Yianni's 6G Edge (Pic heavy)
So this is my setup:
-A Marimo ball that was split up to be attached to rocks, did not work out so i have them just lying around
-2 happy shrimps
-2x 3-bulb LED mini-strips (3W each)
Total output : ~10W
-Superior gravel substrate (not Flourish)
-I have Flourish and Flourish excel but will wait for other plants
-Added 2 flourish root tabs to help out my lilaeopsis that seems to be doing better
(the diffuser is at the bottom of my filter box)
I am well aware I must spray coat my MR11s! will do so REALLY shortly.
This is my first time aquascaping. Been having lots of difficulty. Had a pond snail infestation, could not bring myself to dispose of them in most of the ways people were suggesting, so i have another fluval edge with my betta, my neon tetra and like 40-60 snails!
I am going to add: small piece of driftwood for my 4x java ferns coming and some anubias. I will then start fertilizing the water column. I am also going to place everything towards the middle area where the light is concentrated since I am aware I am not hitting the 0.5W/G threshold. I do not want to change lighting too much so as to keep tank looking sleek. Do you think adding those low-light plants will force me to increase lighting, or will the fact they are placed in the middle compensate?
Any advice for me (being a beginner) is truly appreciated. I will post updates!
