    Heyo guys!

    I have already documented this tank somewhat whilst asking for some advice on stocking ideas.

    Since then, I have decided on what I wanted to do and started building this tank exactly how I wanted. I thought it would be fun to start this thread as day 1, setting up the tank, even though it has progressed further. I will update daily until I am caught up to where I am currently at.

    So! Day1:
    Fluval Flex 15g.
    Fluval plant and shrimp stratum

    Just started getting the cycle going with mature media!

    Is the java fern planted in the substrate? The rhizome needs to be above the substrate or it will rot. The small hair-like roots are OK buried but not the stem-like rhizome.

    I agree with @essjay, java fern does best planted on/in driftwood/rocks.

    I love the FLEX! It’s sooooo cool looking. Maybe when I get a more stable job, I will be able to get one! :lol: :rolleyes:
