So here's my Christmas present to myself. A mr aqua 12 gallon long, my 2nd planted tank. I love the shape of this tank and I hope I can do it justice.
Tank: mr aqua 12 gallon long
filter: eheim 2213
substrate: a little eco complete to help shape some hills topped with fluval stratum
light: current usa satellite + (a wonderful present from my gf)
Co2- gla atomic paintball regulator, haven't decided on inline or not
Ferts: ei with seachem line, seachem root tabs
Scape: random lfs rocks
10-15 rummynose tetras
Not entirely set on stocking yet but I have plenty of time.
Now for the dry start
After a ton of research on here i decided to attempt a drt start. I played with the scape for about 2 weeks before settling in on this one and im really happy i took the time to get it right. It looks pretty spot on to the tank in my mind.
I started with 6 pots of hc And divided each into about 8 plugs and planted away
I added the s repens.
the hc and s repens are doing great. Better than expected even. The downoi i added basically melted after I planted it but after trimming away the melted stems it seems to be making a comback
This last 3 pics is from yesterday and today. I noticed while misting this morning my s repens had a new plant shoot up out of nowhere. The two pics are taken about 6 hours apart.
