I have following going on right now...
Tank – 42”x21”x18” made out of 12mm toughened glass. Tank was custom made to fit in wall during home renovation project which my wife had started a year ago.
Substrate - Seachem Flourite 100% - 5x7lbs
Filters – Eheim 2075 - just bio/mech filtering, 2213 - bio/mech filter and CO2 reactor connected to output, 2012 has been removed yesterday only as it was coming in way of plants growth in one corner.
Lights - 4x36W Phillips PLLs, 18x3W @ 130lm/W CREE Cool White LEDs with focused optics. All of this is running on 6 timers to create day night cycle.
Fertilizers - Tetra Root Tabs, Sera Florena, Plant Magic, Hydrogen Peroxide, Seachem Flourish Excel (Hydrogen Peroxide is not a fertilizer essentially but if used in moderate quantity it can act as one – same as giving plants rain water and they bloom faster – rain water is essentially diluted hydrogen peroxide. BE CAREFUL WITH THIS AS IT CAN MELT ALL YOUR PLANTS IN JUST 2 HOURS)
Cooling – Regular compact exhaust fan used in reverse.
Fish Food – Azoo 9-1, Hikari Flakes and Algae Waffles
I am not doing much of water changes as filters seem to be effecting and I have very less bio load. I hope I have covered all aspects except for plant and fish names – I am fairly new to know them. I have been just going about adding them based on their needs, function in tank and how they will look in the tank.
