This whole low tech project started with the breeding of my 'ancis'. I put all the little ancis into a 25l tank. When I started aquascaping , I reranged this one, too. I sold the ancis one after an other, now I keep only red cherrys.

Very nice Peter :) Has it always been 10w lighting, or did you start higher and lower it after things had established? I've just started a 15 litre tank and the 11w light I have over it looks pretty dull. It also doesn't light all of the tank unless I fiddle with the angle it rests at (Arcadia Arcpod).

Well, yes, it has been always 10W lighting. As you can see my tank is quiet dark, but it is mainly because of the riccia on the top of the water. These plants don't need more light, so i think it is enough.
