To start, great job with this awesome forum (think I'm addicted to this forum) Spent to many hours reading about all the other tanks and issues, I love to learn everything about Planted Aquarium. Started with my first tank when I was 8-10 or so with some guppy's, then bought a bowfront 100l or so for African cichlids, started with my first planted tank when I was 16, but did not know a thing about it. When I moved to the USA, I started reading about planted tanks on this forum.
I was planning to redo my 55g (http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/my...00-nalu86.html
) with MTS, Started making some begin december, but with the snow and a lot of snow, it never dried.
For my b-day, my wife decided to buy me a 75g, so we got one and after cleaning the 75g, I broke down the 55g and made my badtub into a swamp with my odyssea cfs running on the tub, putted my fishies in a 10 gallon with a fluval 305 on in.
After the tank was in place, filed it 1/3 with water and putted the Cfs500 on the 75, I just putted all my plants in there, waiting for the MTS to be ready.
I could not wait any longer so I washed the soil again, and putted it in the bad tub with a fan on it and the heater on 110F, smells nice and swampy
The MTS is almost dry again for the official second time and my Potasium chloride should be here tomorrow so i'm going to start with the whole adventure. Looking really forward to this, I love to set up tanks and did 8 tanks in the last 8 months
Here is the setup:
75Gallon Aquarium 48"-18"-21"
Odyssea T5HO 4x 54w (will run 2-3 bulbs)
I have some plants but I'm not sure if I will use all of them.
Amazon Sword (Echinodorus amazonicus)
Banana Plant (Nymphoides aquatica)
Help me choosing some stem plants.
I was thinking about
dwarf baby tears
give me some more options please.
8 neon tetra
1 female ram (and 16 fry <1inch that I will use some from)
1 bronze cory
8 neon tetra
15 celestial pearl danio (if they go together with the other fish)
10 cory's (panda and albino)
and ghost shrimp as life food living in the tank together.
Here are some pics from when I put the plants in the 75g after they came out of the bad tub.
More pics are coming soon!
Again sorry for my English, i still work on it!
