Wanted to get a journal started for the first time.
Some details on the tank
Tank: ADA 60p
Filter: eheim 2215
Lighting: Radion xr15 freshwater (Default on this forum helped me schedule using ecosmart live, currently running at max 65% intensity, 8 hrs photoperiod, for the first few weeks)
Heater: Hydor inline 200 watts
CO2: GLA Gro regulator, 5lb tank, Atomic inline diffuser (1 bps at the moment)
ADA Drop Checker
Substrate: 2l ada powersand, 9l ada amazonia, 3l ada amazonia powder
DHG around the rocks and driftwood
Hoping to start an HC carpet on the right side
mini xmas moss tied to the rocks and branches
Future I plan to add giant hair grass to the back area behind the wood
Any tips on some good ferts to look into for the above plants?
on this. Thinking of a school of green neons, but may end up doing cardinals or rummynose. Haven't decided but want something different so any suggestions appreciated.
I've considered lemon tetras as well. Or axe the tetras and go with forktail rainbows (a LFS has these currently).
Would like a pair of either Blue Rams or some type of apistogramma - haven't decided yet.
Clean up crew I'm thinking zebra otos and shrimp. I like CRS', but thoughts on something different?
Hoping to get some glass lily pipes after xmas. Possibly down the road go with an APEX Jr. to control temperature, ph, c02 and lights. However, right now using ecosmart live for the lights, a timer for the co2, and a drop checker works pretty good.
Thoughts/ideas for plants, fish and scape welcome.
I'll do my best to keep the journal updated as I progress. I have never worked with LEDs before, so I'm sure I'll be doing a lot of customization to the lighting as I learn.
Sorry for the bad cell pic, did this quickly last night. Will upload some more as the tank progresses.
