Having recently had a small planted tank started of basic then ended up with CO2 and that decided needed some extra space for plants and fish so decided to upgrade so here is it

When first setup



Now its had time to settle
 



Let's see how this grows CO2 , Ei dosing , LED and T5 lighting

I have 8 in total. 4 are the Bronze Corys like the one in your shot. I cant remember what the other 4 are.
I am in Leeds but willing to travel to drop them off (and look in other Aquatics Stores) would rather they went to someone that wants them as they were previously my Grandfathers but he passed away so I have been looking after them for the past year.
I have too many tanks on the go really and figured these would be the easiest to give away...
I'll try and see if I have any photo's of them

Popped to LFS today and treated the tank to a few more plants and some Cardinals hopefully the plants will carpet nicely.

CO2 still spot on and Green and checked PH seeing around 6.6 and out the tap its 7.6. The CO2 as it exits the diffuser is sucked strait up by the intake on the pump and no bubbles come from the outlet so see that as virtually 100% saturation and no CO2 really wasted.

I'm still currently using the other fert and will start the Ei on monday as easier to start at a complete week for dosing purposes.

Also added 200ml of purigen in the filter this will now be working to polish the water as I like nice clean water and so will the stock.

Here is a couple of pictures

Full tank shot



Looking down the tank



I will be adding more wood to the tank at some point with moss ect on to give the scape more height but all in good time
