15 gallon Beijing tank

C02 with ADA Amazonia soil, a few soil tabs and no dosing, but thinking of doing some EI in the future as well as a major hardscape re-do. I find regular water changes keep everything happy. I'm using an AC70 on the back with a sponge covering the intake for a ghetto/shi**y feel. I have made no attempts to cover my unknown brand 50w heater, because F you.

I have always been partial to jungle/overgrown set-ups even though I do love some ADA inspired nature tanks. So this is more towards that original attraction. I decided to have a more jungle feel with small microcosm's of detail. It's very fun.

I keep a variety of flora and fauna:

plants: ludwigia repens, pearl weed, amazon sword for some drama, pennywort, christmas moss, something I'm forgetting....

fish: neons, lampeyes, otos, panda corys

Here is an out-of-date FTS photo that I will replace after I do maintenance again:

Here's a video that is more up to date for those with interest/patience:
