My First Aquascape: Check it out :)
I just wanted make an update on my tank. I've finally planted, filled and stocked my 10 gallon Waterbox Cube tank. I'm not using CO2 or any additives apart from Seachem Iron for the Red Ludwigia.
Ambulia (Limnophila sessiliflora)
Lilly Grass (Lilaeopsis)
Monte Carlo carpet
Mini Pellia (on the bonsai)
4 Crystal Red Shrimp
4 Galaxy Rhasboras (or also known as Celestial Pearl Danios)
So far its been good. I added the CRS last week and am looking to add 3 Amano Shrimp whenever I can get a hold on them in my area (seems to be difficult to find in Australia). I'm having some string/hair algae problems on the Mini Pellia on my Bonsai which is annoying; pulling them out when I can, but often I cant do so without the Pellia coming off with it, so I'm hoping that the Amanos whenever I get them will help on that front.
I wanted atleast 5 Galaxies but the store only had 4, so will get more when I can.
My end goal was to add a Betta at some point, but I'm waiting to see how everything goes for a few weeks at least before I do. I was worried that until the Pellia grows out alot more, all the branches and sticks on the Bonsai might be abit harmful to a Betta.
Overall, I'm pretty happy with how it looks so far, especially with how the MC Carpet turned out after the dry start. Hopefully it grows a little more thicker. I have also noticed too that I have a Hydra problem but I've ordered some Benibachi's No Planaria to combat that.
Enjoy the pics and feel free to let me know what you guys think.
