I'm in the process of setting up a 38 Gallon Long tank as we speak. No water in it yet, waiting on the lights and the CO2 regulator before getting the party started.

I also have a 20 Gallon T that I've just recently put some plants in, nothing major just a few things I managed to find at PetSmart which isn't great and a DIY CO2 set up. I'll post some pics later.

Here's my tanks, like I said nothing much to look at but i've been enjoying it and have been picking up a lot of things on these forums.

This one is my 29 Gallon Tall. I've had it for a bit over a year now. It's pretty much the kit from Petsmart. I do have 2 plants in it that are real. Having an issue with Brown Diatoms because I wasn't doing water changes like I should. My fish are doing well though and I've started regular water changes now and I hope to take out the fake plants and add a few other low light plants.

My second tank. I got it on Craigslist a few months back for 20 bucks with the stand and a 10 gallon that I haven't done anything with. This is my experiment tank. It has two 8" clamp lights with 13W CFL 6500k bulbs and DIY CO2. I just got this up and going last week. The plants are from Petsmart and I spent a lot of time googling the plant names to make sure they were actually aquatic plants and not the semi aquatic they sometimes sell. Only 1 fish in this one, he wasn't getting along with his tank mates.

This is my work in progress. It's a 38 Gallon Long I picked up last month on Craigslist for 30 bucks. The light is a Finnex Ray 2. I have a CO2 regulator on the way and an Hydor inline heater. I picked up a Fluval 305 filter on the SnS forum here for relatively cheap along with the driftwood. The substrate is Safe T Sorb. I'm on a tight budget so it's taking a bit to get this one set up.


Sorry for the poor images. I'm not very photo inclined and used my cell phone.

Welcome! Your tanks look good, they will only get better.

stevenjohn21 03-17-2013 10:47 PM

Nice tanks ! Do you make those 3-D backgrounds yourself ?

sdaugherty 03-17-2013 11:51 PM

Thanks for the comments.

I did not make the backgrounds, they came from a company called Universal Rocks. I really like them in my other tanks.
