Nice tank!

Very nice! I love how the plants pop. What all do you have in there? What lighting are you using?

AMKZ 11-04-2012 02:11 AM

Iv got some crypts, jungle val, wisteria, anubia nana, and a few plants iv collected in the wild. For lights im running 2 26W cfls on a DIY fixture raised up about 3 in. from the surface.
Fauna are various wild caught shrimp, mollys, plattys, and swords, iv also got 2 elgea eaters and a rubber nose pleco :)

Looking good, I'm a huge fan of Jungle Vals!!!! I love how tall they can get, if you never trim they'll just keep on growing lol.

Can you give us a breakdown of the setup, like what kind of substrate, lighting, etc....

AMKZ 11-04-2012 03:02 AM

Gravel and sand capped with Eco-complete, Iv been running the hang off filter that the tank and with. Iv never tested the water but I run water changes 1 time a week about 25%. I'm dosing leaf zone from API and the API c02 booster. I'm running an 8 hour photo period. I made a DIY c02 today so we will see how that goes... I'd love to get some cherry shrimp but I don't know much about them

I didn't even notice the rocks in there. I was to busy starring at the plants and fish.

i got them at home depot for a dart frog set up i had years ago and i found them in the yard so i washed them and put them in. the shrimp enjoy the cover and they have been breeding in it:)

you should be careful with DIY CO2, I will connect to 2nd bottle and fill water in there, because it will release toxic gas in 2 weeks

Very nice setup.

AMKZ 12-17-2012 04:25 PM

I clean/refill the c02 after 5 or 6 days always lol Im paranoid it will run out while im at work :/

Thank you :)

Awesome! I just wish the heater was hidden, otherwise it's great! I'm jealous.
Is this the 14g Aqueon tank? I really want to get that!
