Excuse my awesomeness. im 17.
Just got back from a 4 year hiatus. Little known fact about me - Im from malaysia, where everything "planted tank" related is cheap and easy to find (Thank god for that) SOO With my State Level Exam around the corner cant help the feeling of boredom, all from studying, so i decided to start a little project on the sideline while i stress out (Like all asians do) for exams.
Tank specs -
45+/-3 (L)CM X 25+/-3CM x 27+/-3CM (Convert them yourself haha)
EDIT ; Found out that this may actually be around 10 Gallons rather than 7.7.
I opted for ADA Amazonia II cause i like darker substrates, but they ran out so they offered me a cheaper japanese branded soil from HELP (Stands for something but i forgot). Probably the same quality as its quite hard to gauge the quality of soil without being... like... and ultra expert or something, but i wouldnt know.
Its not around here, but its on the way. Some Cheap china brand canister filter that works equally as good as other expensive filters. Cheap doesnt mean bad where i come from
Oh and glass inlet and outlet cause its boss.
Another low budget thing going on. adding about 2-3WPG so i'll update it here whether i want to grab a t5 or something, or just make my own. DIY style. the light in the pichur is temporary by the way.
Its also not here yet, but on the way. Paintball Co2.
Flora and fauna -
Thinking of Cardinal tetras, like a load of them. Along with ottos and shrimps. Yes i know fish eat shrimps, but if they survive, they survive. Probably go with some Tiger Shrimps and RCS. If the local store still has Sulawesi cardinals and goldenflakes, then i'll just sulawesi up the tank instead. will update.
For the plants, im thinking of some Mini Hairgrass (Eleocharis sp) all over, and Eleocharis Vivipara in the back. Although, i have read that they are hard to maintain cause they grow fast and require loads of lighting.
Let me know what you think ! Will be updating this often!
