So the 10 gal is done and gone and now it is a 20L. Here are the first full day running pics. Details:
20 Long tank (Yey Petco for $1 a gallon)
Home made stand
Penguin HOB i think the 10 gallon size (temporarily there till i can get a canister)
Zoomed 501 to help with filtration
150watt Fluval heater
Elite Mini for co2 dispersion
Reef Fanatic regulator
Aquacave needle valve
24oz co2 paingball tank
Fluval bubble counter
3x18watt cfl bulbs in Ikea floor lamp fixtures white reflector (3 inches off surface total of 13 inches off lowest part of substrate. Can be adjusted )
Dirt capped with tahitian moon 60 percent or more already established in the 10 gallon for a month or more.
2 baby mollies
From left to right my names for the plants as best as i can remember
#1 - Not sure name - tall with thin leaves purple underneath
#2 - thin leaf anacharis
#3 - narrow leaf sword?
#4 - Cardamine
#5 - crypt parva
#6 - moneywart
#7 - java fern on rocks
#8 - assorted crypt
#9 - red ludwiga
#10 - banana plant
#11 - cardinal plant
#12 - Cardamine
Still adjusting co2 to get green checker.
Not sure if I need more light or less? Maybe someone can offer advice? I think this is solid med light but I'm wrong more often than I am right.
Scape is definitely not set but i wanted to cram as much as i could in there to help cycle the new dirt.
Here are the pics of each plant according to the list up top if anyone can correct me on names i would be super happy!
Of course thank you for helping! And suggestions /opinions are always welcome and considered!
If you have suggestions on changing the scape I'm very interested in that since this is very temporary.
My plan is for this to be a home for apistos (double or tripple reds or orange splash depending on what i can get) a harem maybe 1 or 2 males 3 to 4 females, 5 of the rasboras or small schooling fish (feather fin rainbows are nice or something small to dither for the apistos) suggestions are great for this.
What you think?
