Right , decided to set up this planted tank. my first attempt and i based it on the masterpiece by george farmer.
Sourced the plants from java-plants , tropica and ebay. Only been set up a couple of weeks , has shown good growth in those couple of weeks. dosing with TPN every week , c02 supplied by nutrafin yeast system. Plagioumnium only added today hence the brown root structure but im told that will go away once plant has stabilised. Tips and advice welcome This is my first planted tank so be gentle. I intend to have about 5-10 espei rasboras in there. its also just finished cycling.

I bought some poligomn.... how ever you spell it from greenline under the moniker "pearl moss" and I found that as long as you gave it LOTS of co2 it grew just fine.
