Last pics of my 6 gallon...

These are the last of the images from my 6 gallon tank. I'm tearing it down in the next couple of weeks to upgrade it to a 20 long

It currently houses cherry shrimp, tiger shrimp, and B. merah.

Plant wise, it has:
A. nana 'petite'
C. wendtii
java fern
moss ball
microsword
nana vals
and E. parvifolia 'tropica'

The tropica was just added today to hold it till I get the 20 long.

It used to have a 15 watt flourescant strip, and a 15 watt actinic bulb. I changed it today to a 24 inch T5, wth 28 watts of light. I know that's alot, so it's raised about 5 inches above the waterline until get the 20

pics..

Nope...no Co2. It's been growing for about 3 months+ with just the 15 watt flourescant bulb. I was trying to save money, the bulb actually belongs on a 10 gallon, but it was all I had...lol

The only fertalizing I do is a few drops of flourish twice a week.

Yep, that's the petite that they're on.

I'll post it up tonight on the other forum...I hafta resize the images first...lol
