Do you have a journal for the tank? I love to watch 40 breeder scapes progress.

Thanks J! I shoot with the Canon XS. That shot was taken with the 100mm f/2.8 macro lens.

It's in the low-tech forum right now. I pm'ed a mod to see if it can be moved to this forum. It's called "and it begins". Not much yet, just a description of what fauna is going in to start with, equipment, livestock...that kind of thing. No pictures yet. Although, the tanks (yes, tanks) are in place and plumbed up, so I might have a few pics tomorrow.

Edit: they moved it.

Wow! Very sick hardscape dude, I'm subscribed.

I swear I see a Chocolate Poso Tylomelania snail in your FTS... 1/4 of the way from left on substrate directly below where the wood meets the rock.

Great Hardscape. Will you put more plants in this tank or just let the ones already in there?

Looking forward to the pictures!

Thanks man! You are correct, I have a lone Poso Snail in here. I'm hoping he'll help clean up the driftwood fungus I've got going now.

Thanks! I'm definitely going to have more plants in here eventually. I'm working on a deal with my supplier (I work at a LFS) where I'll be able to get plants directly from FAN, and if that works out I'll be getting lots of new stuff for the tank. I have some more Anubias at home I need to put in this tank, I just haven't yet.

Here's how the livestock list stands now: 10 Pristella Tetras, 5 Nannostomus beckfordi, 5 Otocinclus, 2 Hemiloricaria fallax, 1 Laetacara curviceps, 8 Corydoras pygmaeus, and a couple random snails. The only other fish I want to add are half a dozen gold Stiphodon gobies. I had them about a month ago at work, but a friend bought them all and I'm trying to get more.

I'll post new pics tomorrow. The fungus is gone completely, but now I'm getting GSA due to the CO2 tank leaking and emptying in 2 weeks. It wasn't even the seal where the regulator connects to the tank, it was where the main knob screws into the regulator itself. Hopefully they'll replace it for me.

I also added a couple more fish: 3 Tateurndina ocellicauda (Peacock Gudgeons), and 1 Centromochlus perugiae. The Gudgeons are awesome little fish, the cat I haven't even seen since I put him in the tank. There are so many hiding spots, that doesn't surprise me at all though.

Thanks jacari!

Well I'm sitting here with my Gerrhosaurus plopped down on my shoulder just chilling out, and he told me I needed to post new pictures of the tank. So here ya go.







Sorry the quality stinks. I really need to improve the lighting around the tank, or learn to take good aquarium pictures.

Tell me about it . A ring flash for my macro lens is my next camera purchase though.

Love your tank. Giving me great ideas for the new 40g breeder I bought a couple of weeks ago.

How would I subscribe to your thread? I haven't figured that out yet!

Thanks,
Patti
