My 55 gallon low-tech community tank!
55 Gallon Tank
Jebo Internal Canister Filter (bought used; label was scratched off and I haven't found one like it)
36" Finnex Light
Trident Java Fern
Some kind of Sword Plant
Pygmy Chain Sword
Micranthemum 'Monte Carlo'
1 Neon Tetra (last of his school)
12 Cardinal Tetras
8 Gold Tetras
5 Celestial Pearl Danios
5 Dwarf Neon Rainbowfish
6 Pygmy Hatchets
1 Giant Danio (LFS accidentally added him to a batch of Microdevario kubotai for another tank)
4 Kuhli Loaches
3 Zebra Loaches
4 Honeycomb Catfish
2 Bolivian Rams
2 Bamboo Shrimp
2 Vampire Shrimp
5 Red Lip Nerites
1 Tiger Nerite
No ferts for this tank, just lights on from 6:00am to 8:00pm, with a four hour rest period from 10:00am to 2:00pm. It's been running for almost two years now, and all plants seem to still be thriving. Some back wall algae, but I like it that way for the otos/nerites.

Currently I am not on a GFI, I know sounds super sketchy.
I am currently trying to make my own DIY raised lightning and this is the "for now" set up, some holes drilled and nails to hold it up hahaha
But I have already dropped one end in the tank, just once. Scared the crap outta me but nothing happened thank god...
I am looking for some stylish plastic parts to raise and support the light fixture.
I love the look of a open top and raised lighting .
I have also been debating and researching about the beamswork led 400 for a 80 cm top lighting but idk if they are any good for plants.

Evtanked, please tell me you are on a GFI.
That light does not look too secure, it wouldn't take much to bump it in the tank.

|Freemananana||Vals need more like low-medium light than low light. They grow like crazy in some tanks and die in others. My suggestion would be slightly higher light than anticipated. I had bad luck with mine, so I can't really say for certain.|

|Freemananana||What is low tech? Drawing the limits at CO2? I have this idea that low tech is basically water changes and feeding fish.|
