First attempt at Aquascape! 64Litre Low-Tech
As the title suggests this is my first attempt at an aquascape. I've never even had any live plants so I'm heading straight for the deep end in a heavily planted tank! Its a 64 litre bowfront with an eheim eco pro 130 filter (Overkill I know), also have a hydor inline heater to install. So far all I have in the tank is some driftwood covered in java moss, some annoying white fungus and some random unnamed grass plants (Maybe dwarf sag) that I regret buying as I don't know what they are. During this week I shall be adding:
Rotalla Indica, and various other foreground plants that knowing my luck with fish related things will most likely die/go wrong anyway! I'm using Seachems flourite black sand/grit, I know some of these plants require co2, but I'll give it a go anyway. I have no idea how bright my light is, all I know it is a LED as pets at home (Not sure if I'm allowed to say that?) didn't say in the booklet. Tank contains 11 (unfortunately it looks soon to be fewer) neon tetras, 4 endlers, 4 cherry shrimp, a hill stream loach (that I wasn't told the requirements before I bought it,) 1 assassin snail and various intruders. Sorry for the long post! I will keep posting pictures of the progress! Thanks for reading!.
