Hey all here's another one of my set-up.. Since I was bored.. and i never tried a true low-light plants set-up.

Some specs:
Tank: 60cmL x 30cmD x 34cmH approx 15gal.
Substrate: 2 bags of Flourite Black Sand.
C02: Pressurized currently at 1bps
Light: Currently- 11wx2=22w gonna upgrade into 36wx2=72w ..
Filter: A plain HOB filter.
Fertilizer: Unplanned yet.. Suggestions? Preferably the ADA range as i have them at hand.

Some might say that there isn't a need to upgrade the lights, but. the WPG rule doesnt apply from 20gal downwards.


I couldn't get a proper FTS as the old tank(with fauna) is blocking my way..

Current Entire Set-up

Close-up on the Focal Point

Some Crypt.Parva

Slight idea of my set-up with the Iwagumi tank...

Just SHaring.. A view of the modified Bathroom into a fish/shrimp room LOL!
the rack to the left is my shrimp rack..

Here's a better view of it.. the top tank is getting infested with algae..

A slight idea how each tank looks like...Okay getting out of topic here :rolleyes:

Anyways, all comments and critics are most welcome for the tank(s) lol.
Please do suggest more plants to add into the as I am brain dead on what to do witht he empty right side of the tank..Leave it empty? LOL
