Hello all I finally got time to start this thread on my finnex!
To begin with here are the "specs"
1 x 26 watt CFL bulb
2 X LED Moonlights
1 X 26 watt full spectrum desk lamp (spotlight treatments)
ADA Aquasoil Amazonia I
(want to get some sort of moss or riccia incorporated in the future)
Glass Bubble Counter (still waiting for it)
Smart Parts On/Off Valve
Nano CO2 Glass Diffuser
None yet but will be putting shrimps & otos but I still haven't decided on what kind of fish. (Dwarf Puffers or Tetras, can't decide!)
Here are a couple of pics to start this journal. I setup the tank around Sunday and when I barely set it up the water was crystal clear, lately though it has been cloudy and I don't really know why... I did a 50% water change and it remains the same. Oh well I heard Aquasoil can be like that I'll just wait it out.
I really really like the desk lamp. It gives off great light and easy to adjust!
Tank is cloudy, any input?
No growth to the plants just yet.
CO2 is off right now. About to go to sleep. I am exhausted...
The HC! Great plant for nanos.
About the CO2 I will post specifics about my system and costs for those interested. It doesn't have to cost a fortune for a pressurized CO2 system in a nano. Total cost for the CO2 setup was about 75 dollars.
Also I want to get some kind of stones in this tank. I am not sure what kind, maybe some suggestions? I want this thing to have mountains so the shrimp can go hiking.
Well I am off to bed now, this week has been incredibly exhausting for me. I will be back tomorrow let me know what you guys think. Thanks PT for all the help on getting this tank going.
