Jmlampert23's tank journal (9/1/12 UPDATE)

I have a 26 gallon all-glass bow front. I have kept many different tanks but I have been away from the hobby for about 3 years. I am getting back into it. I plan on upgrading to a larger tank after the new year.

Lighting: zoomed 24" t5-ho one 67k and one color max
Substrate: one bag of fluorite
Co2: Reef Fanatic co2 system installed

Hydor inline heater because I am not fond on the internal heater on my filter


Flora
Amazon swords
Micro swords
Dwarf hair grass
Giant hair grass
Anubias nana
Moss balls

Livestock
None yet

Since I took this picture it did a little re-scaping. I took the hair grass and cut it into pieces and attached the anubias to some rocks. I am hoping my heater shows up this week so I can ass some livestock. I am also waiting for my co2 system to show up in the mail also. More pics to come



Co2 system installed




Next inline hydor heater and I did some rescaping

So I completely took my tank apart and replanted everything. I did not like the way it looked. I got some different rocks and rearranged everything. WHAT DO YOU THINK? Input is appreciated.

you need some long twisted wood/branches in there. the hole layout isn't high enough for your tank. Or you can build a pile of rocks, going upwards.

I would open up the foreground and put those plants in the back of the tank. It looks a little bit too crowded with everything up on the glass and it will give some depth to your scape.

I have some more hair grass coming in the mail next Friday along with a piece of wood yo go in the corner where the filter intake is. I think once I get that piece of wood and more grass in the back it will look better. I ran out of hair grass. Plus the camera on my iPad stinks and the water is a little cloudy since I was rummaging around in it for a couple hours
