More Info

Country: Canada
Description: 4' 50G planted - Tank is c02 enriched 6.4 ph, 2.5kh, 3.5gh, 0 ammonia 0 nitrite 5 to 10 mg/l nitrate. With 3.7 wpg of 6500k lighting on a 10 hour cycle.
Advice: I have slowly switched all my tanks over to planted tanks over the last couple years and could never go back, the fish are so much calmer, and its just plain peaceful to watch them putter around in a planted tank.
Fish Kept: 18 Cardinal Tetras, 10 Neon Tetras, 6 GlowLight Tetras, 1 SAE, 4 Peppered Corries, 3 Pearl Gouramis 1m 2f, 4 ottos, 10 Japonica shrimp And the following that will be rehomed in a differnt tank very soon and replaced with a few more Cardinals, 8 Zebra danios, 3 colombian blue red and 2 white skirt tetras
Corals/Plants: The left of the tank is Riccia fluitans and Vesicularia dubyana tied down onto a system of hollow rock caves on a sand substrate. The center of the tank is all ludwigia repens, Nuphar stellata, Eleocharis parvula, Echinodorus tenellus, and a few crypts in flourabase, with a anubis on the wood that seperates the wood from the sand. The right of the tank is Microsorum pteropus regular and Windelov rooted onto a twisted pile of roots about 2 inches of the plain gravel with larger rock substrate, to create mangrove effect under them for the fish to find shelter. And a lonely crypt off in front of them.
Tank Size: 50 gallons
