First attempt of aquascaping with rocks. I think i did ok.
65w 6700k (10 hour photo)
Gravel: Fluorite Black Sand (35lbs)
Co2: 4-6bps (ph currently at 6.0!!!)
Dose dry fert IE: k2so4, kh2po4, kno3, csm+b, mgso4, cacl2, flourish iron
Plants: Glossotigma, hc, wendi's, rotala, ludwigas, tiger lily. (im not gona get into technical names, they are what they are)
At first it was mainly a glossotigma tank just for that field effect, but i shut down my 100 gallon (sold) and all the plants needed a home. Gave most away, sold huge chunks of glossotigma carpets, took some nice clippings of other plants and saved some for myself in this tank.
Fish will be when glosso takes over and ph becomes stabilized: 5-6 ottocinclus, x3 1" albino bushys, 7 cardinal tetras (all i have, but want more!).
5-6 Ottos, cherry shrimp, amano shrimp. <--- leaning more towards this because i plan on setting up a 40 gallon breeder i have sitting around ^^
Tank painted with oil based paint:
Rocks and gravel in:
Week 1: took a picture at a weird angle. This was sitting under my 100 gallon. Glossotigma goes in.
Week 2: sold the 100 gallon tank, had to move the whole setup over to one side of the room, then when tank was sold moved it back over to original spot except on a new stand. Look at the glosso go! they're growing straight up as expected, once pruned they will grow like a carpet. Atleast thats in my experience, we shall see what happens down the line
Also added some plants from the 100 gallon.
Will try to keep a weekly update and will just keep updating this post to keep the cluttering of pictures.
