Hello! This is my 1st posting here so I hope I put it in the right forum.
Month ago I decided to build a planted tank. I already have 2 malawi tanks and now I decided to try planted one
So here is what I have so far:
I already bought 150L(90x40x40) tank with pump, heater and substrat.
Some driftwood. I wanted better but this is the best I got:
Some blue foam for mechanical filtering:
Timers for lamps and CO2:
Pipes, termometers and other small stuff:
Pressurized CO2 system:
And black sand 2-3mm:
I'm waiting for my stand which I receive on monday. It is made from 35mmx35mm steel and will be coated in wood. Will post pictures later. I also receive light this week. I ordered 4x39W T5 lamps with 1x grolux, 2x daylight and 2x aquastar(10000k) lamps). That produces about 1W/l of water.
I also love fish so I decided to put 30-40 wild caught red neons(Paracheirodon axelrodi). What do you think?
I tried to read as much articles and forums on the internet as possible. What do you think. Did I do any mistakes, what would you change,...
And now the plants
I was thinking of putting Valisneria all over the background, anubis and javan(Vesicularia dubyana), on the ground I would put a carpet from riccia(Riccia fluitans).
What do you think of my project?
BTW, pictures from this tank/project and other projects are also on my site http://digital.planetq.org/akvarij
