Just wanting to upload some pictures and get some opinions to tell what others thing and maybe get some new Ideas about the tank.
Centre of the tank:
Right side of the tank:
Previously without the forground plant (I know it isn't a foreground plant really) and just some fast growing stem plants on the left as I was having an algae issue and I though they could suck up anything excessive and also grow to be used in another tank I was setting up for a friend. (it worked)
Anything I am missing. I assume when the Blyxa Japonica grows in more it will look fine in the tank. I have found issues everytime I grew foreground plants like hair grass and HC so I would rather not have a small plant that is harder to maintain and often gets algea with me.
50 gallon (90cm X 45 X 45)
CO2 on 1 hour before lights and off 1 hour before lights - pressurized
Ista Mix Max external CO2 reactor
Tetra EX Power 120 External Cansiter filter 1260L/hr
Lights 120 watts T8 (On 9 hours a day now)
Plants start pearling within the first 2 hours of lights on and continue until lights off(and after that)
No algea (we some green spots on the glass)
Ferts are PPS now, previous EI but I dropped down the lights from 180 watts and I wanted slower controlled growth.
Water changes still 50% weekly with treated water.
