Well I just got my tank with ASA on/off valve. I put everything together and used teflon tape on most of the connections. The problem I have now is finding a place to fill the tank with co2. Called the welding supplies and paintball stores to fill it but couldn't find one. The only one that did refills was Harris Industrial Gasses which is close enogh to me but they don't do less than 5lbs. I have a 20 oz tank.
In case I missed something, need something, or didn't do something right just tell me.
Does anyone live in the Sacramento area has a place to go to refill that I missed.
Well its been a while since i updated on my tanks progress. I went out and got my co2 tank filled and got a diffuser coming in. When I ordered the lights they didnt come for 2 weeks so I contacted them and they said they are on backorder. I went ahead and cancelled the order and bought the Zoo Med T5HO light.
I chose to use eco-complete for substrate. Right now I have only 1 bag but will be putting another soon. The stem plants in the back are the ones I bought but forgot the names. The Amazon Swords I had for a really long time and they have been through everything. Right now I have 5 Rummy Nose Tetras but the pics are from before I got them.
Here are some pics. Please ignore the airline tubing.
Hello. Some things changed so I wanted to put up an update of how everythings going for those following. First thing is that I got another bag of eco-complete so I am at about 2in. Second is that I got some new plants. Blyxa Japonica and Dwarf Water Lettuce thanks to genetao.
I finally got a diffuser for my co2. My co2 ran out really quickly before because I wasn't used to controling the flow but i got it figured out and now its been a couple weeks and its still going strong.
It sucks but my rummynose tetras died because of an ich outbreak, but I hope I can get some more fish in there. Ideas?
Here are some pics of the progress sort of.
I found a snail in my tank a week or so ago. Can you guys ID it?
I would apreciate some tips on the "scape" or ideas. Thank for looking.
I'd recommend seachems clarity to help with the cloudy water. Good start so far. How long have you been running the tank before adding the tetras?
I got them about a month or so. It was probably because I didn't treat them fast enough and they all died.
Heres another update on the tank. The plants and inhabitants seem happy and thriving. Im planning on putting in some iron tablet in the eco complete to help the amazon sword and others that need it. The tablets really helped them in the 10g.
I got some rcs from antbug. Thanks. Some of the shrimps already shed and I have a nice growing colony and I have already spotted a few babies and most of the females have eggs.
Im probably not going to change much because Im planning to move in the next month or two and going to let everything just take its place and grow out. Here are some pics:
