You should get some root tabs under the substrate. Your plants will benefit from it. Looks good, though! I'm interested to see what it'll look like once everything grows in.This is my first ever fish tank. Decided to go planted.
Aqueon 55/75 HOB filter
Hagen glow 24" single t5ho
Eco complete capped with gravel
Amazon swords, java moss, java fern, jungle val, dwarf sag, and a few assorted crypts.
6 rummy nose
5 bleeding heart tetras
6 panda cory
4 oto cats
Tank has been running for 2 months. Any suggestions always welcome. Still learning.
That tank looks awesome! I like the idea of having a smaller sized light! what size is that tank and light?Here is an update on mine. A year old now, Eco complete substrate with root tabs. No CO2. Daily 0.5ml of excel and once weekly API leaf zone. The ludwigia has decent orangish coloration. But no good reds.
Lighting is two satellite plus strips (one smaller one). Monthly water changes only. Have a clean up crew of 15 nerites, 5 amanos and 5 otos that keeps the algae at bay. Photoperiod is 8 hours.
Looks like a tank that has Co2 injected. All tanks have algae especially in the beginning.Here's my latest low-tech (compost, clay, peat substrate, no water changes, no dosing), 90g. Up and running about 3 1/2 weeks, growing in steadily but fighting off some early-tank algae (with floaters and tannins). I'm so tempted to turn to the dark side and go CO2.
