Hello everyone.

Starting up a lightly planted tank with DSM.
First time with a planted tank and DSM. It took a lot of patience but it was well worth it.

Heater: Hydor 200w in line
Substrate: AS I and AS I powder type.
CO2: VTS253A-1993,
ADA bubble counter, pollen glass type 3.
Flora: HC for the foreground, Staro Repens, more to come
Fauna: Apisto cacatuoides (1M,3F), M. Ramirezi (1M,1F)
NO JUMPERS!!!
Clean up crew: Typical stuff.

Sorry for the bad pictures.

What kind of wood is that?
Regarding the ohko stones, I'd either get more of them or leave them out altogether.

I'm not a fan of the stones being in there. I'd leave them out.

@Roybot73: Do not really know what kind of wood it is. I saw it at the LFS and pick it up.
Sad thing is I had to cut a bit of it off to fit it in there. Most of it was from the back of the center section.

@TLE041: I was thinking the same thing when I took the pictures. I'm heading to the LFS later this week to see what other pieces of wood I find. Once I get them I'll see about taking out the stones.

**TLE: I might see if I get some UG later this week or should I get some Glosso?
Like the way your set up came out.

Just start DSM today (bad job) hopefully something good comes out of it.
I'll keep you posted.

Again any advice from either of you or anyone else is appreciated.

Your water looks a little high in the front. Maybe try some 049 in the back, and let it grow tall. I like the wood, it looks different.

Thanks for the comment.
That's what I was thinking X. So, I put a dvd case under it to level it out.
I googled DSM and I saw a picture and it had a little more water in the front than mine.

049. Are you talking about Staurogyne repens.
Can you grow that one emersed? If so, I will go order some from the LFS this weekend.

Yes, you can. Check with Tom Barr. His staro rocks!

I noticed the carefully concealed coconut shell...

Planning on some Apistos to breed? Almost every tank I have has a carefully hidden cocnut or 2.

You need to change your location, NYC.

I like the wood a lot. I would tie the petite to the branches and let the HC take over. A few different plants for the rear to add some texture would look really good. +1 on the Staro. It such a beautiful plant and looks really good with HC. Check out my mini L thread. I started with HC and Staro. Maybe a little Polygonumsp Sao Paulo in the back right corner. That would look HAWT!

Keep the updates coming.

I saw that too. You should put some AS on it and make a HC cave. That would be sick!

Ento: Yes I will try to breed, apistogramma cacatuoides and maybe some ramirezi.
Hopefully it works out. Not a fan of having NEONS or tetras. Sorry.

Ant: Thanks man. I was born and raised in NYC, I just moved out here. But I'll change it if you like.

Should I pour it on top and then put some HC. Please explain better. Cause I would like a nice carpet over it.

Just took a look at your thread. It definitely looks good together.
May I ask how you plant the HC? Think I did it wrong. How many pots did you use?

Also Ant, that arcadea light is a US only light right? Cause the only one that I fould was the Arcadia 2x24w. I'm feeling that light.
