More Info

Country: Canada
Description: 90 gallon planted. Lighting: JBJ Formosa Power Compact DX Series Double Light/Triple Fan Cooled Lighting System 48" (65W*4)(260 WATTS). Pressurized C02 w/ reactor. Filter: Fluval 405 Canister. Heater: All-Glass Submersible Heater-200 Watt. Substrate: Eco-complete, flourite, pea gravel mix. Ferts: Flourish or Tropica Master Grow. I don't currently do EI, but will begin if/when algae starts to show.
Advice: I've tried to do planted tanks in the past with regular gravel as substrate, which never turned out well for me (I know plently of people do it, but for whatever reason, it just didn't happen). Now that I do have the "good" susbstrate... it's just a huge difference. Don't let the cost scare you away from the good stuff (IMO - eco-complete is the least messy option).
Fish Kept: 2 pairs of Blue Rams, Neons, Swordtails, 2 female cockatoo cichlids, pleco's.
Corals/Plants: Riccia, Various Crypts, red lotus, banana plants, scarlette hygro, vals, java ferns. I don't know all the names. : /
