Thank you, I am quite pleased with this my first attempt.
One week on:
I had some algae starting to appear so, DIY CO2 was installed last wednesday.
I am so new to this plant thing that I have no idea about the proper names of the plants are. i'll give it a shot though.
Stem plants from left to right:
Mikro plant - apparently an Australian native, will find out its scientific name soon
On the drift wood:
Java moss and Anubias barteri var. nana
(which I might remove sometime down the track!)
Foreground: Cryptocoryne spp.
- Which is likely to grow too tall so will eventually replace with something else.
The tank is a purpose built betta show tank. I got 12 of them
As for live stock; I am going to wait a while for the tank to stabilise and have good plant growth. I am planning to put in Australian ghost shrimp that we seem to have in every creek around here. As for fish I got the below species I might experiment with:
Whichever species I decide on (and I might decide to not to have any fish in at all!) I will use 1 or 3 specimens, to balance the composition.
