33 gallons from A to Z
 
Hi everyone,

Since I did a journal for my 10 g riparium I thought I would start this journal on my 33g. I'm gonna post all the pictures from my humble beginnings up to now without too much details.

I want more info on the lights, ferts, and substrate. For I wish my plants grew as well as your's do.

Vin 08-02-2013 03:55 PM

Really? I figure my plants don't grow very well :) Its the darkness of the picture it hides all the defects.

This is for the current set up only:
Lighting: Got a 30 inch Coralife ramp with two 18 Watts T5 bulbs.
Ferts: I dose PPS-Pro daily 1.5 X the recommended dose. Got some root tabs in the crypts also. Been dosing recommended dose of Excel daily since I took out the rotting valisneria (1 month I guess ?)
Substrate: Flourite black.

I do a 25% water change even though I probly don't have to.

Looks great to me. I like the driftwood. Very dramatic.

Now both my T5 bulbs blew out and the product is discontinued... so I ordered a crazy LED ramp.... Not sure where this will bring the tank in the future :) We shall see...

Hi everyone !

PHOTO UPDATE:

First trim since this tank got some a new Current + Pro SAtelite !

http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i1...psowmprvai.jpg

Up to now the effects of the new ramp are the following:

CRAZY frogbit growth like triples in mass and each individuals are getting bigger. I gave a big freezer ziplock bag full of it. The roots are also getting way longer.

Polysperma running wild.

THe new leaves on the sword plant seem to be bigger, longer and greener.

Got this cool new moss on my driftwood it looks just like green grass...its green hair algae... but its looking real good :) I seriously thought I would have a way bigger algae bloom with my change of lights. Guess not !!! yay.

Crypts are just chilling, bring crypts.

I really have a brown dust problem. I'm wondering if maybe its a lack of flow or filtration or something. To be continued....

Overall very happy with this new LED ramp :) And the best par is.. NO MORE BROKEN TUBES THAT I DON'T NOTICE FOR A WEEK! Wooooohohoooooooo..
