I was beginning to think the same thing, generally threads like this draw some interest.

With all the help of this forum, I took my constant-algae-battle tank with dying plants and produced this oh-so-healthy tank full of enjoyment!

Hi...........

Hi everyone. I am from Warsaw and just found this thread. I have had an aquarium or two, or three....for several years. I breed Bettas at one time also, still have the barracks that I am willing to sell in case anybody is interested in it.

My husband bought me a 75 gallon tank for Christmas when Petco had their $1 per gallon sale.

I am currently in the process of getting an aquascape plan from Aquariumplants.com to put into it. I have pressurized C02 but haven't used it for quite some time, but I will be starting it back up again with this tank. I will be also using PPS Pro as a dosing regimen. I am using a Rena Filstar XP2 canister filter, a Marineland 36-48" LED light, and a Aqueon 48" T5 light fixture with a 28w 6700K and a 28w Colormax light bulb. The lights are on a timer for 10-12 hours a day.

So here is a picture of my tank as it is right now.

It currently houses:

2 juvenile angel fish
1 red wag platy
6 harlequin raspbora
6 Glolight tetra
1 Dwarf African frog
2 Cardinal tetra
1 Oto
2 Ghost shrimp
1 6" Pleco, would like to find him a new home
1 6" Algae, would like to find him a new home as well.
14 juvenile Mollies, have lots more in a 20L with parents



I will post another picture once I get the aquascape plan set up.

Thanks

Myra

Not much action on this indiana sub-forumn lately...

Here is a picture of my 29 gallon:


Inhabitants are 10 rummynose tetra, 2 german blue rams, and a few ottos
I am taking suggestions for a good plant to fill in the background!





Lets see some more tanks!

Your tank looks great, nice work. I like all those crypts taking over the substrate, and that driftwood looks really cool. A few background plants I can think of that may work are hygrophila lancea, cyperus helferi, some sort of rotala, or maybe vallisneria nana (or another type of val, unless that is what is in the right corner).



All my tanks have been redone since the thread was started (I don't leave things alone), so here's some new pictures.

20 gallon


29 gallon old scape (just rescaped today, but I don't have any pictures of it yet)


10 gallon betta tank


29 gallon hex (the fish are behind the driftwood chasing some food)


Set up another emersed setup, this picture is when it was started. It is well overgrown now.



I agree, there needs to be more pictures .

They try from time to time, but once the eggs are released the kuhlis I have in there get to the eggs pretty quick. Have you had any luck with yours?

One other plant I thought of that may work (depending on you light level) is an Alternanthera reineckii variety.

Just yesterday my rams laid their third batch. The first batch didnt make it through the first night, the second batch made it 3 days. So we will see!! Im very excited seeing this happen in my tank, but I dont know how to cultivate BBS so I dont think I would be able to feed the fry. I have otos in my tank and the rams lay their eggs right in oto territory. My ram parents are still fairly young and the male shows no signs of wanting to protect the babies. I think the mom is having a tough time protecting them on her own...

I just checked out that Alternanthera reineckii. I have pretty low light, so probably a no-go. But I do want to get my hands on some cyperus helferi! That plant looks like it will fit perfectly with my tank
Thanks for the suggestions
