Glossostigma elatinoides and Dwarf Hairgrass Tank (4 weeks later)

Phew...manage to squeeze some time from my busy days to update on my Glossostigma and hairgrass tank.

And here it is....after 4 weeks of setup, enjoy :)

Here's the changes I did...

On Week 3:
- filled up the tank
- added a hang on back filter (a small one, just to make some water movement, and do some simple filtering job, and guess what...the media is brand new, and I used it without cycling! After all, my main objectives is to let the plants do the job)

On Week 4:
- added CO2 (DIY)
- and some Red Cherry Shrimp somewhere between week 3 and 4
- reduce the lighting period from 16 hours to 10 hours somewhere between week 3 and 4

After adding the CO2, the Glossostigma started bubbling, love them :)

Actually I wanted to add some larger rocks as hardscape into the tank in week 3, but decided not to, yet. I'll spare the rocks later, as for now, I want to enjoy watching the plants fill up the tank, and see my shrimps breeds.
