I started this aquarium one week ago.
Size/type- 31 liter "Cocoon" Aquatic Nature
Lights - 1x Aquatic Nature 9W compact florescent (something like T5, but two light stripes) on for 9 hours.
Fauna;
9 Hemigrammus erythrozonus, 2 Otocinclus vittatus and a few Malaysian Trumpet snails. I am about to add a few Amano shrimps.
Flora;
Microsorum pteropus, Microsorum Windelow, Anubias afzeli, Anubias petit and Rotala rotundifolia.
Ferts;
DIY CO2
Aquarium peat under the gravel. Water was stained with excess tannins, but cleared out thanks to large water changes.
Dosing a few drops every day of basic Aquatic Nature fertiliser (without N and P)
Weekly 25% water change.
HOB filter.
Temp 24'C
Juwel background (internal fixed with silicone).

Regards, Dusko.

Its nice to see glowlights, there not commonly used by mainstream hobbyist. Its a shame because its such a nice looking tetra. They would have stood out much better with a darker surrounding. Its a beautiful start, What plant is in the center foreground??? I LOVE HOW THE JAVA looks comming out of the rocks!

Very nice! I like how the background flows right into the rock pile. Very original!
The rock will look nicer once they get a dusking of algae, or are you going to add moss? Any plans for foreground plants?

Thanks all Smile
I will not add anything new but shrimps. I am very happy with this (very simple looking) scape.
I will soon start a 240 liter at my shop and I am re-aquascaping my 180 liter home aquarium, so stay tuned Wink

It is great thing to work in such Zoo Shop, you can use anything you like Razz I even started a nano salt water aquarium, soon online for your viewing pleasure .

Bolivian Ramage, the front centre plant is the most elegant looking IMO Anubias "Afzelii" http://www.aquahobby.com/garden/e_afzelii.php

Thanks again. Kind regards, Dusko.

Wow neat. The Glowlight Tetras blend in with the gravel. They probably feel right at home as they seem to be hovered at the bottom.

WOW, I hope to get into aquascaping one day, that's what you call it right? I really need to learn LOTS more though. Would love to do something with my little 10 Gallon maybe, for practice. But I love how it looks like that one plant in the middle is exploading out from the rocks.
