Postby sam_de » Mon May 22, 2017 11:31 am

Hi all Aquarius scappers

Here is my new diy tank

Complete DIY substrates Tank
Tank size 36*18*18
LED 4 *18 watt Led batten running for 8-10 hours a day
first Layer is Cocopeat
second layer is a thin layer of vermicpost
third layer mixed of Latarite and Soilrite in 60:40 ratio
forth layer is river sand
than finally covered with ADA Amazonia a thin layer just to get the black texture...

Diy co2 as wel

nice tank bro...but u made a quite gud mistake...Soilrite and Laterite should Never be used together...they are opposite in their chemical nature and hence nullify each other's chem properties...
