Aquatic, Light and Magic


as you can see...
the socialist plant has completely taken over vital parts of the free republic community tank.

plants- include stargrass, pogo, willow, pink sunset, pearlweed, hydrocotyl japan, ludwigia and some sort of red rotala
fish- include neon tetras, pearl danios, guppies, harlequin rasboras and black neons
shrimp- include ghosts and cherrys

150lt tank, 2 sets of lights, citric co2 setup, ada v2 soil, Fluval canister filter, only nutrients i added were potassium and nitrogen every 2 days, fish and snails provided the rest.

please note, i waited for the filter to clean the water after every shot and did tests throughout it.
dont try this unless you know what you are doing
