Finally some photos...and more to come

When it is about planted aquarium, all talk is no good till you see what it runed out like. So finally here are some photos. These were taken 2 weeks after the final aquascape was done. Hope you enjoy these till I post more. I am guessing it will be 4-6 months for all the plants to be lush and beautiful so I'll try to post the updated photos every couple of weeks for the next few months.

Setup Log

Finally when its all done it time for routine maintenance and sharing the experience. First some statistical data. As mentioned earlier I did fishless cycling which really worked out well for me. I also tested the water parameters for 7 weeks till all the fish were added before moving to the routine maintenance schedule. Here in the cycling log for those 7 weeks. Note that I did not have much luck with iron measurement, but my LFS told me not to worry as long as I was maintaining my iron supplement running regularly at prescribed dossage. So far so good....
