So my 20 long crashed not too long ago and I'm in the process of kind of redoing the whole thing. Purchased a planted+ led to go with the T8 6500k bulb currently in there, some new plants, and I'm going to try to do this more or less properly.
Currently just dosing with excel but I'll probably end up doing some CO2 here once I figure out how the plants are all doing.
So the tank as it stands at the moment (not the greatest picture, I'll take a better one with my better camera once I rearrange things.)
I've got a bit of a hair algae problem happening right now that I'm working on, plus there's some cloudiness from just changing the water, so, apologies for that.
Plants currently in:
Ludwigia glandulosa (or I'm just bad at identification and its A. reineckii)
Bacopa caroliniana (least I'm pretty sure that's the right bacopa)
Micranthemum tweediei 'monte carlo'
+1 rhizome from a buce I thought I killed but I'm crossing my fingers and hoping it recovers
on order (once they get here I'm going to trim up everything that needs it and rearrange things to be more pleasing.)
I will definitely be updating once I get the rest of my plants in and trim and rearrange everything.
Hygrophila sp 'araguaia'
+ several buce varieties
I think I want some Limnophila aromatica as well, but we'll see. As it is when everything fills in I may have to cull some species, but I'm kind of looking to get a very heavily planted tank.
Residents are going to be endlers & ramshorn snails. Possibly some shrimp, i haven't decided yet.
