6.5K Fluval T5 fluorescent (x2)
1400 + UV APS canister filter
(need to change this - the grains are too small and plants struggle to root)
~ 40 (working on reducing the nitrates - comes out of the tap with 20ppm),
PH: 8.2, Hard water.
General purpose ferts in water column
Various stem plants (temporary)
Floating plants (water lettuce, duck weed)
Kuhli loach (8)
Black neons (4)
Various small guppies (about 6 adults, some dry)
+ 1 male betta (rescued 10 days ago - luckily he seems peaceful!)
This tank is a direct upgrade (same filter media) from my 25G starter tank. I made a a lot of mistakes with my first tank and just a few less with this one. Definitely still learning every step the way!
