    First simple Planted "Tank"

    Hello all, after reading up at the forum over time and seeing some video regarding low maintenance tank.

    I have try to setup one. Its a real simple tank, it doesn't have co2, light, filter or animal at the moment.

    The tank is actually a storage container that cost like 20 buck for 3 of them. At the moment its day 3 now, no water change done.

    The guide on youtube has lighting. I'm trying to use natural sunlight.

    Here are some picture. Any guide or tip would be appreciated

    Thing to get would be :

    - more plant so i have 70-80% of the gravel covered.
    - root stick / fert stick for the background plant.
    - seachem flourish for micro.

    Question: will it be a breeding haven for mosquito if you do not have a filter or livestocks?

    Oops. I forget to mention that fish will be added on day 10 or so. Will be getting nano fish generally and keeping to one species.

    Saw a a real small reddish terta fish at pet mart. Roughly smaller than 1cm or so to control mosquito breeding.

    A oto or two of them / 5 or so shrimp.

    Thanks for the advise.

    As I'm not running filter, and will depend on the plant to maintain the tank. I would try to keep the livestock low and not go crazy and stock up on like 20 neon terta and 20 Malayan shrimp

    20 neon tetra won’t work in that tank with no filter at all. In fact even with a filter you are over stocked if you add 20Neon Tetras

    Yup. Thanks for the reminder. That's exactly what I said ^^

    I'm having 6 of glowlight tetra. And I added mosquito fern and water hyacinth in. Having a rectangular separator above so the mosquito fern doesn't cover the whole surface!

    Didn't attempt to feed on first day as I expect them to be adapting still.

    They response to Sera vipan which is flake base. But they are not swimming around much due to lack of water movement.

    But are actively chasing after the flake.

    Have another container with treated tap water on standby.

    It can be fitted with a HOF if there's a need to.

    Thanks again for the reminder!
