Ron's 20g long

Hi all. I don't have multi tank syndrome (yet?) but I had some spare equipment and whatnot and put this tank together.

Satellite LED +
Fluval C3
Eheim Jaeger

So far so good. Using water and media from my primary 90g. Wood is still leeching tannins.

Waiting for the needle leaf java fern to grow out and block the HOB from view. That might take a while. lol.

love the hardscape, are you going to use a carpeting plant?
if you were to move the Hob to the right, and got a black background, it would be difficult to notice anyway.
looking great so far

Looking good. I'm starting a 20 long myself. Using drift wood too, but it's still a work in process. Here's my thread. No fish or plants yet, but soon enough!

20 gal long club!

New 20 gallon long tank build!

Thanks Psuedo!

I have a little bit of Marsilea Hirsuta. Much less maintenance than Glosso. Will have to wait a while for it to propagate as well. It's hard to find Bolbitis and Anubias Petite. Been looking for those to attach to the wood and "soften" the edges and also give the sense of continuity in the wood. Right now you can definitely tell it's 4 disparate pieces.

Trigger, I was looking at your tank earlier as well. Good luck with your build.
