Hi guys!
This is the first time I show make a journal so I hope you enjoy it :P

Lighting System: 2x30 watts (10 000 K and 6 500 K)
Filter: EHEIM CLASSIC 2213 PLUS - External Canister Filter
Substrate: Sera Super Peat + Bonsai Soil + Akadama
CO2 System: TMC V2 CO2 - 567g Pressurized CO2 System
Fertilization: NPK - DIY + Seachem Flourish + Seachem Iron + Seachem Excel

Flora:
Staurogyne repens

Crossocheilus siamensis: 3
Pterophyllum scalare: 2
Mikrogeophagus ramirezi: 2
Corydoras spp.: 1
Chromobotia macracanthus: 1



Everything was removed from the tank.



I confess my first experience with humus was great. I recommend it!


I like to try new things and make some experiences. That's exactly what I did! Bonsai Soil, Akadama and Peat.


I used old peat that was in my filter in order to have more useful bacteria in the substrate and some new.


Bonsai Soil as main substrate.


I used a net again to keep the substrates not mixed.





The layout was done!


Filling with cycled and new water.




I hope you like it my friends
If you go to my blog you will find a video 2 days after setup!

CHEERS
JANF

Looks nice so far, I like the rock layout. It should be very nice as it fills in, and your angel is beautiful!
