90 community low tech
Tank has been up for 3 months. Had another thread but decided to move it here.
Here it is before everything started growing:
-2 dual Diamond plate T8 shop lights
-Eheim 2215 canister filter
-2 Eheim Ecco 2236 canister filters
-2 Hydor inline heaters
Mineralized top soil capped with white pool filter sand
-9 Cherry barbs
-12 Neon Tetras
-2 Bristlenose plecos
-Anubias (nana, petite, golden)
-Jungle val + leopard val
-Hygro (stricta maybe)
Since the last update you can see a lot of stuff has grown. The jungle val has gone crazy and I have let a few of the largest plants go without trimming them. The largest leaves are at least 1.25"x4'.
The swords are not doing too great and the SAEs ate all my fissidens and tawain moss :icon_cry:
My BN plecos bred multiple times so I have a babies everywhere.
Nice tank. Love the Cherry Barbs with all the green behind them.
Nice though it looks a bit crowded because of the plants.

I always like the mixed natural look.
Being dirted takes it over the top. :smile:
just a thought going forward, when the growth gets really tall in my tanks and I allow it to create a canopy that shadows lower plants things tend to get thin down low before I realize it.
Looks great. keep up the good work.
finally made a video
I love the jungle look, where everything goes crazy just like how it would in the wild. Great looking tank.
looking good - and real lush :)
Great Job! It's beautiful
Im "digging" it haha; dig dirt ;)
Thanks for all the compliments! I will upload another video soon. I have changed a lot around and just need to give it some time to adjust and grow out again.
I have added a Bolivian ram and a kribensis then I have a honey gourami in quarantine. I plan on getting another school of smaller fish as well. Most likely rummy-nose tetras and/or leopard danios.
Well you earned them! Can I get some advice on you tank/ideas... how tall roughly is your tank?
I have not been able to update this in a long time with school keeping me busy and a huge blue green algae bloom. The tank is now recuperating so hopefully it will be looking good again soon. I tried to get a view from inside the tank with a gopro action camera but it did not download properly on YouTube so sorry for the horrible quality.
Hopefully I can get some descent pics soon.
Cute video, love when the fish check out the camera :)
