Tank Breakdown

Moving sucks. Moving with tanks well that is more than I am going to tackle at this point.

There are a couple of tanks I kind of like and would rather sell together locally than break it down for the parts.

I will update this with better photos/another tank later but for now:



10 gallon with stand and lid. Dirt/Peat/Laterite Substrate capped with playsand.

Two filters one AC30, one Marineland s10

Rocks ( in front of the A. Reineckii there is a biggish rock, under the downoi there are separate rock piles that were covered when the downoi grew)

Co2 diffuser

I add diy co2/excel and dose low light EI ferts (1/3 normal dose)


Flora:

At least 40 crowns/sideshoots of Pogestemon Helferi(Downoi)
[URL=http://s1292.photobucket.com/user/jkpedrita/media/For%20sale/Tank-1_zpsee99ef1c.jpg.html]

At least 30 nodes of Lobelia Cardenalis (Dwarf Variety)



At least 30 stems of A. Reineckii (Scarlet Temple)

At least 20 Echinodorus Angustifolia (Vesuvius Sword)

15-20 nodes Marsilea Minuta (thought I'd sold it previously but found some hiding under the downoi.

Lot and lots of R. Rotundifolia

3-4 stems of R. Indica

Oh and see that small shoot on the bottom left, I think that is some lindernia rotundifoilia varigated. I had planted some months ago and it died, somehow it has decided to come back to life


The plants are in great shape except the A. Reinecki has some green spot algae on them due to crowding and I was away for a couple of days and missed dosing.

The light was a gift so I am keeping it. I would prefer to sell everything together.

Make me a reasonable offer and it is yours.

I am also selling the tank that is in my signature. I haven't updated in a while, so I will post better pictures descriptions of the flora/fauna later.

I wish I would have seen this a week ago! I just bought all the gear for a new 10G

Where are you moving? Staying in STL or moving away?

Hi cjstl. Moving away. I am heading out to DC. I will post a 20 gallon, a ten gallon riparium, and a 29 gallon jungle tank too if you are interested in those sizes. And maybe the ten and five gallon shrimp tanks depending on how much space space I'll have in my new apartment.

Make sure we get to see final pictures. You will want them anyway; you should always get to see the beauty you created.

glad to hear it. I hope I can get my tank to look half as good as yours do/did. Nice to know they went to good homes.
