Hi all, I said - I'm new to plants but was determined to give my CPDs a home to be happy of. This is my first attempt at an aquascape. Tank is 180l, 100 x 40 x 45 cm CO2 80bpm, pH 6.5 -7, kH 4 Fish: Celestial Pearl Danios Amano shrimp Otocinclus Plants: Sagittaria Subulata Eleocharis Vivipara Glossostigma Elatinoides Heteranthera Zosterifolia Luwigia Natans & Mullerti Lindernia Rotundiflora Rotala Rotundifolia Alternathera Rosaefolia Eichhornia Azurea Aponogeton Crispus Crypt Blassii Lilaeopsis brasiliensis The idea was to give the CPDs a wall of tall plants across the full length of the back wall to hide and spawn in and at the same time have a tank that I enjoyed looking at (in my dining room). I've learnt a lot since then & would do things a lot differently, but please, all comments greatly received for the future. startup had to be done over 3 days, as I waited for different suppliers to get plants to me. Things started off OK and then the dreaded algae problem raised it's head. I ended up with a stable (and I thought passable tank until visiting here) until I went away to Canada for 3 weeks, my CO2 bottle emptied into the tank almost killing the occupants the day after I left. Of course 3 weeks without CO2 gave it's own problems but things are recovering now. I've started giving it shape with trims now but don't have photos yet.
