    Greetings from Finland. I'm a new (planted tank) aquarist and set my first scape up 101 days ago. I love epiphytes, especially bucephalandra and mosses. I went straight to the deep end and have a high tech setup with autodosers doing EI and pressurized CO2. I started with a fully planted tank and still managed to add more plants. My plants are the following:

    • Marsilea Hirsuta
    • Marsilea Crenata
    • Micranthemum Monte Carlo
    • Hemianthus Cuba
    Mid/Background plants:
    • Echinodorus Grisebachii Amazonicus (bleherii I think, narrow leaves)
    • Echinodorus Grisebachii Tropica
    • Echinodorus Dschungelstar Nr 2. Kleiner Bär
    • Cryptocoryne Wendtii Green
    • Bacopa Compact
    • Bacopa Caroliniana
    • Anubias barteri var. nana 'Petite' ('Bonsai')
    • Anubias barteri var. nana 'Mini Mini'
    • Riccardia sp. chamedryfolia (coral moss)
    • Bucephalandra sp. 'Mini Needle Leaf' (tissue culture, all of them died)
    • Bucephalandra pygmaea 'Bukit Kelam / Sintang' (Wavy green)
    • Bucephalandra sp. 'Lamandau Mini Red'
    • Bucephalandra sp. 'Mini Catherinae' (these came covered in BBA and ruined my tank, still recovering)
    • Bucephalandra sp. 'Red'
    • Bucephalandra sp. 'Lagoon'
    • Bucephalandra sp. 'Alamandaa V3 Dark'
    • Bucephalandra sp. 'Aragon'

    I am also an owner of a 3D printer which I have used thus far for creating a small cap to hide the LED of my autodoser (the light is so bright!), and making improvements on the eheim skim350.

    I'm looking forward to learning more about EI, because frankly most of the advice found online just repeats itself and does not discuss the matter more into detail.
