After a two years hiatus from fishkeeping, I decided to start getting back into it again. My previous tank was an ADA Mini-M iwagumi:
I picked up a 12 gallon Fluval Edge on impulse while browsing a LFS. The plan was to go low-tech and low-maintenance. Since I'm going with the stock LED light, this will be a low-light tank. However, I'll be using an Eheim 2211 canister filter that I had instead of the included Aquaclear HOB. The 2211 will be connected using some Cal Aqua Lab lily pipes and heated with a Hydor in-line heater.
The hardscape consists of one large Manzanita driftwood and ADA Seiryu stones.
Since this will be low-light, I decided to go with trident java fern as the main plant.
The tank will be fertilized every 2-3 days with Pfertz fertilizers that I had from before along with Flourish Excel.
The tank after planting and water added:
Pipes and filter:
After cycling, the first fishes added (also currently the only fishes) is a school of Corydoras habrosus
This is where the tank is at right now. The scape should look better when the java fern greens up and fills in more. I plan to add a few more stones to the front area and some more Mini Christmas moss.
The next livestock to go in will be a shoal of CPDs (my favorite fishes to keep) and a bunch of crystal shrimps.
I'll continue to update this thread with the progress.
Thanks for reading. All comments are appreciated!
