Please excuse the reflections from the other tanks and windows in my fishroom.
My intention is to eventually attempt a Dutch aquascape. I've been buying plants from TPT. Thank you! I think I now have too many...
For now, the plan is to try to be successful at growing plants to see how they grow and which species would be best suited for my D-scape.
Tank - 60" x 18" x 25"
Original Aquasoil - 2yrs old
Eheim 2217 and Marineland 360
C02 with reactor -1bps
AH T5's 10,000k 8 x 40 watts 3" above tank - 8hrs ( 22" to substrate)
pH 7.2, conductivity 210, temp 80F
No fauna except MTS and assassins
Will be purchasing dry ferts for EI dosing, but for right now I'm using up the Seachem samples I have. Flourish and Flourish Iron
Planned dosing regime: (will double it for 120 to start)
50% H20 change-weekly
3/4 Tsp-KN03 3x a week
3/16 Tsp-KH2P04 3x a week
1 Tsp-GH booster once a week
15ml 3/16Tsp-Trace 3x a week
4-8ml-Fe/Iron 3x a week
Should I get root tabs for the substrate since it's old?
Should I adjust the lighting to a lower level since wpg is now old school?
Should I put in more plants?
All help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
