I got it just under 2 1/2 weeks ago and only just got the external filter in yesterday.There are 2 bits of redmoor root, amazon swords, java fern, vallis(which has melted a bit), moss balls, salvinia natans(think im going to take most of it out), Pogostemon Helferi and Aponogeton Ulvaceus which i hope will grow in and cover the sponge filter a bit I have arcadia and anubias T8 bulbs and i am going to buy some fertilisers to help the plants a bit i think.
Cycling is going well i think tested today, 0.5ppm ammonia, 5.0ppm nitrite, 20ppm nitrate, pH 6.8. Going to get a quarantine tank soon and the first inhabitants will hopefully be 2 black neon tetras and 3 harlequin rasboras and when i can get to the lfs up to 6 black neons and 10 harlequins.
I will upload some photos tonight, dont have a camera atm and just to warn yous this might be a slow jounal as i can only get to the lfs about once every 2 months
