So for Christmass my sweety bought me a new toy. 75 gallon show tank (55g ft print just taller) made by SeaClear. It is used but in exceptional shape and the price allowed me to pick up a filter and lighting.
Eventually it will house my 2prs of discus, a couple schools of smaller tetras (cardnals or rummy nose), 2pr of dwarf ciclids, and a school or corys (panda and skunk).
I'm not planning on a heavily planted tank. With a lack of floor space in the tank and overall height it will be a challange to balance. I do have some very nice pieces of drift wood coming from my freind in CA. It is dried and cured manzanita.
This is a pic I found online and more or less the overall design I'm looking for,
Any help identifying the over all plants pictured would be appreciated.
As for the rest of the equipment right now I have a:
Hagen 48" 2xT5 Glo fixture for lighting
Aquatop CF-400 with UV for filtration (hard plumbed through excisting bulk heads in tank, 1 to filter and 2 returns)
Hydore 300 inline heater
60lbs, Caribsea FloraMax black substrate
I am looking at adding CO2. Who make a nice complete set-up?
Well thats it for now. Doing to finish up leveling and leak checking the tank tomorrow. Very excited!!
