Hi everyone. I've been lurking for a few months, posted a few times and realized I have not introduced myself. Name is Zach, username is beginragnarok - Ragnarok being the end-all restart-all (kind of) war in Norse mythology between the gods and Giants and every type of monster those drunkard Vikings could think of.
I purchased my first aquarium mid-December an Aqeueon 26 G bowfront. I very quickly noticed the equiptment that came with it was more designed for a 10-15G. So I got myself a Fluval 206 filter and a 100 W Fluval M series heater. I had an E-series...not happy with it long story short a refund is in the works. A ZooMed dual T5 HO Recently I added a Koralia Nano 460 powerhead. The substrate is red Flourite capped with light colored river rock. The plants in this tank are Water Sprite, Hygrophila sp. "Japan", Sunset Hygrophila, Bacopa Salzamannii, Hygrophila Pinnatifida, Flame moss, Narrow Leaf Anacharis, Baby Tears, Red Melon Sword(which may
actually be pinwheel Sword, not pictured
). Also four Paleatus Corydoras, Four male Red Dragon Guppies, a mess of RCS, a few different types of Nerites and MTS. Love my cories so much, they freakin' fart after digesting their atmospheric gasses, too funny.
I wish this was a 72 G Bowfront...
My 10G has gone though many chages scince I got it about two months ago it has the whisper 20 filter from the 26g purchase, 100 W all-glass heater and a Koralia nano 240 powerhead and 2 X 14 W 5K "daylight" cfl s in the stock hood for lighting. A screw up with Osmocote+ caps later
... after completly replacing the Flourite it was back in business. I have three Otocinclus cats in it along with RCS. I like RCS they are cool to watch.The plants I have in it are Water Violet (just got it) Subwassertang, Riccia Fluitans, Frogbit, Glossostigma and some stems from the 26G. It is coming along but I will be doing a bit of scaping this weekend with some more lava rock I got today from the local landscape suplier. A few foothills will be added with tabletops for plants to grow from. Yeah so thats more or less my set up right now. I am doing DIY CO2 it is a bit of a PITA, will be getting a pressurized set up soon.
