    Re: 4ft planted tank

    All ready for Chinese New Year. Chiller in operation at 27.5C with many bps of co2. Light set on for 6 hours daily.
    Added some livestocks. 31 pieces of platinum rummy nose, 10 Cory Pygmy, 11 otos, 4 roseline torpedo and a few Yamato.
    The plants are slowly stabilizing in the tank. Just did a trim on the Japanese hairgrass and erect moss.



    All comments welcome.

    Nice setup!
    like the left side , feel that the right side is a bit heavy... maybe can soften it with plants?
    love your gujings too!!
    may I have a close up look at your erect moss?!!

    The close up of the erect moss is as follows. Trim them till quite short.


    Actually the intention for the right side is to have all buceps at the driftwoods but most of them melted during the setup. Also, the only rock placed erected in the set up is conspicuously seen at the right side and that gives the heavy look feel. On the left side, erected moss on the branches and mini nana and mini bolbits at certain parts of the driftwoods.

    Re: 4ft planted tank

    Finally have some time to upload some pictures of different plants. Be warned, picture intensive. Haha.
    Starting with the livestocks. First up is my ever hungry and active platinum rummy nose. Also in the shot, you can see the roseline torpedo, a fish which I love a lot.

    Next sundodanio axelrodi which do not school or shoal much, yet they don't hide. However, they are terrorized by the bullies, platinum rummy nose. Apologies for the lousy shot. Bought a total of 3 batches of 10 pieces and lost about 7 pieces. Nice little fish.

    My Japanese hairgrass is getting more lush.

    Blood vomit gujings and lobelia cardinalis mini. I split the gujings from the mother plants and these are all plantlets. Like the red in their centre. Growing well.

    Starting from the back, downoi flanked by reckecill mini at their front left and staurogyne sp brown at the right. 2 lonely staurogyne purple between blood vomit gujings and staurogyne sp brown. Hope my orientation of the plants is not too confusing.

    2 healthy and bushy gujings which are one of the focus in my tank.

    Eriocaulon goias recovered after a major melting and young crypto wendii kompakt

    A crop of ammonia crassicaulis(front), ludiwigia white (middle), ludiwigia senegalis(back)

    What are on the right driftwood? Of course, buceps. It cannot go wrong with these colourful plants thought they melted on me during the initial setup.

    Last but not least, left driftwood. Mini nana, erect moss and mini bolbit.

    I am using an inline atomizer so you can see all the bubbles like sprite. Some like it while some don't appreciate it. Hahahahahaha. For me, I like it because I can see the area which the co2 is carried to.
    I got the gujings from someone in carousell. He grew them from seeds according to him.

    Re: 4ft planted tank

    FTS looks great! thanks for the update. I noticed that there is a depression/crater in the middle where the dwarf hair grass are. was the soil depression intentional?

    Yes it was intentional to give the impression of depth if one looks from different perspectives (left, front, right)
