    Jeffrey's 29G Dutch

    This is the tank that you all helped me build! I'm going for a Dutch style, so this has to grow in quite a bit, and there is no hardscape.

    Setup/Equipment:
    29 Gallon tank
    5 lb CO2 tank running 2-3 bps
    Sunsun 702B canister filter - provides almost 10x flow
    Finnex Planted+ 24/7 30" running at (I think) max. (The IR sensor is bad, so it's stuck on whatever setting it is).
    Unknown brand aquasoil capped with pool filter sand

    Dosing ADA ferts at prescribed levels (until I run out):
    Green Brighty Step 1
    Brighty K
    Green Brighty Special Lights
    Green Gain
    ECA

    Plants (approximately from back right to front left):
    Microsorum pteropus sp. Needle (Needle leaf java fern)
    Limnophila aromatica (?)
    Ludwigia repens
    Hygrophila corymbosa 'angustifolia'
    Cabomba
    Echinodorus grisebachii (Amazon sword)
    Pennywort
    Rotala bonsai
    Brownie buce
    Fissidens
    Pellia
    Bolbitis
    Other various plants I'm not sure of at the moment

    Nice one man, so remember that stem plant you got from me with the round shaped leaf? Im thinking its some sort of bacopa, I have more for you if youd like some. Whenver we meet again, Lmk! Also what type of fish are you planning to get?

    First-week growth. I added the Hygrophila and moved the CO2 diffuser to the other side.

    Still filling in. I thought the pellia (front right) would grow a lot faster, but it seems like it hasn't really grown much at all...

    And that one in between the star grass and hygro angustifolia (anyone have an ID on that?) seems to have taken a dive in the last couple weeks...I'm hoping it's just inadequate light, as that's a fairly easy fix.

    Moved a few plants around. Still trying to get a good feel for arranging plants in the "Dutch way".
