Finally set up my Christmas present.
It's an Oceanic 50G, DIY stand, Eco-Complete, XP-3 filter, 65W aqualight (from my 20g, 130W unit on the way ), DIY CO2 currently with Hagen ladder ( will set up inline reactor later this week ) 150W EJ heater.
Flora: Most of the plants from my 20G, Moneyworth, Ludwigia Repens, Wisteria, Crypt Wendtii (?), Microsword, Java and African Fern, Italian Vals ( still not sure on that one ).
Added more Wisteria, Corkscrew Vals, Cacomba and Java Moss. I still have two Anubia Nanas ( One large and one small ) in the 20G and don't know if/were to place them.
Fauna: As of this morning, 11 regular and orange White Clouds, 6 Neons, 3 Glowlight Neons, 2 Albino Cories, 2 2" SAE, 1 Otto and a 3" Pleco. I'm planning to add in the next month 2 female Bettas, 4 Dwarf Gouramis ( 2 Neon Blue and 2 Flame ), 3 more Ottos, and possibly in a couple of months another 6 Neons.
When should I start dosing nutrients?
Any comments, suggestions and recommendations?
DIY stand & tank;
I ran the tank empty (except for the wood) for 4 days with ceramic rings from the 20 ( 2 weeks of soaking as well as in the filter) to get some bacteria started;
As of last night prior to adding the fishload from the 20;
