Hello all! This is my first tank to be posting on here and frankly, the first tank worth posting on here. This is a replacement for a little 5.5 gallon shrimp tank I had with poor lighting. I found this baby on eBay for a good price, and decided that I really wanted it.
I'll be swapping out the ugly blue tubing for the CO2 diffuser for clear soon, but they were out of silicon tubing at my LFS.
3 mid-sized Amazon Swords
1 Myrio Filigree
3 Dwarf Amazon Swords
Dwarf Baby Tears
Foxfarm Organic Soil cut with sand for flow
Light colored succulent plant sand
Starting with RCS, if water parameters are right, I want to try my hand at rili reds and blues
Aqueon Leaf Zone (micronutrient supplement to make assist soil)
DIY Yeast CO2
These are day two pictures since day one was a tad cloudy (please forgive me, I am not a photographer):
Tried to get a decent photo of the baby dwarf tears:
Eventually I will buy a second LED light for this, and will replace the swords in the back with red ludwigia and another myrio. I have the swords in there since they grow fast enough and can withstand medium lighting. Plus I have a tank they'd look great in later.
Any advice is greatly appreciated! This is an experiment for me with the dirt substrate, so I'm looking forward to playing around.
