Well I couldnt resist the temptations...
I was at the club yesterday taking photos of the pond we are dredging and during my walk around I found a couple of interesting plants that I cannot name that I know grow below the water line so I scooped up some of that nutrient rich (very dark) looking soil and dug up a couple test pieces of these plants and bought a tank.
Its a marineland 5 gallon Hex tank.
I put a couple inches of the soil in it and capped it with sand, stuffed in the plants and filled it this morning. It comes with a 15W incandescent light that I am using for the time being to see what happens but I think I am going to up the light wattage a bit. This tank aint gonna see fish for a long time so I dont much care about the water quality yet and if these plants dont make it ... oh well.
The soil is what I really wanted to try and now that I think of it I probably should have used some plants from my tanks for comparison instead of plants that I know NOTHING about ! :lol: :lol:
