    Alright here's my video:



    and a picture:

    So my tank.
    50% water change every week. Sometimes it's every 2 weeks sometimes it's twice a week depending on other variables.
    Tank params: nitrate/nitrite/ammonia 0. pH I don't closely monitor but it is usually within range 7.2-8 when I check. I've never had problems with pH. Lots of plants. Plant list:
    Crypt Tropica
    Java Fern
    Windelov Java Fern
    Trident Java Fern
    Needle Leaf Java Fern
    Amazon Sword
    Crinum calamistratum
    Crinum Natans
    Crypt wendtii brown
    Crypt wendtii green
    crypt blassii
    crypt balansae
    willow moss
    java moss
    flame moss
    dwarf sag
    red tiger lotus
    anubias azfeli
    anubias nana petite
    catherina red blaze buce
    purple brown boyan buce
    I'm sure there's more species.


    I have lots of plants as you can see, but most of these were either trimmings or clippings from other plants. A lot of these plants were free to me! My amazon sword is a MOTHER amazon sword which produces many amazon swords that I sell. if you ever need any message me.

    feeding: small sprinkle of flake, a couple algae wafers, a few bottom feeder wafers for the corys. Every now and then they get blood worms.

    STOCK: GBR, Neon tetras, otocinclus, corycat sterbai.


    This tank is dirted which is why the plants grow so amazingly and look so gorgeous with the gorgeous green tint the entire tank has. I am working on a dirted tank guide that will be finished by this winter break (in a few weeks). I am taking finals right now this week and I haven't had time at all these past few weeks to go to my LFS and get some stones for the hardscape.

    Tank specs:

    Lights: generic hydroponics T5HO. I am getting a finnex planted+ for myself for christmas.
    Fluval 306
    Eheim auto feeder
    Generic thermometer
    Fluval mini c02 kit.
    Fluval 100m heater I think (it's old)

    What kind of tank is that? It looks nice, especially with the only anubias species. I've been wanting to try a tank with only anubias nana petite.

    Hey NickAu do you follow the techden.com.au on FB? They had a competition not long ago and one of these tanks was the prize. All entries also received free food samples as a consolation prize :)
