Okay I have recently bought obtained a fluval flora and I set it up on and planted it November 9, 2014. I am running two fluval mini compact florescent lights. One on for 5 hours and both on together for 1 hour a day for 6 total hours of lighting. I have the fluval 88g co2 system running for about 3 hours a day. For filtration I am using the fluval internal nano aquarium filter that is rated for up to 15 gallons.
The substrate is fluval stratum and sand I collected myself from a beach. I thoroughly wash it and made sure it was tank safe. Today i just added 4 fluval root tabs under the crypts, swords, sag and baby tears.
Plants i have chosen are rotala rotundifolia, vesuvius swords, anubius nana, dwarf sag, star grass, ludwigia repens, baby tears, and ammania gracilis.
Right now all the plants are doing great except for the ludwigia repens. If it doesnt work out i will just fill the area in with stargrass which is growing quickly or fill it in with rotala.
Hard scape material i am using are fake molded rocks from universal rock and a piece of Malaysian driftwood.
Stocking- Neocardina shrimp.
