Fluval Edge 12

This is the start to my Fluval Edge planted 12 gallon tank at work. I am growing out the dwarf baby tears and dwarf hairgrass until taller plants for background come in. I will also be attaching some moss to the driftwood. I added a Finnex Ray2 18" light to go along stock LED light. Once water is in I will be running CO2. I have the adapter and Paintball 20z tanks i will use once the one runs out it came with. I am still trying to figure out what I want to go in this tank. I am thinking Shrimp, but do like fish swimming.

I have 2 tanks home a 125 galllon planted tank with 6 red belly piranhas about 5-6" and a huge pleco. Second tank is a 100 gallon cichlid tank, no plants just sand and texas holey rock. and always adding more texas rock. Damn stuff isn't cheap in New Jersey.

Looking good. What is the wood that you have.

I used to keep an open mind but my brains kept falling out.

I am not sure of the type, I picked those up at LPS. I liked how it has dark areas.

Here is updated look at tank.

Could you please list me the plants that you are using in your Edge?

I have tried several in my edge and the only ones that have been thriving are Anubias, Java Fern and Water Wisteria.

I have Tahitian Moon sand and everything I planted in it was always having less and less leaves, having holes in the leaves and/or just melting.

I do not use any ferts as there is shrimps in it.
