2.5 Mini Bow Nano (2nd Update)
I bought a 2.5 Minibow, comes with 15w incandescent and UGF. I installed a 10w 50/50 and removed the plastic bulb guard to maximize lighting. Iím running a Hagen Elite Mini internal filter; itís basically a power head with sponge filter, 30 gph. Iím running it on the lowest speed. Highly recommend this filter.
Using pea gravel, because I didnít want to buy a large bag of the good stuff and not use most of it. Conditioning with Tetra AquaSafe and fertilizing with Tetra FloraPride. No C02 at the moment, though Iím leaning towards DIYC02 because Elite has a venturi so I can run a C02 line directly into the filter.
Planted with Cryptocoryne walkeri, Hydrotriche hottoniiflora, Ludwigia repens, Rotala rotundifolia. Piece of drift wood.
Setup is 2 days old. Some hitchers include 4-5 pond snails and algae. Early stages, but looks like the Ludwigia brought some staghorn over. Cycle is under way; water has already turned a little white/cloudy.
Thereís not much of a scape or theme, just plants that I could get locally and looked healthy.
Pics will be up shortly.
Fish suggestions welcomed.
Smoke 'em if you got 'em.
