Unread postby bedouinjoy » Fri May 19, 2017 4:01 pm

Hi ! Aquapetzians

Another Nano Tank made by me and recently dismantled. Once it went out of control as I was not at Home. The tank consumes extremely less Electricity.  Criticism is most welcome.

1. Tank : Glass tank (regular glass) - 12"x 9" x 9" .Background is covered with White Opaque sheet

2. Substrate - Old Mixed substrate more than 5 years old.  

3. Filtration -  Resun Cyclone CY.

4. Lighting - DIY LED.6500 to 7000K

5. CO2 setup -  Pressurized.

6. Flora - Micranthemum sp. 'Monte Carlo', Taxiphyllum sp.'Flame', Riccia fluitans, Microsorum pteropus sp 'Needle', Anubias sp 'Micro petit', Fissiden, Hemianthus micranthemoides, Marsilea hirsuta,etc

7. Fauna - Boraras Maculatus, boraras brigittae, Cardina Babaulti etc.

8. Ferts - Lab Grade. Self Calculated and on the lower side of dosing.

9. Decor- Laterite Rocks.
