New 5.5 gal planted
 
This time I'll try to do it better, I mean, the right way. Today I did set up my 5.5 gal tank, I'm using the filter (Top Fin 10) and the lamp (15 watts) that comes with the kit; I bought a Top Fin heater, just in case, because the room temp is on 77F, btw, I'm using the thermometer that was in the 55 gal tank, since I'm now using a digital one in the big tank.
This is the new tank with Bacopa caroliniana, Eleocharis parvula and some bulbs that seems to be Crinum thaianum, I've added 1.5 mililitres of Seachem Flourish.

first all I must to say, these are part of my first live plants, so, I've not seen the full grown of them yet, they says the bacopa can reach the 12" and the Eleocharis 4"

Okay. Well I think your tank will look really good once the plants get a bit bigger. I'm considering getting some kind of plants for my tanks but I'm not sure.

I'd be careful there... that's the weekly dose I use on my 20 gallon tank, and yours is 1/4 the size.

Thanks Geomancer!, actually I'm not using the seachem anymore, as you can figure, I had a algae problem, and did lost a lot of plants

Looks great! Do you use fert tabs, or just the liquid stuff?

Is all that growth still using the bulb that came with the tank? Or did you upgrade it?
