Storrisch's 20g Long MGOCPS tank

I have started a number of recent MGOCPS tanks lately. This one was documented the most thus far.

Gravel w/ a penny for size reference


Laterite added before the soil to aid in iron loss


Soil added






Capped




Week 3....finally filled






Week 5....growth






This is a 20Long tank. DIY co2 from 3 2L bottles into a generic old powerhead intake w/ a hydor flo output. 2 24" T5NO bulbs run 10hrs a day at this point. not seen in the pictures is red root floaters and dwarf water lettuce. Most plants were provided locally, crispino ramos, or craigthor. There will be additional journals setup as soon as I feel like adding/taking pictures. Currently i'm also running 2 5.5g, 75g, 10g all MGOCPS.

Looks good! I would say move the stems more to the back and make a foreground!

it's a farm tank hidden in the bedroom so there is no aquascaping per say. Every group of plants has its own 4" radius to grow within before getting clipped.
