I just sold off about 45 stems from this tank today, which was great since it has needed to be thinned out desperately. I'm getting an order of some L Aromatica and a few other plants that I need to make room for. So i figured I'd take a few pics and show the progress its made in a few months. I really have never been happier with the look, and I cant wait for the rotala to bounce back from the large top cut.
Specs on this tank are as follows:
Lighting- 4 19w cfl's at 5000K inside clamp work lights, 11.5 hours a day
Filtration- ehiem 2013, AC 70
CO2- 20 lb pressurized diffused with needlewheel pump on closed loop. Timed 1 hour before lights on and off.
Ferts- Ei dosing, 1/16 tsp CSM +B, 1/4 tsp KNO3, 1/16 tsp KH2PO4, 1/16 tsp K2SO4. Root tabs under the swords to keep 'em happy.
Fish- 10 assorted danio, 16 neon tetra, 2 glow light tetra, 1 silver tip tetra, 1 black phantom tetra, 1 white cloud minnow, 2 red flame gouramis (one isn't acting right though), 2 otto cats, and 2 ammano shrimp.
Plants- H. Difformis (wisteria, far left), Echinodorus argentinensis (Argentine sword, front left and back right), microsorum pteropus (Java fern), myriophyllum pinnatum (milfoil, back right), Rotala rotundifolia (middle back), anubias nana? (middle front), Eleocharis acicularis (Dwarf hairgrass, front right), unknown plant front middle/left in front of wood.
Thats the unknown plant to the right of the sword ^ Any ideas?
DHG filling in nicely, you can see new stems along the glass and between the clumps. These were planted in clusters of 5 or less stems about a month ago.
What do you all think? I'm all ears for suggestions!
