oheresy's 75g low tech/low light aquarium (56k)
I got a 75g tank and stand a while back, and was intending to make it a reef tank, but have decided to make it my second planted tank. This will be my first low tech/low light tank.
I'm thinking about doing the dry start method. I'm going to order the substrate and heater this week. Once I get the substrate, I'll work on the hard scape. I'm thinking a nice large manzanita trunk and some branches. I can't remember what filter I got with the tank, so I'll update that tomorrow (working tonight).
Tank: 75g standard
Substrate: AquaDurt Black Diamond
Lighting: 2x Solarmax HE T5 double lamp light system 48"
Filtration: Filstar XP3
Power head: Koralia Nano
Heat: Hyder ETH In-line aquarium heater 300 watt
Controller: Reef Keeper Lite Net
Cover: glass top (I'll probably change to open or netted)
Myriophyllum Aquaticum (Parrots Feather)
Red Java Fern
Cryptocoryne, wendtii 'Florida Sunset'
Anubias, Petite Nana (Anubias bareri var. nana 'petite') or Anubias, Nana (Anubias barteri v. Nana)
5x Otocinclus vestitus
20x Chili Rasbora
20x Neon Tetra
20x Ember Tetra
20x Harlequin Rasbora
20x Amano shrimp
20x Red Cherry Shrimp
10x various Nerite snails
I am definitely looking for suggestions, especially on dry starting flora. Thanks for reading. I'll update as I can.
