hey everyone, I kinda started my planted tank it's been about 1 month or so that i started getting plants. I have Java moss, Hornwort,Lace Java fern,And normal Java fern, Crypts(2 diffrent types) Anubius nana, ummmm and 2 plants im not 100% sure of... one looks alittle like Onion plant but alot smaller.


1. Tank water volume: 15 Gallon tropical tank.
2. Tank lighting (type, watts per gallong, etc.):Not sure,
3. Tank filtration:mini Aqua clear filter
4. Tank substrate:Sand
5. Plants:Java ferns,Java moss, Anubius nana, crypts, Hornworts ect ect
6. Fish: Guppies,2 Khuli Loaches,snails, (1 common pleco, but his going somewhere else soon, his getting to big )
7. Test kits used (brand and type):not sure
8. Fertilization regimen (include products used):
9. Do you CO2? Nope....
10. Water change routine:25% each week
11. How long has the tank been set up? Wow!, now lets think... lets say awhile maby 2 years now.. but i've always had this tank running.. i had it for 8 years about. it's because i moved about 2 years ago so i had to restart it again.

Im wondering what lighting i need, i have a rather old type of aquarium hood, Ummm i was also wondering if anyone had any extra plants they might be able to send to me :oops: ... i've seen alot of members
have a beautiful floor of mosses, or other small plants i would like to do that aswell.

Anyway, any help would be great thank you :)

by the way, you guys have all lovely tanks!

:) Thanks for the fast replys,

Im using a normal light, at the moment i have an old lamp on
the tank since my real tank lights are burned out(so the light i have on the tank isn't even for tanks). So thats why im asking what would be best (how many watts per gallon) since im going to go by the lights soon.There not flourescent. Laterite is that a type of gravel for plants?, What are some types of fertilizers?Id like to add that i can't put alot of money into it at the momment since im kinda poor
