Hi shambhalove,

I love your tank. Three questions; can you give us a head on FTS? Also, What did you use to hang your light fixture (clips, brackets etc ...) and how high is it above your tank?

I appreciate your reply and again, great tank!

Thanks,
Northman

update on my green tank

A little update on my post from a while back. Low Tech Tank Show-and-Tell (low tech can be lush, too! =)

I have since, killed my vallisneria, thrown out the hornwort, put my java fern into another tank, taken out the rocks I had, and put in bogwood/driftwood with anubias nana and java moss. I have also moved some plants around, gotten a new filter (hate it!) and ordered another external filter.

My guppy population exploded! I've been giving them away, and tomorrow I'm probably giving most of them away. There is so much poop!

Anyways here is a video:

Thanks!

Which tank? I have a 20 and a 75 on here

I use chains with s hooks to hang all my fixtures, that way adjusting height is as easy as moving the hook up/down the links.

You can check out my journals for some more detail too.

I think your tank is really nice actually! I am in love with rimless tanks so thats my weakness. I have been thinking of removing the rim on my tank but not sure what that would do to my tank or tank glass.

Extrame and Canadianbettas your vals are so nice and lush! I can't seem to get mine to grow...made the mistake of using too much excell to control algae and killed the vals except the small few that re-grew...so decided to let the green algae grow...

Here's a low low for y'all
Custom 10gal, 2-T12s 20w ea.
HOB aqua clear 50
2-Marble Angel fish
1-Bristlenose Pleco
?-Assassin snails
These are pics of the tank after it was just built. This was gonna be a shrimp tank an I had over 30 red rili shrimp and they all died I think it was due to the amazon soil. This was the first time using it and I had a bad swing day n night of the KH I think, it was 0 in day n 40ppm night I tried to get help but got nothing so I'm gonna do another tank smaller with organic soil caped with black sand and try again anyway that's the tank as it stands. Tanks for lookin.


Plants/moss

My little angels.




Heres the pleco.
