    Here is my tank. It is a perfecto 25 gallon, so normal dimensions. The tank is injected with CO2 using a blueline regulator and a rex grigg reactor. I am not sure of the bubbles pre minute/second, but its fast and the drop checker turns green during the day. I run an eheim to power the reactor and for circulation. I think it is the 17 eheim just the classic one. I also dose the seachem iron and trace elements. Temperature is about 80. I am not sure of any other specs but let me know if I left anything out.

    FISH:
    2 sterbi corys
    2 panda corys
    8 otos
    7 cardinals
    6 neons
    2 pencilfish
    2 simese algae eaters
    2 bristlenose plecos

    INVERTS:
    lots of ammono shrimp
    5 red crystal shrimp
    lots of bumble bee shrimp
    2 cherry shrimp
    a few ghost shrimp

    PLANTS:
    corkscrew val
    swarf micro sword
    HC
    hydrocotyle
    purple cardinal
    crypt petichi (i think but not sure if the spelling is correct)
    crypt balansae (the wrinkled one)
    ludwigia
    green cabomba
    dwarf sag.
    java moss
    anubias nana

    Well thank you. Yeah the tank is new. I started it with the emersed method in June and have been slowly getting it up and running. I work at a pet store and my manager was big into planted tanks and since my mom wouldn't let me set up a saltwater tank while I was home from school, I thought I'd try a planted tank because I'd done pretty much everything so I wanted to tackle something new.

    Is that a problem? Should I be worried? All seems well.

    Awesome looking tank!


    I think you are fine, you dont add any fert other than iron and trace. The plants should keep the nitrate under control and produce plenty of oxygen in the water. I just keep a closer eye on the paramaters of a heavy load tank as they can sometimes swing more dramaticly. I run a 30 with similar load to what you have with no loss.
