Nelson's first 'planted' tank


17 Nov 2008
Warning :wacky:.No pics yet.Will come tonight 😉.

Never done just plants.I've always done scape's,well tried to :lol:.
I'd stripped this down,as I was getting a new tank,but that's been put on hold now.

Tank-60x30x36 Optiwhite
Filter-JBL E700,Eden 109 pump
Light- Current Satellite Plus PRO
Co2-JBL reg,FE,Fluval diffuser.On 24hrs
Soil-ADA Amazonia(old)

Plants I already had,
Ludwigia Palustris
Ludwigia Senengalensis
Rotala sp Yao Yai
Rotala sp Green
Fissidens fontanus
Cuphea Analaggoidea
Eleocharis sp 'Mini'

Tissue culture.
Alternantherera Reineckii 'Mini'
Hygrophila 'Araguaia'
Littorella Uniflora
Ludwigia Inclinata 'Curly'
Ludwigia sp 'Mini Super Red'
Marsilea Crenata
Utricularia Graminifolia

Ive always struggled with tissue culture plants melting,will see 🙄.
I bought them for some Wabi's that I've not done yet :shh:.
Also the gel had dried up on the Littorella Uniflora,so only got 1 plant.

The background has filled nicely. Nice red plants at the front right of the tank, what are they? A Tiger lotus on the left would be a nice touch, red on either side at the front hmmmm food for thought for you.
nel vitro need high co2 to kick start them. i leave the co2 on for 24/7 for a week and then dail it down. always work for me.

Thanks Ryan.I have it on 24hrs,maybe should have increased it more.
