Zefrik Update pics after move!

I was able to move the entire tank with a 1/4 of the water still in the tank. So basically the tank looks the same here at my new place! No replanting required just filled it back up and turned it on.

Thanks! I did try to have a carpet one other time in a tank with a few AGA T8 light strips over the tank, diy co2, playsand, and no ferts. As you can imagine it did not do to well.

This HC has been through a lot. It has been attacked by algae and has survived green water and a bacterial bloom. During which I stopped dosing being worried it would help fuel the GW and BB all to figure out I was just starving my plants. But they have come back.

Zefrik Pictures! I borrowed my brothers phone to take these, so they are not the best. Sorry it has been so long!

Zefrik New update. I have been having algae issues. I started a thread about it earlier. I have also been losing my rummy-nose tetras one by one over the past few weeks. I started of with 6 and one died while he was being acclimated. And then 2 died off for some unknown reason. I am now missing to be I suspect they are also dead. I have also lost a couple neon tetras. I still have all of my original black neon tetras though. I will try to get a picture up of the tank before I move at the end of this month. Then I will be re-setting up the tank!

Zefrik I think the cloudiness is a bacterial bloom.

Zefrik My water is super cloudy right now I am not sure why! it is making me very frustrated! My camera is not working now either! Sorry

Zefrik Again it has been a while but I will get some pictures up soon. I added another Magnum H.O.T. for better circulation and co2 diffusion. I am running one of them without any kind of filter in it and I put my glass diffuser underneath the filter intake. I have lost 2 neon tetras, and I think it was because they where picking on each other. But everything is balanced now. I have started to pick up some of the Aqua Vitro line of plant products. I am able to get them for $6.50 a piece so it works for me. I also ordered some red cherry shrimp on [Ebay Link Removed] I am not quite sure when they will ship but I should be getting a dozen. I am hoping my tank is planted dense enough that the shrimp will be okay and maybe reproduce. I have 4 ghost shrimp and my black neons have not even as much as glanced there way. I also keep running out of co2 quicker than I think I should be, so I have taken the whole system apart a few times to see if anything was loose and I also used teflon tape on some of the connections. Hopefully I have fixed it.

I would probably not de-rim a tank of that size. I think there is a thread here about somebody removing the rim of a 75 gallon and it was fine. If you did I would think about bracing it with glass. Even then I don't know how well it will hold up.

Nice work.
Thanks!

I am really liking the layout with all the rocks too. I ended up making the 29 rimless because the rim was kind of lopsided or warped but it ended up looking awesome.
