10 Gallon, Pressurized, ceramic diffusion, HOB filter, sponge for intake, heater, T5HO (36ish watts?) ADA Aquasoil (most old, a little new soil), run the light for about 10 hours or even less (but usually about 9-11 hours, I'll watch how to see how the plants respond in regard to algae growth and visibility nutrient deficiencies), Dose everything just no excel, and I might even think about upping the hardness just a tiny tiny bit every once in awhile (soft water Portland, OR),
I just put it together really quick one day, I still have a lot to do but at least you can see a preview, I still need to adjust hardscape, I have to get new plants, even decide on what I want to do, I know I wanna do Dwarf Baby Tears, I need to slope the aquasoil, smooth it out a bit, i wanna run it up the trees a bit, I want the look of a dense Amazon forest almost w/ bright dwarf lillies.
I don't really like the wood layout, I like the two trees on the left but, the one on the right is all that I had (other driftwood wasn't the right color), I dunno what I'm gonna do about that yet needs to be more slope in gravel I think. Especially into these trees.
I'm moving that dwarf anubias on the left tree to the base, I'm gonna get more.
Thinking about getting more moss in on this mix (not really any in there)
I like the dwarf lillie behind the middle tree for some reason (might play w it, and also see what shorter leaves would look like *better for sure*
Can't wait for a healthy carpet, way more healthy dwarf anubias, thick background, and some nice mid ground plants
Possible mid ground (need to be relatively short)
^ I really want that for mid ground but it seems so rare, (anyone have any?)
So thats it for now, plus Images
