48l "This tank is not yet rated" ;)

Hi

This is my small iwagumi project with low light. Layout isn't very important(as you see this is nothing "fresh" ), for me more important is keep plants/water parameters in good condition.

Dimensions: 64x30x25 cm 48l [12.6gal]
Lights: 18W Philips TLD 965 (9.5 hrs/day) [1.4WPG]
Filtration: AquaClear 150
CO2 injection: pressured
Parameters: KH 4, GH 6, pH 6.8, NO3 2-4, PO4 0.1-0.3
Fertilisation: TMG, PGP Hydro-minerals
Water change: 5l past 3days
Water temp: 24C
Plants: Java, Stringy moss, eleocharis

Picture before first trimming Day 32

Nice tank, whats with all the same kind of layouts? They all look nice, I think that the 2 larger rocks in the back should be removed or one remove. Other than that, it looks great.

Then it will be look sucks

Like i said..this is nothing fresh, this kind of layouts was made thousend times. I know that should be more space between this two groups of rock but if i do that i should remove eleocharis. This is only one bulb on 30cm deep tank so layout dependet on light. If i put there two bulbs i can do everything...but this was too easy . I made all (from clean glass) in about 3h (more of this time i was playing with moss and water). I just wanted test how will be grow eleocharis with low light, also i test fertilizer rutine with low light, CO2 and small bio-mass.

Totally agree with the last speaker, beautiful simplistic aquascape.
Ill be setting my tank up in about a month after moving. I hope I can get something that looks remotely this good, but im sure I wont be able to show it in such a good photograph.

Heh...i forget about this thread . This tank wasn't classic layout, this was experiment with eleocharis in medium/low light. Eleocharis was in very good condition and grow very well (maybe grow slow but...)

This tank doesn't look like this anymore...

Some pictures before i terminate my "experiment".

Nice photography skills, but kind of repetitive...just to be honest.

Re-boot!

How many times i must wrote that this tank is "experiment" with light, ferts and CO2........
Of course i could plant eleocharis in gravel without any hardscape but i do everything as "perfect" as i can. Even when i will setup tank for breed fish it will be made like tank for contest Every photo sesion rise photography skills so i shoot as many as possible....
