Great tank! That's a crazy diffuser! What kind is it?

It's a no-name diffuser from Hong Kong. It's kind of fun to watch the bubbles spiral up. I've had it for a couple months now, and there have been no problems.

You can find it on ebay too. They're called "Spio" diffusers.

More pictures!
Added: 3 otocinclus, 2 amano shrimp

I removed some of the blyxa cause it was looking kind of messy.

Nice tank, i like it.

just wondering, what regulator are you using on your pressurized co2?

Is that a paintball co2 tank?

I just can't tell you how much I love that hardscape.... Just perfect!

How do you like the 501?

I'm using a milwaukee regulator + paintball on/off valve + paintball co2 tank. The co2 tank has lasted me at least 3 months so far, and there's still a lot in it.

The 501 works well, and I've never had any troubles with it before. I also have a small bag of purigen in there for super-clear water.

For some reason your blyxa just doesn't look like blyxa to me. It has a spin to it. Maybe it's just your water current. Maybe it's just new to the tank and hasn't begun growing yet... .....hmmmm.....

Just keeping on keeping on....

There's actually some gross algae on the dying blyxa leaves. Maybe that's why? (It looks pretty nasty up close)

Oh, the crutch is my roommate's. Her knee hurt for a day, so she borrowed it from someone.. LOL

Dwarf puffers are really cute. Do you guys think I could squeeze in 2 of em, or just one? HMMMmm..

They're actually knockoff pipes from Hong Kong. I got them as a set, however the inflow was way too long. They sold a lot of curved glass pipes there, so I bought one and taped up an intake pipe thing to it. The inflow is slightly smaller than the outflow.. so I actually had to burn the tube a bit and shove the pipe in.

hey, can you show me or link me what a paintball on/off valve is? I want to use something like your co2 setup.

Thanks.

I am unfamiliar with how many gallons this tank is, so if I knew that I may be able to steer you in a direction with dwarf puffers. The problem is when you get 2 males that reach sexual maturity they are VERY aggressive.

How much did all of it cost and where'd you buy it?
