Arrow 12G Club: Got a 12 GalloN RimlesS or wanna get 1? PoSt/SeE HeRe!


Featured is J&H's 12G Long

12 Gallon Long Rimless Club
(Mr. Aqua or GLA)

Hi! As I have discussed with a few fellow members with 12 gallon long tanks, it would be nice to have a thread dedicated to just 12 gallon long tanks. Its basically a thread dedicated to our small 12G long community in hopes of keeping it always exciting and drawing new interests everyday. This thread is open for ideas, questions, suggestions, etc. as a whole. Whether you already have a 12G long, looking for ideas how to design it, or simply thinking to get one, I want this thread and its members to help you in whichever way possible

Goals:
* Have your very own community focusing on 12G longs.
* Learn, inspire, share & support (Remember it as L.I.S.S).
* Give RAOK(s) from your very own 12G tank(s) for newcomers or to those in need when you have extra.
* Have fun! This is what it is all about

Your Support Needed!: Link to our club by adding the pre-setup link below to your signature box. Just copy & paste to your signature box.

Those tanks are amazing. I'm in love with the long style. Right now I'm emailing around to see if I can buy it from anywhere in Canada (and not pay $150 for shipping from green leaf aquariums).

What do you think is the best LED light for a tank like this? It seems like it's a bit of a tricky spot in that it's long so that lights that cover the whole length are going to be powerful, but since it's so shallow they might be too much. I see some people here are using multiple clip on lights.

ADA has the marineland double bright 36' long on his tank. I dont think he uses co2 though.

I got it too but i'm still in the dry start phase. on day 6 and my HC does seem to grow under the light if that helps. I do plan on putting co2 on my tank. Its rated to have 54 par at 12 inches by the manufacturer.

That is HC. I don't have foreground plants. For the list of plants I have, how I started, etc. feel free to look @ my journal @ the link below my sig

Absolutely gorgeous plants. What sp. of Erios are they? You must have RO water and Co2 in this tank? Very inspiring.. I see you have some really nice Bucephalandras there too

I've got the following:
  • Erio Cinereum
  • Erio Kimberly
  • Erio Japan
  • Erio Aussie II
  • Erio "Mini"

Trying to find space for a Erio Matto Grosso but that thing is huge! It's 100% RO and a little CO2. I'm cutting the CO2 once everything grows in and I add the expensive shrimps back in. Glad you like it!

If you cut the CO2 that'll be good for the shrimps, but your precious Erios might slowly melt away.

So what filters are people using on these--I guess I'm taking a poll. I know I want this to be the cleanest looking of all my tanks--I don't want to see any green tubes or black boxes for filters or heaters. And I'm not going to settle for anything less, I'll just wait until I can afford it.

I'm guessing I need a canister filter with clear tubing and lily pipes. Do you usually get the lily pipes separate after the other stuff so you know what size? Any advice out there? Looks like a lot of you are doing it right!

thanx sox

I was able to grow a Cinereum and "Mini" without CO2 in this tank. There was a definite stunt in growth, but overall they stayed very healthy and did not melt. Let's see if the others will play along.

Mine has been planted for a while but only flooded for a day, but here are a couple shots:



It's still just growing in, as you can see.

E. parkeri is beginning to flower:



Feel free to take a look around the journal for highlights of my DIYing and such. Spray bar, lighting stands, adding cooling fans sometime next week, yadda yadda.

These are really great tanks. Maybe my favorite.
