Danny's 3 Gallon Long Tank
 
So I had this Deep Blue 3 Gallon Long tank for some time now. I just had a huge planaria infestation and couldnt get rid of them with 3 high dosage of safeguard so I decided to take all of my shrimps out and soak my tank and my plants in 1 huge dosage of safeguard. Planaria is now gone, and I have rinsed my plants and sand multiple times.

Tank: Deep Blue 3 Gallon Long 18x6x7
Lighting: Beamswork 36-40" 129 Led Fixture
Filtration: 1 Small Sponge Filter

I'm not sure if this counts as extra filtration but I have 2 Small, 2 Medium, and 1 Large Breeder Box all hanging from all the sides except the front of the tank. In each breeder box I have a 1inch thick piece of filtration sponge on of the breeder box, topped by gravel and then plants. This is in all of the breeder boxes.

I'm using a marina whisper air pump with dual outlets for 60 gallon. Surprisingly I adjusted the valves that came with the breeder boxes and i found the right level of air going through each breeder box so that there is little to no noise that comes from the bubbles.

Substrate: Just regular black sand from petco. Its only a Neo/Moss tank anyway.

Plants:

Wild Willow Moss
Rose Moss
Fissiden and Mini Fissiden
Green Blanket Moss
Flame Moss
Pearl Moss
Weeping Moss
Singapore Moss
Marimo Ball
Dwarf Water Lettuce
Duckweed

Animals:
Painted Fire Red (Medium Breeder Box Front)
Blue Velvets (Medium Breeder Box Back)
Blue Chocolates (Main Tank)
Blue Ramshorn (Large Breeder Box)

Before you guys start saying anything, the PFR and BV are not going to be housed there permenantly. I'm currently building a custom tank for them to go in. (Housed Seperately).

I have 2 plants that came when I purchased either moss or shrimps and they are unknown to me and I have no idea what they are called. Can anyone ID these?

Dayumdanny 11-08-2012 09:26 PM

Ever since I ripped apart my tank, I've cleaned everything. Including my cholla wood multiple times. But lately it keeps growing this fungus. I'm not sure what it is or what is causing it to grow. Any idea what this is?

I think those are just fungus. It usually shows up when wood is newly put under water. Btw what is the plant on the left corner? Looks like just a flat green square.

Correct. Almost all wood once submerged in water will have that. Not harmful just unpleasant to look at. Amano and Nerites are perfect in these situations ;)

Sweet tank, where are you located in CT?

GMYukonon24s 11-09-2012 05:23 PM

Nice setup! I like all the different compartments. I like the shrimp too

It's called green carpet moss. I had some for sale but it's all sold out if you want some in the future let me know.

Over time does it go away?

Thanks, I'm actually trying to see if shrimps would breed in those small compartments. I know that people have done breeding in the large breeder box. But I'm experimenting with with the smaller box. I have PFR in the front medium box and blue velvets in the medium box in the back. It's been 2 weeks. No berried females yet. But all the females are saddled. If anything I can just use the boxes as moss grow out tanks.

oooooooo that moss is really interesting, I actually think ive got some of that from the wild by accident!
Do you have a closer pic of the fronds? I might just happen to have JUGS of that stuff growing in my bathroom in containers, sense i collect moss in general! And yeah the fungus goes away eventually.. heh snails will take care of it and some fish even nibble on it. totally harmless (just not to the eye :P )

very cool!
