Just set this 5 gallon high tech tank up a week ago. 15 watt Fluval led, Dennerle scapers flow canister filter and CO2 injection. Dwarf hairgrass, water clover, Rotala indica and a couple other plants.

Should fill in nicely once everything is dialed-in/balanced, and established. Looks like you are using disposable CO2 cartridges? Keep us posted on your progress.

Yeah, disposables…not the most cost effective approach but it’s such a small aquarium that I didn’t want to invest in a large CO2 tank and regulator with a solenoid…once these run out I’ll get a larger bottle that’s still somewhat smallish, lol. Space is also an issue in its location. I’ll likely build another larger tank with more bells and whistles…as long as I can take out a second mortgage on my house. I rescaped it a bit, swapped out the larger stones up front for smaller ones. Once the new background plants establish, I’ll trim them back and plant the trimmings for more density.
