First Planted Tank
So I’ve been into the hobby for about a year now. I’ll give you a little bit of background informantion on the tank. My girlfriend started the tank and just wanted lush plants. So we did a small amount of research and got aqua soil and fluorite, not nearly enough plants, some cycled media and thought we were off. Well she quickly fell into a bigger better position at work and no time. So I said I’d take over. This was about 2 months into the tank with little success. 2 more months go by with good progression and we split up and we both move. So I took the tank and this is where we are at today. A week after the move.
I’m not looking to spend an arm an a leg to get an amazing tank. I run a satellite led plus, diy co2 (citric acid), 2 Hob filters ( aquaclear70, topfin 50)
Lights on for 6.5 hrs a day and co2 is 24/7 I get a nice green on the drop checker. Air stone relief for 4 hours overnight.
Never really had a goal with this tank but it’s turned into a great learning experience. If there’s interest I will get into more details and pictures. I’m currently planning 2 20 long tanks out right now so I’m just looking to get my feet wet here. I’ll have to work on getting some more pictures taken.
