Figured I should start journaling before I get too far along even though itís not much to look at yet. After about 10 years away from the hobby, Iím starting a 75g planted and for the first time will be doing injected co2. Iím also planning a fairly complex diy led lighting system using reef-pi. But for the moment, as I am waiting for parts and plants to arrive, Iím doing no co2, low light and just started dosing pps-pro for the couple of plants I have now (1 ml / 10 gallons macros, 0.5 ml/10 gallons micros every second day).
Fish: Four pearl gouramis, 2 Chinese algae eaters, 12 neons and 2 snails (nerite I think).
Plants I believe althernathera reinckii, bacopa, and amazon swords. (Corrections welcome)
Substrate Fairmount pool filter sand with a topper of natural gravel.
Filtration Fluval 404 canister. Will be adding a uv sterilizer and additional internal filter when they arrive for more circulation and filtration.
Just measured the lux at substrate level and itís about 1800 with my current dual 36Ē T8s (thatís measuring through air so probably a bit less through water. )
