So, I finally flooded this thing, and my adventure into high tech has begun! My carpet didn't really spread much in the month it had to grow, but it's rooted well, so I'll take it. Also, my wife's grandpa is making an L for my desk, which is where this tank will be...but this is taking forever, so I just stuck it on a random piece of furniture from the porch! (woohoo impatience) Anyway, the setup went ok, due to the height of the current stand, my hoses are longer than necessary and tend to try to kink, but it's working. Also, thought I broke my regulator from GreenLeaf initially, but it's working today, so I guess we are good...
Anyway, here's the full tank shot!
Pardon, the diffuser being in the middle of everything, going to move that over during tomorrow's water change. As you can also probably tell, I ended up removing a lot of rocks and driftwood because I didn't like how much it restricted the number of plants I could fit. I also ordered too much AR mini, so it's kind of everywhere right now. But anyway, plant list thus far is...
Bucephalandra hades (yay free samples)
Pogo helferi is on the way
I am planning on getting some Fissidens Fontanus and gluing it to the three rocks on the right. Also, taking votes for what to put in the back left corner. My two favorites right now are Ludwigia arcuata and Rotala wallichii. But, I am open to any other suggestions! Hope you guys like it, can't wait for things to start growing!
