it will consist of MGOC capped with pool filter sand, pressurized co2, t5HO (the fixture is around 400 watts dont know if ill keep both banks on). dual canisters, and a water pump that i forgot the gph.

I really like those 2 pieces on the left side. But don't care much for the one on the right. Good start though :)

i like the two on the left also. the only reason i have the one on the right is because its covering up the white pvc in/outputs for my water pump. its the only one i have thats tall enough. if i take that one out them i left with 2. i dont like even #'s.


suggestions?

nonconductive 02-20-2010 04:24 PM

i think im gunna take it out and just zip tie some long narrow ones ever the pvc.

I think the one on the right looks sweet. Great place to grow some fern.

Delslo 02-20-2010 06:50 PM

this sword is over 2 ft tall and spreads out 2 feet wide. i was debating whether i wanted to use it just because its so huge. i trimmed off a couple dozen leaves. i wanted to pitch it but felt bad because its the first plant i ever bought (i have 2 this large) a couple years ago. its been sitting ina dark cold bucket for a couple days.

this tank previously housed discus, they are currently in a holding tank. due to a stupid mistake i lost my largest one i've had for years. contempleting trying to trade them in for store credit. i have an 18 month old child and they are just too much work right now.
