DK’S 125, 40B1 and 40B2
I have three tanks, well maybe four if you count the quarantine tank. I have two 40 breeders and one 125G tank. All of my tanks have pressurized co2, mineralized soil and are hooked up to automatic water changer. I also dose tanks with fertilizers based on my own dosing regime.
I have been keeping this journal alive on NJAGC but I figured if I post it here I will get more exposure and maybe different ideas from the fine folks here on this forum.
So without further ado here they are:
Tank went down hill from here. Fish were breeding like crazy I had about 150+ electric yellows and firefish cichlids. My young cichlids reached adulthood fairly quickly causing more and more damage the bigger they got. With so many aggressive fish around plants couldn’t take the beating any longer. Soon after they fell to the BBA outbreak and fish developed some kind fungal infection which caused massive losses.

I'm using Wave Point T5 HO 4X39W and it stays on for 7hrs/day. I bought it used here on tpt. The original blue bulbs were replaced with plant friendly ones but i don't know the exact kelvin rating.
I bought them from a stone yard for 10c per pound. I think I paid 20$ total.
They called them moss rocks but I think its just a limestone.
I'm not too crazy about this layout.
This one is in desperate need of trimming.
I need to get rid of the chian swords on the left and replant the reds.
125G tank May 3rd 2012.
Some pics of my fish.
Thanks for looking.
Fantastic looking tanks. Really like the way the rocks look on the sand substrate.
Them are some beautiful fish. Also great looking timeline of your tank.
Thanks guys I guess my tank is turning around for the better. :)
Tanks look great, love the dwarf cichlids and Blue Tetras in the big tank.
40B1 May 29 2012 update.
TWIG CATFISH eating dead algae
I run out of ferts and my ludwigia glandulosa is showing signs of deficiencies. I need to make a new batch of ferts to hopefully combat the twisting and curling of new leaves.
Here is something weird. Instead of straight leaves staurogyne repens is growing "branchy" leaves, kind of like Java Fern Trident. I dont know if its a virus or some kind of mutation or maybe my light level is too high or maybe I have totally different plant.
Anyway thanks for looking.
Tanks look great ! Whats the plants attached to the wood on 12092010
that makes them look "tree like" ?
