Walstad-ish IM fusion 10
I'm going into the 3rd week of cycling this tank. Going by Diana Walstad's method as close as I comfortably can. The only things not exactly followed are the fact that I am running biomedia and a filter sock on it. The reasons for doing so are to limit the debris in the water column and since it is only 10 gallons (more likely 8) I wanted to increase the surface area for bacteria. The flow rate is minimal and there is hardly any surface agitation. I'm using MGNC soil capped with sand (front half) and river pebbles (back half). Lighting is a Euri 7w 5000k CRI90+ PAR 20 led which the plants seem happy with. I have 10 Espei Rasboras in another tank that will be going into this once it's finished cycling along with a Betta I plan on purchasing. Plants are: 1 Melon Sword, 1 Kleiner Bar Sword, 1 Italian Val, Lud. Repens, Lud. Super Red, Lim. Aromatica, 2 Crypt. Wendetii brown, 1 Crypt. Lucerns, and a bunch of Crypt Parva.
