3ft Planted Tank

I scaped this on the 4/4/16. I moved some decor and plants from the 4ft planted into this tank. Still got a bit of maturing to do and growing in

Currently home to neons (i added another 10 today), cardinals, ember tetras, dwarf loaches & peppermint BN

Thank you

I am starting to see some spreading of the hairgrass...happy about that!
I have also dont the 1st trim of the stem plants and replanted the trimmings
Because the tank is open top i am finding i am having to top the water quite frequently, while annoying, isnt that hard to do.

Delapool - The setup didnt take very long at all, probably a few hours. Fairly low maintenance tank actually. I need to top it up every few days, water change weekly, i dose daily with dino spit, and twice a week with flourish

3ft Planted Tank

That's nice on the hair grass! Whenever mine got established the loaches would take it out

Are you dosing over for the dino spit?

I dont have any loaches large enough, so the hairgrass can establish well, then i will add some other known plant disturbers lol

Dosing over?
