I have been wanting a 40g breeder since a week after I purchased my 29g Aquarium. Lauralee recommended the 29g to me, it was my first jump into a planted aquarium after years of working with monster fish with big teeth, and it was a solid recommendation but the 40g just has amazing dimensions that allow me to get the Piranha that I have been eyeing for awhile. I finally bought one, the last one, at my Petco's $/gal sale this past Sunday. Wicked Excited for this build!
(Will be here mid next week)
I have wanted an LED light for a long time and I finally talked the wife into letting me get one. Hoping to get the Apex Controller for Xmas so I can have some simulated Thunder/Lightning!!!
DIY UGF: Connected to a Marineland 350 (It is currently set up for Reverse UGF although I can configure to also be an intake if needed)
Link to the Build: DIY UG Filter
Eheim 2217: This has been my work horse since I got back into the hobby.
Inline UV Sterilizer
Inline CO2 Diffuser
ADA Aquasoil I (I've had 2 extra bags of this forever but I just ended up using my used ADA Aquasoil from 29g. May add some new soil in shallow places.)
Using my Ultimate CO2 setup from GLA. I have had it for 3 years now and it is awesome. Never fails.
I used to exclusively dose Rootmedic but now that Justin is taking a leave of absence I am looking for a new liquid fertilizer supplier
Eriocaulon Parkeri (lots of it)
Ruby Red Spilo (Once the tank is exactly how I want it since scaping will be infinitely more difficult with him/her in the tank)
