Re: Decided!!! Woo

Picked up a tank today!!

And it's awesome! Way better than I was expecting. Definitely going to go with two Evolve 8s!!

Throwing around the idea of skipping the high tech and just doing two shrimp/low tech tanks.

Coming to the realization that being in nursing school and preggers might not be conducive to a high maintenance tank.

I promise to post pictures of an empty tank tonight haha!

And the LEDs look plenty bright to grow simple stems and low light plants.

Have you considered Mr. Aqua? They have cube and long 7.5 rimless that look pretty slick... And if you top it with a Finnex Ray 2 you can grow pretty much anything. I know it's more expensive because it's not a kit, but I think it'll be more interesting in the long run, like more variety. But the Evolve 8 is a nice choice too.

Good Luck

How I feel about non-planted aquariums.

Very nice!!!

Ludwigia red.

What kind of dog is that?

Is that the other tank you have to break down eventually?

I'm really impressed with that L. Red, it has stayed red through complete neglect and very little light. Granted the leaves close to the base are greenish.


He's my dumpster dog :] Literally haha, him and 3 of his litter mates were pulled out of a dumpster in Puerto Rico so he could be anything. We are thinking Chihuahua and some terrier cross. He's about 15lbs. His name is Goober. It just kind of stuck haha. Honestly the best dog I've ever had. He will not bark, at all. I will post some pictures of him in a bit. He's really goofy looking, I know my breeds of dogs as I showed Rat Terriers for a little and I honestly have no idea what he is. His tail is ridiculously long and I've never seen a breed with his coloring. Granted he is a conformational nightmare, crooked teeth and all.


And yes that is or was the tank :[ It is just about empty now, all except for a handful of fish that are waiting for my tank to cycle and the tetras that are looking for a new home. Oh and some random plants that I plan to use in the next tank.

The Trio of Evolve 8s. *Pictures*

What a cute puppy! I'm wanting a Nano tank bad and I was considering that tank. I can't make up my mind, but I'm starting to really lean towards a Mr Aqua. I've got 5 tanks going now and I'm getting embarrassed of them being all over the house so I want to move two into a shelf in the guest bedroom and then have the nice one in the bedroom.

That tank really tied the room together

Haha he is very very lucky he's so darn cute! Within the first 72 hours at home he ate my Bose headphones >.>

I actually plan on having three of these Evolve 8s right next to each other on top of the stand that I have now.

Update time:
Added some cholla
NL moss
More flame moss
Xmas moss
Riccia

And what is left of my PFRs. Tank was cycled using media and substrate from a cycled tank

Also picked up the second 8 gallon but am going to be patient, which is killing me, I am going to wait until I find the right driftwood for it. I am looking for twig/branchy so that it can kind of "erupt" out of one of the corners.


Not all the plants in the shrimp tank are staying.

Not sure what type of crypt this is

Looking good!

No, those are some crypt I got a while ago when I was just starting out. I think they are wendtii brown or something.

It's actually a sandwich of 2inx2in ss mesh with Riccia in between in, I am seeing if it will grow out of the mesh. It would just make it that much easier to trim haha

I have one more piece of "naked" cholla and I am kind of tempted to attach some fissidens to it. Give my shrimp some more stuff to pick through.

That moss is not growing fast enough! haha
