HI,

My name is Lance and this is my first high tech tank.
Tank: Used AGA 20g "High"
Lighting: Coralife 1x65w CF Aqualight
Substrate: ADA Aquasoil Malayan(roughly 14 liters)
Filtration: Ehiem 2213 Canister with Cal Aqualabs intake/return
Other hardware: Hydor ETH inline heater, 5lb aluminum co2 tank, Rex Grigg Regulator, DIY glass bottle bubble counter, DIY Rex Grigg Reactor

Ferts: Greg Watson via the EI method

Sun, Tues, Thurs
1/4 tsp NO3
1/32 tsp KH2PO4
1/16 tsp K2SO4

Mon, Wed, Fri
5ml Flourish micro

Sun after waterchange
1/8 tsp Barr GH Booster

Fauna:
12 Galaxy Rasbora
2x oto catfish
Handful of red cherry shrimp


This picture was taken a few nights ago. It is of poor quality.



Today the tank went under the knife drastically and I will post a new picture after some growth occurs. Lets just say the number of speices of plants in the tank has been reduced and the layout freshened up a lot. I also went on a crusade to rid myself of the duckweed.

Tank looks good! Is that glosso? Try replanting the stems to make them grow horizontally more, rather then vertically.

Great job. I don't mind the duckweed as I think it is a good algae preventer. BUT, the glosso would grow closer to the substrate with more light...so removing the floating plant would help accomplish that.

Any fish planned?

ALso, that seems like a lot of nitrate to dose. I typically used 1/8 tspn nO3 3Xweekly in a 29 gallon tank.
