So after five years I decided it was time for a rescape or at least some new plants
. Let's get the specifics over first.
Tank: GLA 120H
CO2: Victor 250 regulator. Inline Qanvee atomizer ( best inline atomizer I've had )
Filtration: Eheim 2075 X 2, lily pipes
Lights: Kessil A160WE Tuna Suns with spectral controller
Misc equipment: Aqua UV 15 watt sterilizer and Twinstar Nano+
Substrate: ADA Colorado sand
Hardscape: Manzanita and seiryu stone
It's an all epiphyte set up - narrow leaf java fern, java fern Phillipine mini, java fern trident, Bolbitis difformis, Bolbitis mini, four or five different varieties of buce, anubius nana petite, hygro pinnatifida.
First up just a scape only pic
And a planted mid-water change pic. I added 44 pots of plants and it still looks really bare. I guess I'll be picking up a few more pots. I still have a basketball size trident fern from my last set up in the holding tank with the fish so I think I'll add a bit more of it. Although I'd like to stay away from having so much of it as I've had for the last ten years.
I'm trying for some emersed growth from the bolbitis and hygro pinn on the left side.
