My first tank

Hi all,
Here’s some pictures of my first attempt at freshwater plants. I started it on November 05.
Its a 120 lit. tank that has 0,6W/lit. for 11 hours/day ( 2x30W Sylvania Gro), pressurized Co2, and a Eheim aquaball 2210 filter with sponges.

Plants :
Ludwigia repens
Anubias afzelii
Anubias barteri var. Nana
Anubias barteri var. nana 'Petite'
Riccia
Hydrocotyle leucocephala
Micranthemum umbrosum
Hygrophila corymbosa ''Compact''
Hygrophila difformis
Hygrophila polysperma 'Rosanervig
Heteranthera zosterifolia (Stargrass)

Fish
10Χ Otocinclus macrospilus
5x Cardinal Tetra
2x Apistogramma Macmasteri (1M +1F) and 12 baby’s macmasteri

I would appreciate any comment or suggestion.
Best,
Eva

Beautiful tank! Very impressive for a first tank! You must be quite artistic and had done a lot of...homework

I'm a newbie in plants, so can anybody comment on Eva's choice of plants for the level of the light?

I'm starting out with about 2W/gal too, and would be interest if Eva's plants would do well in the long run...I really like the selection.

Cheers,

Looking really good!! Can't wait to see it later on, when the plants are established.

Wow I've been keeping aquariums for over six years and plants for a couple years and you're first attempt is far better than my best work, haha. Looks great!

Great job as a start. I can recall how mine was a flop when i first started out. I will be waiting to see the tank transform as it matures and as you start shifting things around in time to come.

Thanks guys
Actually I have done most of my homework before the tank set up. Had a plan in my mind for the aquascape I want, but turn up to be entirely different from the actual one.
Now I m trying some glosso for carpet.
Best,
Eva
