Starting a tank journal here for my 35g corner tank. I want to eventually stock some shrimp and tetras. Exact varieties tbd
. Tank is 18” deep, lights are 2x 24” Sunblaster t5HO. Heater is a 300w, filter an aquaclear 70. Not planning on co2.
Planted December 1 2018 into BDBS.
2 Tropica cups of s. Repens, one cup flame moss, one bunch Vallisneria tort, and one more pot I can’t remember right now.
One cup of s. Repens was damaged when I bought it, but I got a good price on it and was told there was a chance it would survive.
December 2 picked up and planted some clippings of some Ludwigia super red 'mini' , Bacopa sp. compact, AR mini from @Quagulator
December 5. Made up 2 jars of liquid ferts with powders from ThePlantGuy. Macro’s using KNO3, K2SO4, KHP04, DTPA chelated 11% iron. Micro using his micro mix. I will be following the PPS-Pro schedule.
December 6. Water tests
Ph 8, Ammonia 8ppm, Nitrite 0.25ppm, Nitrate 0ppm. I did a 50%~ water change, ammonia is down to 2-3ppm.
New growth leaves showing on Ludwigia clippings.
Discount s. Repens is dead. Other plants are showing the expected melting.
