Last push to win the RAOK. New pics updated 8/21. Page 6

Still trying to build interest in the thread. I ended up taking the GIANT ball of Baby Tears and securing it to the rock below it. Also, I removed all the water wisteria from the left side as this has become something of a nuisance.

So this is my thread to try and win this insane RAOK. Please help me generate some interest by posting compliments, encouragement, etc.

Here is my 75 gallon tank!

Later tonight I will post pictures of the rest of my tanks to keep the excitement up!

Well the mods said I can still post since my entry was made at 500 posts so that's cool. The sticker says, "tampering with my fish tank will result in an ass whooping you'll never forget."

Beautiful tank! How are you running it? What plant species are you keeping there?

Nice rocks... good luck with Bettatail's crazy ROAK!

Tank is a 75 gallon with gravel substrate and a layer of play sand on top and plants being: Anubias, Cabomba Furcata, Cabomba, Bacopa, Jungle Val, Aponogeton Ulvaceus, Hygro Carymbosa, Hygro Difformis, Ludwigia, and Baby Tears.

Fish stock is 5 Roseline Sharks, cory cats, ottos, Turquoise and Parkinson Rainbows, Gold Gourami, Electric Blue and Comet Rams, SAE, and BN plecs.

I use a variation of EI dosing based upon my own plant growth results.

This is where I want to incorporate this awesome RAOK. It is a breeding rack with a 20 high on top, 20L in the middle, and two 10s on the bottom. The top has Tiger Barbs (only managed one successful breed thus far), the middle has a pair of GBRs (check out my thread on that one), the bottom left has BN plecs that I have raised SOOOO many out of, and the bottom right has Elegant Cories that I have yet to start trying to breed, but plan to shortly.

I would like to convert all these tanks into injected planted ones with this RAOK. I only need a multi-way CO2 splitter and I'll be in awesome shape. Hopefully this comes through and I can bring this operation to total success!
