Spec's second attempt at a dirted tank
So Im giving the dirted tank a second go. The first attempt I had was pretty bad. It was a 26 gallon bowfront and I had no idea what I was doing so it ended up failing and having to be torn down. Now this time hopefully will be a little diferent since the tank is much smaller and I think I know what I am doiing.
Tank-Fluval spec V(I siliconed the two holes in the backchamber)
Substrate/hardscape-MGOCP and quikrete all purpose sand/mopani wood
Light-Finnex fugeray 16"
Heater-Not really sure some random one I had
Flora/Fauna-Dhg,Java fern,Various crypts(havent decided on what kind),anubias nana petie, Probably some type of moss havent decided/Stocking will most likely be rcs with either celestial pearl danios or chili rasboras, Or i possibly will have a dwarf pea puffer or two.
This tank is going to be low tech but I may end up adding excel at some point. Im hoping the dhg will carpet eventualy but I guess we will have to see. I was going to have some stone that I got from a stream as the hardscape but they bubbled like crazy during a vinegar test so I resorted to petsmart driftwood Also does anyone now how to make the top of the backchamber shrimp safe?
