I just started this tank around 11-14-12. It is coming along pretty good.
Here is the equipment list:
55g with painted black background
2 canister filters, 1 Fluval 306 and 1 QPOND 265gph 3 stage canister filter
1 CFL light, 2x 96w 50/50 blulbs 10k/420nm
1 Marineland 150w heater
1 Fluval 100w heater
4 Pearl Gourami
10 Olive Nerite Snails
Cryptocoryne Blassii Melon
Red Melon Sword
EI dosing regime
50-75% WC weekly
Pretty basic and straight forward setup.
Now for the good stuff! Some Pictures!
