Ikebana Inspired Tank -20 long-
This is my first attempt at a planted tank and it's proving to be very fun! I got this Blue Jack Dempsey when he was 1/2 inch long. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for checking this out, cheers!
I most recently changed this tank to reflect the Ikebana style of arranging plants. Thanks for checking this out!
*Update November '11*
Eheim 2213 (Best money I've ever spent)
Aquaclear 30(Filled with polyester filter floss)
Aquaclear 101 powerhead (80gph)
Azoo drop checker
6 watt UV sterilizer
Flourite Black Sand
Diy 3 24" T8 Bulbs
Fertilizers every other day: 1/4 tsp Spectracide Stump Remover (Potassium Nitrate), 30 drops of Fleet Enema (Potassium Phosphate), 1/8 tsp Morton Salt Substitute (Potassium), 4ml Flourish (micro's)
Anubias Barteri petite
Anubias Barteri nana
Hygrophyla corymbosa "stricta"
I had a glass nano diffuser...it lasted a good 2 weeks before I broke it :mad:
Added some Hornwort I pulled from a pond (did the h202 sterilization dip) and boiled some driftwood
You may be new but doing a great job. Just keep on trucking.
I just got a 40 gallon breeder going wish I went with a 75. Same depth but wider and Jack will like it more.
Changed the lighting. Now running 2-6500k & 1-3100k. Also added 2 black skirt tetras. Hopefully they'll bring out my shy blue jack more often.
Maybe it's just me, but that is a HUGE snail!
He is indeed. But somehow, he manages to squeeze his way into my aquaclear filter box. I'll be watching my tank when oddly enough,a snail comes floating by, ejected from the overflow. GERONIMO!!!
Haha nice tank and beautiful fish! Sick taste in music =D Sublime allz dayz
One thing I love about this hobby is there's always room to fiddle around with stuff. I changed my lighting AGAIN, then decided to mess around with microsoft paint and draw up some graphs.
Now I'm using the Zoomed UltraSun(6500K)+Zoomed FloraSun(5000k)+GE Aquarays (9325k). Here's a couple spectrum graphs I overlapped
Flora Sun + GE Aquarays
Ultra Sun + GE Aquarays
UltraSun(6500K)+Zoomed FloraSun(5000k)+GE Aquarays (9325k)
Here's the spectrum for photosynthesis
This is the disaster .jpeg with everything overlapping each other. lol
I wanted to add some color to the tank so I got some Alternanthera reineckii. I hope I can keep it red! Also got some hairgrass. Let's see how it grows in.
Jack Daniel's is goooooood :proud:
Nice Tank fish seem happy!!
Things are coming together
Cleared out some space and planted some needle leaf ludwigia...they're sooo tiny
wow nice tank. i miss my EBJD. :(
That dempsey is getting big, has he started digging yet?
They can be bad for that once they start to mature. Of course, that is more of a breeding behavior and sense he doesn't have any potential mates in there it might not be a problem for some time now.
