    Hi guys

    Just introducing myself

    I'm Craig from gillingham Kent and below is my tank

    It is jewel vision 180 with a fluval led light
    And fluval 306 external filter

    Substrate is 18l Ada Amazonia soil and I have used aprox 6kg of slate from a local builders merchant

    Plants
    Hemianthus callitrichoides
    Elocharis parvula
    Glossostigma elatinoides
    Hydrocotyle tripartita
    Lidwiga sp
    Ultricularia graminifolia

    Pressurised co2 system with up aqua inline diffuser at 2.6 bubbles per second
    Photoperiod 11am till 9pm with co2 on at lights off 1hr before

    RO water
    Ph 6.2
    22degrees celcius

    Fish and inverts
    Now only 1 galaxy rasbora
    1 ottocinclus
    1 cherry shrimp
    And 1 apple snail

    Your comments are very welcomed as this is a rescape from keeping a low tech planted gravel substrate tank and everything is new to me

    Thank you

    The pictures don't do it justice really the plants are not yellow like you see

    I've had a few issues recently with ammonia and ph swings hence the stock

    Some 50% daily water changes should help your ammonia. I used to have trouble before I started a proper water change regime when first starting a tank, not sure how old your scape is?
