LBC's 35 gallon fishtank
This is my 35 gallon planted tank. It has several species of plants and fish in it and has been running like this since March. Many of the plants do not seem to want to grow well, but that is probably attributed to the low tech setup that I prefer.
Tank - 35 gallon 36x18x12.5
Subtrate - 1/8-1/4 rock
Filter - AquaClear 300 HOB
Lights - 2 - T5 39watts each, and 6 blue leds for moonlights
Ferts - none right now, but I had been using liquid Plant Gro NPK and N with iron, no CO2.
Doing well - Anubias nana(flowering), cryptocoryne wendtii, cryptocoryne willisii, echinodorus bleheri, echinodorus tenellus, another echinodorus with thinner leaves than bleheri, val.
Not doing well - rotala rotundifolia, ludwigia repens.
Well it is starting to look like most of these plants won't grow over 10" without either some stronger light or CO2. This tank was originally supposed to be a nursury of sorts until I get my 75 gallon tank setup, but I will probably do both tanks.
10 - Rasbora Hengeli
3- Siamese Algae Eaters
7 - Black Skirt tetras
5 - Bronze corys
6 - Serpae tetras
1 - big shrimp 5" or so big, harasses the cories
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thankyou.
