What filtration are you using? Im running a double sponge filter + canister (with tons of biomedia inside)

Wondering if my new TB tank I am setting up is worth to go UGF...

Do understand if you do UGF, the life span of the substrate is reduced a good amount

Regarding remineralization, I am using the little 3 gram scoop included in the package which gets the water around 5-6 dgh and 100 tds.

Tank is 70 degrees right now and I keep it around 74 in the summer.

The little pieces of orange substrate is flourite. Its hard to plant stuff in AS since its so light, so I put a layer of flourite at the bottom to help keep plants down.

Filtration consists of 3 Eheim Ecco canisters chained together along with a purigen reactor and a reactor containing nitrate removing resin, plus another canister that is totally seperate. I really don't think all those filters are necessary, but I wanted to try a low flowing filter setup that would have encourage the growth of anaerobic denitrifying bacteria.

I think there are now several people on the forum doing well with them. Nick is, Liam, Jorge Burriot, and I know Sean L from Summit Micro Farms has been doing really well in breeding them too.

Congrats on keeping the TBs. I have new baby Pandas (10) and hoping they will grow up to increase the population in my tank too.

Gotta Love those colors.

I love the fact that you have assorted colors in the same tank, and don't end up all brown! Someday I may even understand your post... LOL
