Having left the filter on all night in the hope it might work some magic the next day I took a trip to my specialist Aquatics shop and purchased:-
1. A few rocks
2. Tropica Plants:-
2a 2 x Anubias barteri var. nana
2b 2 x Limnophila sessiliflora
2c 2 x Microsorum pteropus attached a pre-soaked piece of bogwood
2d 1 x Vallisneria sp. Gigantea
2e 1 x Hemianthus callitrichoides
3. Some reflectors for the kit T5 lights
4. The kids insisted on some glow in the dark plastic shells.
That afternoon I had my first attempt at planting the stuff in the tank, using no tweezers.
It is by no means a designer tank like most of the excellent tanks I have seen it the forum. But for my first attempt it looks interesting. I plan to put more plants in when funds allow.
I would like to see what happens to the Hemianthus callitrichoides if that carpets nicely.
Used cotton wool to wipe the air bubbles from inside the tank that formed whilst putting in the water first time.
