    Hi all,

    So I've decided to go back to Freshwater again.
    I've been keeping fish on-off for the last 13 years or so.
    I don't see myself as a "serious" hobbyist - but I do love the hobby!

    At this stage I have a small tank up and running, with some plants in (anubias, ferns and some Rotala's).
    Fish - small embers, corries, white clouds, guppies and Ancistrus.

    The tank volume is about 1000l - so have some space to play with. ;-)

    At this stage I'm just playing around, planting the plants at random places (obviously the larger plants at the back).
    But once I have a decent collection of different plants - and a full tank - then I want to do a total rescape - as I know what I have, and what I can work with.

    I will probably look at adding CO2 - and will also want to start to dose some ferts (will go DIY route - as it's hopefully a bit cheaper than buying ferts for a 1000l tank every month).

    Greetings Wandrag

    Post some pics of what you have. Read the thread about EI - estimative index for cheap dosing.

    mmm...
    Having issues in uploading files. Looks like site is just hanging when I try to upload some pics.
    will try again later.


    I will definitely have a look at the EI thread.

    @Wandrag - make sure your pics are smaller than 10mb. Use the “upload a file” option located at the bottom of the text box.
