My girlfriend talked to the Anthropology professor and found out that it maybe some kind of fossilized coral, because it has some quartz. Now I have to take it to the Geology professor to hear what he thinks. Sadly he is on summer break so it might be awhile.
Well it’s been 2 ˝ months since I planted this tank. I got some better lights, Satellite Power Compact a 10K daylight and 460nm actinic with white lunar light at 65watts. It’s a lot better than what I had on it.
I decided to do some redecorating to open it up. That way I could see the fish, plus I some new rocks I wanted to use. Here is what it looked like after 2 ˝ months.



This is what it looks like redesigned.






Some kind of Crypt?






Bumble Bee Goby still thriving.


Blue Tetra


Glass X-Ray Tetra


I don’t know which design I like better.

You're tank looks really nice.

Redline Barbs get huge. You'll be needing a bigger tank soon. The BB goby is so cute!

What is your dosing regiment now with the new lights? How about with the old lights?

Do you know your co2 level? (with new and old lights if you know)

I've had 5 iron plant sticks buried around the tank the whole time. I use 5 plant tabbs 11-15-20 every week and a half when I do my water changes.
I do not know the co2 level.
