my first ever competition tank. crits welcome
hi guys i havnt posted in awhile since i didnt have much to post about and have had exams ect going on but in september last year i entered my first aquascaping competition, it only ran for about 3 months and i think it looked ok for my first sserious scape. it was kinda a trial run for a comp i'm entering this year that'll be similar low tech kind of setup just bigger, most of the components in this tank will end up in the new comp tank. so down to business...
std 1ft lid less
via aqua pf80 internal filter
small resun heater.
flame and christmas moss
small crypt (pls id if you can)
later microsword was added.
deltatail betta splendens
zebra nerite snail
so this was a comp for a low tech nano and it was alot more challenging than i thought it would be. i had a few problems with the pixie lillies losing leaves constantly and eventually fixed the problem with supplemntary root feeding. i added the microsword to hide the lily bulbs and the crypts were doing really well. about a month in i got 8 galaxy rasboras and i love them! they are such awesome lil fish and it was fun watching them grow and colour up since they where really tiny when i got them. i dosed daily with 0,4ml of excel and 1ml seachem ferts weekly and added a desk lamp for extra light. personally i love my scape even though i didnt win and it was great experience, my favourite part it the wooden ring with the anubias on it especially after i got rid of the moss.please feel free to make crits and comments as i'm trying to learn from this for the next comp.
i eventually had to put my delta tail in quarentine sine he got a fungus infection and put Kratos my double tail in there with the galaxies. so those are the last few. enjoy the pics they not very good i gota work on my photography skills too.
