I started this conversation on another thread, but I thought I'd break it out with a new subject. http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/f...-sunlight.html
Starting a new 46g bowfront El Natural tank - this will be tank #5 at my house and my 3rd El Natural tank. I started with 1.5" of Miracle Grow Organic, ~1" of very small gravel and a scatter of larger gravel I like. I got a really cool piece of driftwood - shooting for that submerged forest look.
Currently planted 1 amazon sword, 1 dwarf sag, 1 hygro compact, 3 dwarf hairgrass, about 6-8 bunches of giant hygro, 2-3 bunch of a narrow leaf Ludwigia and java fern.
I had one mismatched tetra in my 55g that win in a couple of days ago. Water before planting yesterday was ammonia 0, nitrite .25, nitrate 10. I am hoping with the plant in for 24 hours, things will be close to normal.
This is a tank for my oldest son who has autism. He told me he wanted a tank for his room. Stocking TBD according to his whims (with my veto of course).
Attached is a picture of the tank this morning.
