You can't go wrong with lake erie smallies or the walleye and perch for that matter. I live in Port clinton aka walleye capital of the world lol but all the fish do well here... that is until the jumping carp takes over...
Hopefully you fish pleasant hill lake over by mohican, smallies, largemouth, saugeye and I think some musky even.
A native brook trout tank would be awesome man. My dream tank is a huge darter/dace/minnow river tank.
For those of you who haven't had the pleasure of catching some nice lake smallies:

You should try leopard jungle val. I have some now, and it's pretty sweet looking. I'm waiting for it to really get going but so far it's been chilling in a corner throwing runners places.
Never got lace seeds, but I do have two I'm growing out ATM so we will see what becomes if them. My ulvaces flowers like crazy though, I lee trimming and it keeps trying.

Kwheeler that stump tank is wicked! I want to do a trout tank like that with brookies and big ol stumps eventually. Trout are from michigan. I fish a ton in central ohio though, mainly chasing smallmouth and saugeye. I saw you fish erie in your thread, you guys are spoiled up there! I always make it up for some smallies, perch/eyes, and steelies. Buddies have been catching hawg eyes off the piers up there.
Thanks Hydbrid herp. Not much in the way of fish right now; few otos, two small bristlenose, SAE, MTS, two assassin snails, undetermined amount of tiger shrimp, five amanos, and two bamboo shrimp. Tons of plants though!
-Anubias (barteri- normal type?, nana, petite, coffefolia, broad leaf)
-Swords (red rubin, pygmy chain sword)
-Crypts (nurii- 2 types, florida sunset, bronze, parva)
-Java fern windelov
-Other unknown aponotegon
-Jungle val (about to remove the last bit though)
-Little bit of duckweed i think
That should be it! Guess it was good to get a stocking list down. I want to get some crypt affinis and rosanervig. Possibly some downoi too. Don't have much space now though, just getting into a 3 gal. i have though.
Lace flower is looking good, will have to get a pic here later. Anyone ever gotten seeds from one???

|HybridHerp||Dude, I want your lace and your fern, I want that look so badly :P What's the stock of fish and things?|

Everyone who has a 55 wishes it was wider, check my sig nice tank man, especially with no co2.
I have to ask where did you catch that trout?
|11-28-2013 11:07 PM|
|TheRiverRat||Thanks that means a lot!!! I can be a tough width and have often wished it was a bit wider. I plan on getting a custom built rimless to fit the stand I built with my dad... whenever I fall into some major loot!|

Ive never been a fan of the 55g with the small 12" width, but you make it work with the black background and setup.
The only 55g that ive liked

Have switched some stuff around in the tank! Moved the sunset crypts to the right side of the "beach" and added some bronze crypts on the left. Added some new anubias on the right that should just take ohhh a few years to fill in how I want them lol. Moved some fisseden covered java rocks by some of my crypt nurii too.
Threw in some tiger shrimp but I was not home when they arrived some my mom dealt with them, the two I have seen look amazing. When I got them though I also got the anubias which had soil on the roots and I told my mom just to throw those in too. Not sure if that would affect/kill shrimp or the rest got sucked into the filter (going to clean it tomorrow).
My madagascar lace is also flowering for the first time ever too!! Pretty purple flower on a wicked long stem. Nurii (compact one) has shot out another spathe.
Just though this java lace leaf sprouting a ton of plantlets was cool!

Thanks for sharing the photo of your spathe.
I've been trying to get mine to flower for a year using Aquasoil. So it's highly frustrating to see someone using a different substrate with such success - ha!
|09-24-2013 06:36 AM|
|TheRiverRat||Here is a pic of my nurii I have up front. Spathe just extended in the past couple of days while I was gone.|

The plants on the driftwood and anubias barteri, nana, and petite and mostly java fern windelov. Also a small bucephalandra is snuck in there.
And yep just root tabs. No co2 been thinkin about it but really digging how low maintinence the tank is.
|09-17-2013 12:21 AM|
|tattooedfool83||Just root tabs? Any co2?|
|09-16-2013 11:55 PM|
|j03yYunG||nice. its really coming together now. what kind of plants are on he driftwood to the left?|
|09-16-2013 11:50 PM|
|TheRiverRat||Thanks! The jungle is what I am going for. The flat lying nurii upfront is about to flower too which I am pretty excited about.|
|09-16-2013 11:43 PM|
|John Simpson||this is a really cool style very jungle feel, nice|
