I need to post some new pics this weekend. I got rid of the java ferns, banana plants, and 2 small crypts. Have replaced with minuta marsilea, riccia floating and 2 dwarf java ferns. Growth at first was explosive but has now slowed since the tank has cycled. Lessons I have learned was that don't do a major trim or you will bring on a algae outbreak. From now on I will do less of a trim.
I just bought the HD light to add when I get my pressurised C02 going. I have a tank, regulator, and 2 brass check valves. I need to get co2 tubing and either a mini jet powerhead to feed the co2 in, or a nano diffuser, and a co2 drop checker. I found nano diffusers on ebay other members seem to like. Anything else I'm missing?
Once I get the CO2 going I want to try some reddish/pinkish plants to help break up the green look....
I really like this finnex 4.
