Discussion and for posting pics for anything fishy related, or not so fishy related - also includes inverts, plants, equipment etc. Mainly intended to be tropical freshwater but may as well include coldwater freshwater, tropical marine, coldwater marine (not many people keep those), brackish (or that). Aquarists get posting. Some of my pics to follow...
My current setup:
Fluval Spec V nano tank (19l/21l)
Sump filter media: sponge/foam, activated carbon or filter floss, BioMax rings
Sump filter water pump: 300lph
Newa VisiTherm Eco 50w heater (in the sump)
Added an air powered sponge filter other end of tank running on a tiny piezoelectric air pump
LED lighting (7.4w). White light + blue moonlight night time light (good)Substrate/Decor:
4kg's Samoa sand (inert)
Sagittaria Subulata (eel grass)
Monosolenium tenerum (Pellia/sußwassertang) freshwater "seaweed"
Nymphoides hydrophylla 'Taiwan' (freebie)
Sera florenette root tablets
King British plant feed (contains iron)The critters (subject to change :manvery-happy 🙂 :
4 Poecilia wingei endlers (guppies). Was 5. Had a cute little baby one I was fond of go missing. :smileysad: Eaten by a crab?
8 (7 + 1 tiny freebie) Neocaridina (yellow ones) shrimps. Or there might be 8. Subject to being eaten by crabs. :smileyindifferent:
5 Thai micro crabs
2 Brotia pogodula (Horned Armour Snails)
3(?) Rams horn snails(?) freebies/stowaways with the plants
3 Golden freshwater clams
Ammonia & nitrite: 0ppm (I hope)
GH: dunno don't test it
KH: 5 varies - messing around making my own DIY hardness buffer (I'll probably keep it at 4)
pH: 7.5-7.8 rises in the afternoon due to the plants (bit more stable now than it was before).
