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.

Red face Dear Santa, Easter bunny, tooth fairy...

I cannot find one locally and its driving me nuts. Ive contemplated building a "like" version but anxiety of the build has driven me to a halt.

Lucky people!

Send a PM to SevenportsJohn, he'll be able to tell you the closest store if you don't want to order from Marine Depot.

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.
