Ooooh... I gotta put up my pics. I have two planted tanks, one is a true npt (just a little light on the plants), the other is sand based so not an NPT.
Name of your Tank: no name... just a sorority
Substrate type: black earth topsoil capped with play sand
Dimensions: 30 x 12 x 18 (I think.. in inches)
Is It A Natural Planted Tank: yes
Water Volume: 29 gallons
Water Temperature: ~79
Water change schedule: have not decided. Will probably small 1/month, unless something spikes.
Age of tank: 1 week
Lighting: single strip, 10k 18W bulb (looking for a dual strip to upgrade to)
Fertilizers: used some root tabs, but was suggested to skip it
Stock:currently two females, plan to pick up two more tomorrow, and have three waiting to be added. Eventually will add a BN pleco. Might go up to 12 girls. Trumpets, lots of them.
Not sure of all of them, two or three varieties of crypts, lots of cabomba, some water sprite (wisteria? I cn never tell them apart). hygro, some brazillian penny wort, two swords, plus a couple of plants I'm not quite sure of, but are stemmed. Planning on adding more, a bunch or two at a time.
Side note: plan on adding driftwood, when I find some non slime growing kind. Will attach some java moss to it then.
Will add my 10G shrimp tank later.
