hello everyone this is my first journal. the tank has been running for about 2 months i just started taking pics now.for the sole fact my tanks always look like poop for the first month and a half and its quite embarrassing!
so onto the stats
the tank is a standard 20g el cheapo from petsmart
substrate is a mix of fluorite black,black sand and dark
the filter is eheim ecco 2232
the co2 is a hydor green nrg advanced regulator i got cheap a 35lb bottle i got from my work for free filled (the benefits of being a golf/country club chef) diffused through an upside down power head
the lights 2x24w t5ho on for 8 hours and 1 65w pc on for 3-4 hours
ferts are E.I.ish dosing kno3 kh2po4 k2so4 and csm+b 2x weekly
i just started dosing brightwell aquatics floranaxis
the flora is some basic beginner stuff dwarf hairgrass,aponogetons moneywort,dwarf sag,tiger lotus?,Blyxa aubertii, some unknown stem plant a guy at an lfs sold me he didn't know either java moss and what i think might be wysteria?
the fauna is about 40-60 caridina sp.dark green,4 caridina japonica,about 20 pond snails 1 small golden mystery snail and a bunch of creepy micro organisms
now please bear with me as I'm just figuring out how to insert photos I'm Internet incompetent.
