AdamScott Posted April 16, 2021 Share Posted April 16, 2021 After 2 years of research and planning I'm proud to say I've finally set up my first planted aquarium! 😁 HUGE shoutout to @Cory for all the instructional Youtube videos, blog posts and advice on aquariums. And thank you to you all for the insight and motivation to start my own underwater ecosystem!! All the plants pictured came from the Co-Op and have a few more on the way from LRB Aquatics. Below are my tank specs: Aquarium Size: 75gLighting: Fluval 3.0Substrate: 160lbs of Eco-CompletePlants: Pogostemon stellatus octopus, Anubias, Val, Crypt Wendtii, red dwarf lily bulb, (pearl weed and rotala rotundifolia coming soon)Filtration: Sponge filter, Tidal 75 (on low flow)Fertilizer: Aquarium Co-Op Easy Green and Root Tabs I've been seeing conflicting responses on when to best start fertilizing a new tank. Plants were just planted today and not sure if best to wait a few days to acclimate or begin fertilizing and planting root tabs immediately. I am also looking for lighting settings based on my Fluval 3.0 and depth of aquarium. Any advice is appreciated and glad to officially be part of this amazing community 😄 1 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
