CAD Lights 7 GALLON ZEN Low-iron Seiryu Stone iwagumi journal

After about 2 moths of testing the DIY 15W LED light for this tank, finally, I start to set up an iwagumi. I had been into this hobby for a few years. Just grow plant most of the time, but never really try to do a scape, so this is my first one. LOL


Equipment:
Tank: CAD Lights 7G 16"(L) x 10"(W) x 10"(H) (Low-iron)
Light: DIY 15W 3014 LED 6500K
Substrate: ADA aqua soil Amazonia normal
Hard Scape: Seiryu Stone
Filter: Eheim 2232
CO2: 5lbs tank with Archaea dual guage solenoid (1 bps)
Fertilizer: ADA step 1 (2 pump daily)
PH: 6.7-7.0
TDS: 170
Heater: I am currently using the jebo 50w heater now, but will replace it with a hydor inline heater 200w.
Tank set up date: 10/24/13
All plants are from the testing period of the diy 15w led on this tank.

Plant:
cuphea anagalloidea
Bacopa salzmannii
rotala sunset
Hygrophila Pinitifida
Alternanthera Reineckii "mini"
Alternanthera Reineckii variegated
mini christmas moss
Star Moss

Beautiful moss - almost makes me want to set up a paludarium to house it. How long do you plan to keep it there?

It's not aquatic and will die if you leave it in there.

I got it two months ago. It grows very well in the tank. I will leave it there at this time and see how long they can last.
