    Hi

    I have been keeping fish for a number of years, but have never given much thought to aquascaping or the particular plants kept in the tank.
    After going through a patch where I got rid of all the plants in my tanks to be able to breed guppies, I fortunately came to my senses, and have decided to go back to trying my hand at planted tanks.

    The first tank is a 2 ft low tech setup, that I keep Red Cherry Shrimp in.

    Plants
    Cryptocoryne Wendtii Brown
    Cryptocoryne Retrospiralis
    Cryptocoryne Crispatula var Balansae
    Limnophila Aromatica
    Bacopa Monnieri
    Anubias Nana Petite
    Corkscrew Vallisneria
    Bucephelandra Melawi

    Lights
    Zetlight Lancia ZP4000-590 running off the Horizon app.

    Filtration
    Cascade 150 HOB with Seachem Matrix

    Nutrients
    Seachem Flourish 1ml once a week
    Seachem Excel 1ml every second day
    Root tabs with Osmocote Plus

    Livestock
    RCS that are multiplying very rapidly
    6 x Otocinclus
    7 x Nerite Snails.
