Substrate is ADA Aqasoil
Rocks are actually Petrified wood
Its Dwarf Baby tears in the foreground
Telanthera Rosefolia in the rear along with Ludwigia inclinata 'Green'.
Java moss tied to driftwood tree.
CO2 is a DIY with 2 litre soda bottle with a basic Yeast and Sugar mixture.
Here is the video I followed for the CO2
http://www.tankscapers.com/content/132-do-yourself-co2-system.html
Lighting is AquaticLife Dual Lamp T5 HO Freshwater Light Fixture - 2 x 18W - 20 in.
I created a video on youtube showing what I use to diffuse the co2.
Check that out here.

About a dozen Ghost and Red Cherry shrimp,
2 Nerite snails for Algae control. They work fantastic!!
6 Rasbora Harlequins
2 Fancy Tail Guppies
Tank is growing fast and inhabitants all doing well.

So how did you get you baby tears to grow... I have 8 wpg and I cant get it to carpet. I do hava ada but not the powdered but that shouldn't make a difference. I also use liquid ferts and have Co2 on it

8 wpg is really a lot of light. The general rule is 2wpg and I am using 3
I noticed the DIY CO2 started to kick in the 1st 2-days and things took off from there.
What are you doing for C02?
