    Talking New 5.5 Gallon Planted


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hey everyone.

    Finally finished setting up my 5.5 gallon planted tank today. I have been wanting to do something like this for a while now, and am excited to have it set up. The ultimate plan is to add some Red Cherry Shrimp or Yellow Sakura Shrimp and create a colony. I am waiting for the tank to become more established and finish purchasing my school of Microrasbora's. For now, here is the stocking list and specs:

    Stocking List:
    Six Boraras maculatus (aka Pygmy Rasbora, Dwarf Rasbora, Spotted Rasbora)
    -Hopefully increasing the school to 10-12 soon
    10 Red Cherry Shrimp/ Yellow Sakura Shrimp

    Plants:
    Baby Tears
    Rotala indica
    Marsilea hirusta
    Java Fern
    Riccia fluitans

    Specs:
    5.5 gallon tank
    Finnex FugeRay Planted + Clip on LED
    Flourish Black Sand
    ZooMed Nano 10 canister filter
    PenPlax Heater

    I am dosing daily with Flourish Excel and weekly with Flourish Comprehensive. The lights are on for eight hours a day, but with a split photo period from 7a-11a, and 5p-9p.
