5.4 ga "Red Stone Puffer Tank"
Started 1/1/15 as a tank for a dwarf puffer. This is a second no-tech project I wanted to try. Please critique my set up as I am a complete n00b.
5.4 Rimless tank from Aquatop
2 Deep Blue Solar Flare daylight LED, 6700 K, 3W
Substrate: mushroom compost, peat, ADA Amazonia
Petrified wood, rocks
Mini Rose Moss
pond snail hitchhikers
alternanthera reineckii mini
ramshorn snails (?)
1 (or 2?) dwarf puffers
3 Cherry shrimps (?) (optional)
Is it too much for this tank as well?
(still cycling, I did not have established tank so I used Nite-Out II)
pH (7.3) Ammonia (0) Nitrites (0) Nitrates (5)
Cycling so far
Day 1 pH (6.5), Ammonia (0.5) NitrItes (0.2) NitrAtes (7)
Day 3 pH (6.6), Ammonia (1.5) NitrItes (0.25) NitrAtes (10)
Day 7 pH (6.8), Ammonia (2) NitrItes (0.5) NitrAtes (5)
Day10 pH (6.8-6.9), Ammonia (1.5-2) NitrItes (0.75) NitrAtes (10)
Initial Set Up
Progress so far
