Re: An Anubias only tank - An Experiment-Update 130 days

Postby SanamMarik » Thu Oct 27, 2016 2:01 pm

Hi all, its been quite some time I started any planted tank. so Finally went ahead and started a Anubias only tank. I have heard that its challenging to maintain the tank parameters to keep algae at bay. So, just trying my luck... :P

Tank Specs-
size- 1' cube
Substrate- Soilrite capped with sand gravel
Filter- None as of now, will install if i find it to be necessary. Making the setup more challenging :D
Flow Maker- sunsun 2/3watt pump for circulation nd chopping co2 bubbles from the diffuser
Water kH-5
Ferts- Macro- CaNO3, MgSO4, KNO3, K2SO4 and KH2PO4; Micro - Rexolin CXK
Lights- 18watt PLL lamp
CO2- 0.25-0.5bps
WC Schedule- Once Week 80-90%


Flora -
1) Anubias Nana,
2) Anubias nana petite,
3) Anubias Nana Gold,
4) Anubias Barteri,
5) Anubias Coin Leaf,
6) Anubias Broad leaf and another Anubias strain that i dont know d name :D

Fauna- too small space and too much flow for fauna to do well. so the list is empty here.

Experiment Goal- to learn and maintain a Anubias only tank w/o using any sort of biocide to kill algae forcefully. I will however dismantle the tank once the anubias form a carpet, considering it as Mission Accomplished :D

Here is a pic of the tank...sorry fr mob cam quality, will upload a better version soon. :)
