This is my first planted tank ever. So I've decided to start a journal on it. Advice is welcomed because I know jack about this. Learning as I go.
Here is the tank after the initial setup just over 1 month ago.
Marineland C-220 filter
Nova Extreme T5HO with 10k/freshwater bulb
Flourite substrate - 3 bags, but I might remove some for scaping purposes.
The next picture is the tank 3 weeks later with 4 Black Neon tetra, 5 Neon Tetra, and 1 Algae Eater (which probably will not stay)
Now here is the tank 6 weeks after initial start planted.
The plants have only been in the tank since Friday and I need to pick up the proper nutrients. Currently only have Flourish Excel but I know I need others, but not sure what I need. I also need to get a good test kit, which I will be picking up today.
1 Red Rubin
1 Ruffled Sword
1 Hornwort - debating on using this
2 Lily - These will go in the back for the Dwarf Gourami that is coming soon
1 Java Moss
And one Moss Ball.
