Started this tank in late January. It's my first aquascape. It's also my first foray into planted tanks. Started off low tech, went high tech for 4 months, after the extinguisher ran out, I just decided to move to liquid co2, which seems to have kept the carpet alive, even if it's not quite as bright as it used to be. I initially tried to grow some Alternathera mini in the back left corner, but it just melted away and died, so I pulled it out and only replaced it earlier this week with some Micranthemum Umbrosum, so we'll see how that goes. Substrate - 3ltr - ADA Aquasoil Amazonia Hardscape - 2kg Dragonstone from aqua-essentials. Lighting - Boyu canopy with 3x8w t5's although I only run two of the bulbs as 24w seems like overkill for this tank. Flora - Heteranthera Zosterifolia Eleocharis Sp. Mini from 1-2 grow Micranthemum Umbrosum Fauna - Colony of Cherry Shrimp 7 Ember Tetras. Initially I battled with the algae on the dragonstone but I've come to like the character it gives the rocks, seems to make them stand out much more.
