I have recently made an attempt to set up my first proper 'scape with a 28litre tank (inspired by Graeme Edward's latest effort, but that's a different story). It has 11W of lighting, so is pretty low light to say the least. I have an inert substrate, with added root tabs for the crypts. Fish load consists of just a betta and a few cherry shrimp. No plans to add anything else (although I hope the cherries increase in number without much effort on my part ) Plants are all low light - anubias barteri v. nana, java fern, flame moss and monosolenium tenerum (if I can get it attached to some small bits of slate ). I accept I'm going to have pretty slow growth in these conditions. So, as I have a very low fish load I doubt I can rely on the plants utilising any of the nutrients from the fish/food waste. Ideally, as it's intended to be a low maintenance tank, I'd prefer a liquid solution to this one. Any suggestions of products/dosing regimes?
