Planted the 125 :)

Planted the 125 discus tank. Lighting and filtration upgrades in the works. The plants need to fill in a bit, especially the marsilea in the center. I broke it apart and separated it so that it hopefully fills in a little easier.

Looks great! I especially like the wood and the overall simplicity

That looks awesome! Can't wait to see it in a few months after everything has filled in, especially in front of the driftwood.

Thanks for all the kind words. This setup was really really cheap. The filter and lighting are being upgraded but as far as the tank itself goes, it was only $100 with the stand included. The sword plants were on sale at pet supermarket a few weeks ago, so we got them for 1.75-2 dollars apiece. The driftwood was bought in a large group so it was less than $10. And the awesome planted tank substrate is made of mineralized topsoil and oil-dri. The mineralized topsoil is labor intensive, but well worth it. Total cost of substrate <$10.

Thanks. I mix kno3/k2so4/mgso4+7h2o along with csm+b into 500ML of water and use it for ferts. It's along the lines of the basic pps recipe.

I also dose glutaraldehyde (active ingredient in excel). The lighting at the moment is inadequate, it's only a single t5ho grow light, but it does keep the plants growing and green. I'm planning to a dual bulb setup in the near future, but probably won't do any more because i don't want to go pressurized co2.

Glutara is only for a co2 subatitute right? If not what? And where did you get your kno3? Can't find it anywhere except online
