15 gallon rimless.A New Beginning.

Hi All,


Pretty new to planted tanks as this is my second tank. Purchased this thank at a LFS for cheap as it was listed 20% of due to a small chip at the bottom corner. Decided to pick it up since I got a tank for the office and all I think about is that tank. So picked up a tank for the house.


Tank: 15 Gallon Rimless
Filter: AquaClear
Substrate: Mr. Aqua Azoo & Mr. Aqua Shrimp

Had a half a bag of Mr. Aqua left over from my 6 gallon at work, bought another bag and it still wasn't enough. Really like the Shrimp substrate because it was fine grain. Tank was cloudy for a day

Plants: Glosso, Micro sword, Java ferns, Various Anubias

Wanted to pick up HC like my other tank but LFS ran out, and as HC isn't carpeting in my other tank, I thought I'd try out some glosso.

Light: FishNeedIt 24 inch 2 X 24 watt atinic 1000K

Might be changing the light to one bulb as two bulbs might be over kill. Maybe I should change it to a single 6500K bulbs. Please give me your thoughts on it.

Co2: Diy

Shown is my Day 1 and 2 pictures. (Photos taken from iphone)
Really like how the water has cleared up. Please five me some input or advice, I'm open to suggested as I'm anubias when it comes to planted tanks. Also, I've posted 2 pictures from my first tank, and noticed that this algae on my HC, is this a good or bad thing? What can I do to treat it, will it go away eventually. It's in a fluval edge with diy co2, regular halogen lights with 13 w compact lights over head. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.


Regards,
Phil
