This 20gal has been through a lot, it was used as a rodent cage before it was picked up at a yard sale, then it was a "planted tank", then a goldfish tank, a fry tank, and now it will be a true planted aquarium for my girls that are in need of an upgrade. I kept my male plakat in there for while with mystery snails and a little pleco. Then all that was changed yesterday when I dirted the tank and capped it with sand. Before: super low light, had a 17watt florescent tube light. The glass pie pans and fish bowl were test planters for micro swords, dwarf baby tears, ludwigia and rotala Now: I pilled some cryt wendtii runners from the 10gal sorority and threw them in this tank. Also switched to an LED beams-work light that may or may not be the best so we'll see. I don't mind running both the LED and the florescent light at the same time. I use a styrofoam bowl to keep the duckweed from getting sucked up the filter. Top view: Baby tears, hoping to see some decent growth from these. I won't add the girls and bottom feeders in yet. I'm waiting to see if there is an ammonia spike from adding all the soil. I have an established filter going so hopefully it will take care of things.
