Alright first off I am going to let you know that I have never had a planted aquarium before... I have always love Cichlid tanks! but after a recent return from a deployment to Afghanistan I have decided it is time to get a hobby that will take up as much time as possible... LOL
Tank was set up yesterday I was way to into setting up plants and what not to be taking pictures... sorry but really you get to see all my hard work and ridicule me relentlessly.
I woke up this morning and looked at it and I like it. I dont like that it has to grow in... I want it to be a mature tank... NOW
here are some specs.
Tank: 29 Gallon
Lighting: 2x 10K 55W CFL
Substrate: Mix of older Aquasoil and new AZOO Plant Grower Bed
Plants: Here is where I am still learning. Can someone please help me out by Identifing my plants. I know I have some Christmas Moss and Narrow Leaf
Vals. but other then that I have no idea what plants are in there.
Creatures: 1 Otto, about 10 Ghost Shrimp, 1 CRS.
Filtration: Marineland C-160 (Listen I know it is not the Ehiem but I still like it, it works for me) lots of Bio filtration and filter sponges no carbon.
CO2: I have a legit regulator for a tank... but I have no tank. SOOOoooo Rockin an awesome DIY (works Alright I suppose) I just dont know if the CO2 that is produced is as good as CO2 from a tank.
Ferts: Pferts P, K, N, M. and Iron
alright that being said... I know my light fixture is super ghetto but it will have to work for now. until I make a light stand.
Be Honest with your opinion. Thanks!
