Description: Cheers, Thanks for looking. Im new to aquascaping. I bought the 200L 55gallon. I have been buying plants and fish occasionally during the last 5 weeks while the tank was cycling, I bought the setup on craigs list for $90 after wanting to have a talk for a long time. Low light, 48inch 40watt daylight GE bulb. 12hr/day. Hang on back filter 60. Bubble stone. Heater set 77-79F. pH 7 Medium hardness. slight low nitrates, 0 nitrites, 0 ammonia. Setup going well so far, no major problems. High ammonia in begining. I do water changes 20% exery wednesday. I put in 1/2 dose flora pride by tetra with water changes. I think this helps. There is some algea starting to form slowly on plastic decorations, the bala seem to like this alot, What advice can you give me, I want to add the dept of field, do you like the cave, the bubbles roll out the front of cave and most out the back. I also have 10 moonlight leds that I leave on 24/7.
Advice: Read as much as possible....
Fish Kept: In my tank I have alot of fish. I just added my last fish, 6 assorted gold koi angelfish(just got them), 5 neon tetra (i know they may be eaten), 4 platy, 1 baby platy(good for a new tank), 2 small bala shark (get big), 1 herlaquin raspora, But i still want a ground crew. Like cherry or abino shrimp.

Well java moss, small water sprite, Pennywort, Brazilian (Hydrocotyle Leucocephala), Spiralis (Cryptocoryne spiralis), Myrio, Red (Myriophyllum heterophyllum), Subulata, Dwarf (Sagittaria subulata), Anacharis (Egeria najas).
