I think the Petco $1/gallon sale is going on now, so ill grab a 20 long that isn't broken. I have a slight problem though. I have the 29g still setup (not looking hot at all, too embarrassed to show pics) and I want to keep the German Blue Ram that is in it, I don't really want to keep the angelfish or the single remaining hatchetfish. But for the new scape I want to use Aquasoil, so i will have to wait a while before I can add fish..so IDK what to do. Because I want to keep the seeded filter media, but I don't necessarily want/have time to keep both tanks for that amount of time. And I also kind of want to keep the GBR, but i would be okay if I just got rid of it and bought new GBRs once the tank is setup..So I'm not quite sure what I'll do, haha!

so im downsizing this tank to a 20 long. it actually wont be similar at all, haha! the only thing that will be the same are the filters and the fish (well only some, ill need to re home the angel)
im going to do a java fern jungle type scape with manzanita. im also going to use aquasoil for the plants. it will be low light still.
here is the hardscape idea

however, i did the hardscape (it was so hard to work with this wood!) in an old 20 long thats scratched and chipped. so ill have to transfer it over to a new tank soon. but im waiting for the petco 1$ per gallon sale.
im considering just taking the larger group of wood ( as seen below) and moving it closer to the center, and taking the smaller group of wood out.

the plants will be needle leaf java fern, blyxa japonica, crypts, anubias, fissidens, taiwan or similar moss, and maybe some hydrocotyl sibthorpioides.
the front will be cosmetic sand and the planted areas will be aquasoil

I just ordered an Fluval 306 for my 55g African Cichlid tank. I'm really excited for it. I've never had a canister before.
|09-05-2012 12:38 AM|
i like to too, but there is not room around the tank for a canister filter, so i had to just go with HOBs. the water movement sucks and all kinds of fish crap and debris end u in the one corner. its very annoying!
you should come and visit the two of us and get some fish!!!
you all should checkout my new jounral! its my best scape yet! fish are getting added tomorrow
|09-04-2012 10:26 PM|
I generally over filter my tanks...at least for my cichlids.
I remember you saying before that it was not an actual 'import' that Rachael does. It's all in the thought process right now though.
She has awesome stock for smaller fish. If I do end up taking this the next step then I'll definitely be looking her up.

I'm glad the angel is doing well. If I end up doing this I'll definitely be talking to Rachael to see what she has in stock and if she can get anything like what you had again.

The current Stocklist is 1 angel, 1 German blue ram, and 2 hatchets. I haven't had money to restock it fully yet.
The angel is doing great. Idk what you think of as a community. I'd feel comfortable with a pair of angels and a school of Tetras. Along with otos.

What's the current stock list? I'm contemplating upgrading my 10g to a 29g (and getting rid of my nano tanks), this wouldn't happen for a couple of months.
If I did this I'd love to get angels and do an Amazon biotope. How is the remaining angel doing?
Do you think a pair of angels can do well in a 29g community?
Idk if you follow my 10g thread but I wrote a nice essay on it about my thoughts. Typing thoughts is a very stress relieving process.

nothing to say really. same as the previous update.
i did get some manzanita for a different project that i didnt end up using. so ill soak it and throw it in i guess. see what i can do

|AquaStudent||Any updates Bob?|

not much to say really. i added a german blue ram. she loves it. there are only 2 hatchets left, seems like they have been jumping. the otos all mysteriously dissapeared as well.
i decided to actually start taking care of the tank again. so i clean the whole thing up. rescaped a bit (i like the original scape bettera, but needed a change) and thats about it. nothing to look at really
