hey guys how r u doing?
today i wanna show my latest tank which has already going on for a month. the concept is to create iwagumi scene with a carpet plant on it ground. but not like usual method of keeping carpet plants, i try to not using CO2 injection to the tank. I wouldn't call this tank an NPT though, because the mass quantities of the plants wouldn't be enough to contribute on making a self containing balanced ecosystem. i use a hang on filter and do water change once a week this far.
.Well here is the specs :
tank : 35x20x25 cm
substrate : bottom --> garden soil mixed with 500 mgr of Bicarbonate , surface --> bali's sand
lighting : 11 Watt table lamp
hardscape : two similar type of stones (dunno what type)
plants : valisneria nana, glossostigma elantinoides
animal : not yet, but plans to keep freshwater shrimp if the glosso were succesfully carpeted
at first the glosso's growth were vertical, but i pinched it down to the substrate, and now it begin to adapt and start sending runners
. Wish me luck will u! Comments and critics r welcomed and truly appriciated
