Hello everyone,

Hope all are going well. I finally setup the aquarium. Here are details and photo, will be happy to get some suggestions, tips and review from awesome people here.

Tank size: 3ft L X 1ft W X 11inch H
Substrate: Natural soil from nursery after mineralizing it. 1-1.5 inch layer at bottom. 2-3mm sand cap 1.2 -1.5 inch over it.

Plants in order from left: cabomba piauhyensis, bacopa Caroliniana, ludwigia inclinata, rotala macrandra, rotala rotundifolia green, hygrophila corymbosa compacta, sagittaria subulata

Fertilizer: EI method, macro fert. made from kh2po4, know and mg2so4 and micro fert made from fe, zn, mo, cu etc. Dosing 15 ml alternatively. No co2.

Light: syska 4ft (it's longer than tank) Led light, 6500K 18W, 1600 lumens right over tank (3 inch from surface and 10 inch from gravel)

Livestock: No fishes added yet. Thinking about tetras, mainly black buenos tetra and rummy nose, pair of angel, algae eaters.
