Talking Moose's ADA MINI S!

Hello! I got my mini S today!

Just looking for some opinions:

Equipment: Needing-lights and a possible filter. No heater for now.

Scape: Looking for a "mountain" Similar to Gore range here in CO, or to the Matterhorn.

Flaura: HC, something red (Rotala colorada?), and some flame moss.

Fauna:
3 PFR and Celestial Pearl Danios

CO2:
Paintball-jaggedfury

Location: in the shelves of my ikea desk and later collage.


OPINIONS!

Picture(s): 2 weeks of growth

I like the rock, but I'd be afraid it would fall and hit that back glass.

Letting the HC grow in DSM. Only complaint: The glass lid is not "High Clarity" like the rest of the tank. Oh well. Planning on CPD for the tank whenever it gets rolling.

That's good that you are having growth. When I tried to grow HC emersed it took all summer to pop out of the dirt and grow about 10 leaves. I think it is my area's higher pH.

Sorry to hear about your troubles.

Mix your ferts into the water you spray with. Foliar feeding is magic
