Photo Caption: Volume: 65x32x34 cm, 70 litres (15 galons) Lighting and photoperiod: 3x 20W (1000lm, 4000K), 11h for day Description of CO2 System: DIY project (CO2 reactor, JBL CO2 Vario - diffuser) Plant spiecies list: Riccia fluitans, Heteranthera zosterifolia, Cabomba caroliniana, Limnophila aromatica, Ludwigia repens green, Eleocharis acicularis, Limnophila aquatica Fish and invertebrate spiecies list: 15 x Cardinal tetra (Paracheirodon axelrodi), 2 x Siamese algae-eater (Crossocheilus siamensis), 4 x Otocinclus mariae The tank was set up in October 2003. The subtratum is gravel without any fertilizer. Plants were bought alomost in the same time. Aquascape is my own idea. I havent got any serious problems with algae (only incidentally). I add my own-made firtelizer and also N, P and K. Most part of plants is green (except Limnophila aromatica). Fishes and plants create natural contrast. Water parameters: pH=6,2-6,6 gH=10 kH=3 NO3=10 NO2=0 PO4=0,5

I like it, but I might add some other colours, maybe a red plant, or something that is a darker shade of green. fish avatar
