Nano 8G (fluval)

I started this tank one month ago. I am now waiting for the eleocharis to grow and I may rearrange plantation then.

I am also going to remove he Co2 diffuser provided with the fluval flora kit because it is quite big... Flourish Excell would do the job instead.

Specs:
dim= 30x30x35cm - 7,9G
fluocompact : 26W
Fluval internal filter
Elite MINI Submersible 50Ws Heater
substrate = Fluval stratum
CO2: DIY - Flourish Excel
Ferts: Tetra Flora pride
T=22C
pH=6,8


Flora :
cryptocoryne wendtii
hydrocotyle leucocephala
rotala rotundifolia
eleocharis parva
anubias barteri nana

Fauna:
red cherries shrimps+ Danio margaritatus (microrasbora galaxy)


A few pics:
