Re: Anubias Only Tank---Aaaagainnn!!!-Day 1 Pics

Postby SanamMarik » Tue May 30, 2017 6:16 pm

its been a long time that I am addicted to growing anubias and hence dedicated a 1' cube earlier...but the plants have out grown the tank and more space is now required...so I am starting a new tank for it.

Tech Specs-
Tank size - 24*15*8...lesser height coz anubias are cursed to stay short :P so, if i keep more water height, it will just be wastage of lights, ferts and filtration capacity...and glass, silicon glue and time,money and labor too :P
Substrate- soilrite and some sand mix- capped with mosquito net and thn sand/sand gravel...unable to decide which one should i go with... :-\
filter- 4watt sobo ipf...will change to 6watt if found necessary
lights- DIY led fixture from led tubes provided by govt under Ujala scheme... :D quite cheap...2000lm @230 bucks only :x :x
ferts- diy as always
co2-citric based sysem
flora- Anubias nana, petite, broad leaf, coin leaf, nana gold, coffeefolia and barteri some may b, nt sure - a total of may b smwhr arnd 200...will count before planting :D
fauna- beneficial bacteria :P

so the progress as of now---
the build-

putting substrate

Putting the net

Once i get to decide on whether to put sand or sand gravel, will update the progress together with the driving factors to make the decision...

So this is all i have done and now stuck at deciding....if u guyz have any suggestions or questions...please feel free to come forward with your views/questions... :-bd

Until next update....

Dada go for sand gravel as anubius roots are hard and straight sand can get loose and it can come out from the substrate bt in case of sand gravel i think they are capable to hold the anubius root system.. :)

but u have had done a anubius tank already so I think u know it better..

Good luck :ympeace:

quick update---went with sand gravel only as i used it previously too...the thing is there are so many plants now and to me it would b quite big of a risk to experiment with 200 anubias at this point of time...later on I may try with lesser count with sand in a sml tank...
water is filled up...jst waiting for the lights to be ready...as I am doing the diy so its taking some time...the light i am going to put in is presently lighting other tanks, so unless i make replacement for those tanks...i am unable to start the anu tank...hoping to get the diy completed soon....its so laborious dat i get too lathergic by the thought of doing it....managed to start the process...shld be done by this week i hope... :)
