Michiba's first planted tank, 20 long.

Hello, this is my first planted tank... not much, but I thought i'd share the progress with TPT. I planted it on 3/22 for the record.

- AC50 filter
- Thyeo 50w heater
-30'' Aqueon T5NO Dual Lamp (6.7k & colormax). I used Hagen GLO mounting brackets to suspend it about 2-2.5 inches off the top an 8hour photo.
- 40lbs of Flourite


- Dry dosing

1/8 tsp KNO3 (N) 3x a week
1/32 tsp KH2PO4 (P) 3x a week
1/32 tsp CSM+b 3x a week
1/4 tsp GH booster after weekly w/c ( GH is 0 out of the tap...)

- Excel 3mls at night.


Anubias barteri var. nana
Bacopa australis
Bacopa monnieri
Ceratopteris thalictroides (C. siliquosa)
- Cryptocoryne wendtii 'Red'
Gymnocoronis spilanthoides
Hygrophila difformis x3
Glossostigma elatinoides
Didiplis diandra

None at the moment.

now without further adieu... some pics

I think my glosso might need to be planted better, an the star grass looks like it turning brown... also think my heater might be bothering that stringy green thing (water sprite?) but other then that I think I might succeed

Probably gonna add more foreground plants next, but wanna see if I can keep these alive first.

That is about it for the moment... comments, suggestions, high-fives?
