Some plants came in today. Now that I planted them, I readjusted the sketch again so its realistic...
0 = HC
1 = Blyxa japonica
2 = Hemiathus micranthemoides
3 = Rotala sp. 'Araguaia'
4 = Anubia barteri var. nana petite
5 = Rotala sp. 'nanjenshan'
6 = Rotala sp. 'green'
7 = Downoi
8 = Rotala sp. 'colorata'
9 = Echinodonis tenellus
10 = Didiplis diandra
11 = Rotala sp. 'rotundifolia'
I also managed to get the DIY co2 setup. I used a 2 liter and jello and yeast and I connected it to a throttler and a tee, then from there off to the two CO2 nano diffusers.
Is is possible to over CO2? I mean I won't be adding fish for several weeks but I have the plastic throttle on fully open so its blasting CO2 into the water. I can see the bubbles before they hit the diffuser disc and its at a rate of about 3 bubbles per second
Sorry about the washed out look of the photos, looks exactly like that in person. I'll have to look into getting some nicer bulbs later on.
I know i need a background--will likely go with black poster board. As for the equipment, the tank is positioned in a corner facing the entrance of my room so the filter looks odd at the sides.. I figure, once the plants grow in and that with the black background--won't be noticeable..
