Hey PTF, My name is Greg this is my first post and first time being here. Very recently I caught the planted tank bug and decided to try my hand at a high tech planted aqua scape I have been fish keeping for 18+ years now and have had many tanks, but never dabbled in the co2 and high light world. I had very good success on my first 15 gallon high tech setup which is a monte carlo carpet and multiple stem plants along with AR mini and S. repens. I have been really leaning towards an iwagumi style set up and decided I would give it a shot and make it a show tank in my home. The house is not very large so I decided to do a nice clean small stand alone nano set up. I decided to try HC Cuba as the carpeting plant and will eventually add some giant hair grass for a little contrast. Here is the set up process. I am running uns controsoil substrate, along with pressurized co2, aqua worx orion 12" light, black seiryu stone, and HC cuba for the carpeting plant. I have a UNS canister filter on it. The tank is a UNS 30CM (7 Gallon) by far the smallest tank I have every had. I am currently going to do what I did with my first tank, 6 hours of light, co2 comes on 2 hours before the light and turns off same time as the light, I will do 50% water change every day for the first week then 50% WC every two days for the second week, then 50% WC every third day for the third week then once or twice a week 50% WC from then on. I will also up the light to 8 hours in a week or two. This method gave me so much success with my first planted tank and have had zero algae issues. I am interested to see if I get algae in this tank because I will only be running a carpeting plant, so I don't have the benefit of fast growing stem plants consuming nutrients before algae has the chance to. Oh and fertilizer schedule is as follows, I dose 1 pump of aquarium co-op easy green and 2 pumps easy iron everyday, I believe with the big water changes I don't get excess nutrients because i reset the value with the WC. its been working very well. Let me know what you guys think. Be easy It's my second high tech scape ever. Thanks in advance.
