    Abandoned Valley

    Thought I would finally post my first semi scape, I’ve tried to grow plants for a while now just to see what I like and what I can and can’t grow. I’m calling it a semi scape because it’s my first one and I still have a lot to learn.

    Equipment

    1 Eheim 2026 external filter
    1 Resun 1500lph external filter
    2kg Fe Co2
    Cyclo Turbo Diffuser
    Arcadia 3x38w T8 Luminarie
    Aqua Basis
    DIY Ferts

    Flora

    Cryptocoryne
    Microsorum
    Aubias
    Little bit of Vallisneria & Echinodorus

    Fauna

    28 Neon Tetra
    27 Emerald eye Rasbora
    6 Bronze Cory
    4 panda Cory
    2 Peppered Cory
    6 otocinclus
    3 Clown Loach (going to be re housed)

    The tank has been setup for 8 days it still needs a lot of tweaking i’m suffering a little crypt melt but not overly worried, the fish were added a couple of hours after taking the photo. i love the contrast between the blue of the neons and white of the Rasbora and the way they shoal in a tight formation. i'm not very good at taking pictures appolgies in adavance.
    Thanks to everyone else who post their pics as im not very creative and its been a great help!
    Thanks for looking.
    Regards
    Liam
