More Info

Country: United Kingdom
Description: Planted Juwel Rio 240, JBL pressurised CO2
Advice: Run now - it's too late for my bank account and nerves but you can still save yourselves. Seriously though always quarantine, even first fish as treating nematodes in a heavily planted tank with inverts isn't easy.
Fish Kept: 6 Pristella Tetra, couple of stripy snails (zebra nerites) and Nutter the SAE
Corals/Plants: Echinodorus cordifolius ssp. fluitans Echinodorus 'Ozelot' (Green) Hygrophila polysperma Vallisneria spiralis `Tiger` Limnobium laevigatum - Amazon Frogbit Anubia barteri var. angustifolia Cryptocoryne x willisii and a second Cryptocoryne I've forgotten the name of Glossostigma elatinoides
Tank Size: 57 gallons
Quote: Courage doesn't always roar - sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying "I will try again tommorow"
About Yourself: In need of more sleep!

COMMENTS

Thankyou - the T5 lighting, CO2 and JBL Ferts certainly help. But to be honest I think the trick as a novice is to get plants that are not too demanding! fish avatar
Nice green colour in the plant leaves, looks very healthy and thriving. fish avatar
