake. In the second picture it is absent. Please pat yourself on the face...with your fist...for being stupid.

That being said, I'd say leave it there EvolutionZ. With a small anubias attached it will do a good job of obscuring the intake from the front view.

Also, I love the dimensions on that tank.

what plant i have in mind is :

Foreground : HG or HC
mid ground(in between driftwoods and near DWs) : Downois, UG and narrow leaf java fern to put in between DWs.
Driftwood : some christmas moss will be tied but not totally covering all the wood.
Back ground : mainly rotala 'green' and didiplis diandra.

Lushgro is a product of singapore.. been in SG for many years, im not too sure if its a good product but being able to survive in SG market for many years, i wont dare say its not good.

i was initially thinking he might be trying to say the left wood makes no difference.. haha.. actually the stem plants im going to plant will cover the intake also..

Ok, that comment wasn't exactly constructive, but I nearly threw up it made me laugh so hard.

I like the first one, but then I'm trying to make a conscious effort in my own tanks to remember to leave room for the fish to swim, LOL!

updates... tiring day today..

5 packs of 9KG/L each of Concept soil arrived this morning..


was drooling all over when i read this book!


some plants i bought from LFS, still lack of quite alot though..


soil in and wood partially tied with taiwan moss.


woah.. super tiring after planting roughly 10 pots of HC and 3 pots of HG.


5 pots green and 5 pots red stem plants.. any ID?


my FTS.. tank is cloudy cause my filter spew out lots of dirt and planting stir some soil as well.. what's worst i accidentally broke my Fx5 fastener.. hope i can get a spare part for it.. so right now no filtration yet.. got to wait till tomorrow at least..


Shall update again.. will be adding E.tenellus to plant inbetween HC and DW, some short narrow leaf javafern and bolbitis to place in between DW, and more stem plants..
