Hello everyone.

My first planted tank :)


Fluval Ebi 7.9 gal

Lighting 60W

60 watt CLF lightbulb 6500K with a HOB sealed Lamp.


CO2 is supplied by a Pressurized CO2 system 5lb tank (Mike) with Ista 3 in 1 Diffuser


I dose EI weekly and 50% water change weekly (Niclog)


This is filtered by a Aquaclear 20 | Small Finnex Nano filter (for seeding for a nano tank)


ADA Aquasoil I & II mixed (Alan & Mike)


It's heated by 25w small heater


Just a small driftwood


There is no theme for the plants I've chosen. These are plants I have received as a RAOK from a fellow PTP NYC'ers that helped me get started (Alan, Kitty, Chris & Albert) thank you all. And the rest that I bought from few that I named here and else where.

So I squeezed out the filter floss given to me by Alan
and I just dumped everything in and the excessive mulm did this to the water *FML*


Some BBA on the Belem

Finally water change and cleaned the mulm with a pipe
