-Ludwiga repens
-Red val
-Hornwort (submersum) - Just until algea goes down

-Still looking for echinodorous tennelus in empty spots and eleocharis acicularis that will go where the hornwort is
-The anubias barteri floating there is waiting to be rehomed

Fish:
-4 Otoinculus affinis
-7 Serpae tetras
-10-12 ghost shrimp

You so cool.

use a co2 injector as your fish arent sufficeint to supply it themselves. imo thats a pretty nice tank. all it needs is a co2 injector and maybe some plecos?

I have a nutrafin ladder and 2 2l bottles of DIY CO2. The CO2 stays steady at 30ppm. As for the plecos, they would tear up my glosso, that's why I have otos.

You so cool.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
