McG's high tech 29g
Tank - 29 gallon. DIY stand made from a kitchen cabinet.
Mineralized top soil, capped with Flora Max Midnight (discontinued, got it at petsmart for cheap! high cec!)
Lighting - 2x36w AH Supply kits that I custom fit in a standard 29g light hood
CO2 - Aquatek regulator and 5lb tank. I used to use a DIY Cerges reactor that was connected to a fluval 306 but this time I am going to try a DIY in-tank reactor made from a
1.5 liter pop bottle. We will see how that goes! viewtainer. I found the idea on Tom Barr's forum.
Equipment - Fluval 405 and Fluval 306. The 306 will be used with the in-tank reactor.
Ferts - EI dosing and Osmocote Plus capsules
Plants - Limnophilia Aromatica, Marsilea minuta,
and dwarf sag. Staurogyne repens, and Ludwigia red.
Fish - at the moment I have 2 black phantom tetras and 2 white tetras with blue stripes on their top. I will be getting a pair of german blue rams and a school of small fish.. maybe rasboras.
