Charrr89's official 17 gallon journal

After having so many tanks... And moving and selling everything. I've settled in to finding this tank... It's not an ada. I wish!! I got a good deal so who would complain??
So today is 01/31/14

Anyways.. I had some plants emersing downstairs of my home, seems like someone got curious and left the top open too long! I work 12-14 hours a day so... I didn't see it till my day off!

So anyways on to my journal!

I obly had 1 patch of Monte Carlo left so I'm doing a DSM it's worked for me for so long so why not ?

My specs....:

Mr. Aqua 17 gallon
Finnex ray 2 (awesome trade dmenace!!)
9L new ada Amazonia II
-searching for some lily pipes when my tank is up and running.
I have a 2215 currently running on my little farming tank.... Which is also reviving my plants I lost a Few days ago! (Fingers crossed)

Also soaking my driftwood in there! Haha
Not a show tank. Just a holding cell...

Plants in dsm:
Monte Carlo
-will add more upon revival of other plants

Planned plants:
Crypt wendtii
Blyxa japonica
Driftwood to be covered in Xmas moss
Bucephalandra lamandau (picking up from Bikercarl!)
Bucephalandra brownie ghost(picking up from manini!)

More to come as progress starts to go down...

Planned fish:
Shrimp or pea puffers

Will post more as I go.... Definitely keepin up my journal this time...

2/16

Made a few changes! And got my drift wood from Tom Barr guna get that soaking ASAP!

Not much done. Flooded my tank early because my wild shrimp freed her berries in my 11 gallon and I just got some
Dark blue velvets that needed a home..... still working on the actual scape, going to pull the drift wood from soaking possibly Sunday.....

these guys are super happy

Reorganized my 11.4....

Haha.. Got ur text when I was working... Hopefully the shrimps like me as much as I like dem... And I can create a large colony of it. Mostly for personal.. I had the load of cherries before so I'm hoping I can get a huge load of blue velvets

Anyways... Still messing with the wrong tank... Keep putting my 17 gallon on hold... Guna find a big container to keep my shrimp in until I'm actually ready..
