Hi and hello fro Indonesia.
This is my first post and my first building an NPT after so many month learning from this forum. The tank is nano tank a 10g.
Dirt soil i've been using is from my own backyard, with 4 times mineralizing (wash and dry it) before i mixed with clay, the depth is around 1 inch. And i topped the dirt with pasir malang 1 inch (i don't know this sand in english) and topped the sand a little for aesthetic purpose with aquasoil, the sand (pasir malang) is consist from 1 mm to 3 mm in diameter. And the plants are:
- helantium tenellum
- juncus repens
- utricularia graminifolia (wabikusa)
- dwarf hairgrass
- lobelia cardinalis
- bacopa monnieri
- staurogyne repens
- ceratophyllum demersum
- pistia stratiotes
The tank is 8 days and after days 7, i put 3 ramshorn snails and 1 mysterious snail.
Light duration is about 9 hrs, i made the lighting by myself 12 watt diy led hpl, with hob filter and surface skimmer. Is it ok to use both hob filter and surface skimmer in this kinda NPT?
And what do you think about this tank?
And i would like to thank everyone in this forum for giving me enlightment about aquascape, especially Natural Planted Tank.
Looking forward to make this kinda method to be succeeded
