Salmons 75-P: amazon somethin or other (56k)


Well after looking at an empty 75P sitting on my kitchen table for nearly 4 months, I finally have it planted and on a dry start. Wasn't planning on doing a DSM but ran into a last minute issue getting my CO2 tanks, it will probably work for the better anyways as Im fairly sure most of the plants were cultivated emmersed. Not %100 satisfied with the hardscape, but lots of time to tweak it. Not overly happy my rocks don't even make it 1/2 way of tank height, but it is what it is.

Tank/Equipment Specs:

-ADA 75P -75x45x45cm
-ADA substrate system (powersand, 5 elements, new Amazonia)
-Eheim 2217
-Cal Aqua Lilys
-10# Co2 tank
-Dual stage matheson reg
-DIY Cree LED build w sunrise/set controller (light in pics is 24w T5HO)
-DIY stand -37" tall
-hydor 200w inline heater
-Atomic diffuser
-Ryouh stone 30ish lbs
-EI dosing

Flora:

-Crypt Lucens
-C. Becktii 'Petchi'
-C. Parva
-C. Nurii
-Downoi
-Ranalisma rostrata
-Tonina sp 'Manus'
-Ludwigia Arcuata
-Rotala sp nanjenshan 'Mayaca'
-Hygro polysperma 'Ceylon'
-Nesaea Crassicaulis

Fauna:

-none for a couple months. open to any ideas and suggestions though

'updated' possible options for a single school so far:

-WCMM
-Penguin tetras
-Coral red pencilfish
-P. gertrudae ARU
-Lemon tetras
-Silvertip tetras
-Ember tetra
-sawbwa reslendens (if I can find them)
-cardinal tetra
-rummynose (have in other tank already so unlikely)

iphone pics for now














Thanks for looking!

I don't even want to think about how much ryuoh stone it would take to pile up to that golden rule sweet spot. You've got some great rocks here, and you've arranged them very well. I'm really looking forward to seeing how this tank progresses.

Haha no me either but I have thought about it. thats about 30 lbs right there so would need at least double that/larger pieces. fairly pleased how it turned out with what it is. thanks for the kind words!

Thanks some good ideas! Already have rummynose in another tank and love them, but dont want the same fish in multiple tanks. Cardinals are also always a good go to, and I've always wanted black neons too.

quick day 3 update, most of the plants expect for one type of crypt (guess which one ) are doing great and responding well to the environment.

first time with a real emmersed/DSM setup so I'm really trying to baby it. frequent misting and daily air exchanges. humidity is very high, it's like putting your hand in a greenhouse when taking the cling wrap off. contemplated using some tank water from my 13g to mist with, but changed my mind as there is some algae in there and I dont want anything transfered to this tank. all plants are tissue cultured so trying to avoid adding anything that could "contaminate" the condtions (snails, algae, disease).

onto some pics of the plants

Hi ,
It's nice aquascape style, what kind of rock do you use? Plants remain on the emersion period? Can I make suggestions for other fish: Thayer boehlkei, Rasbora heteromorpha, Boraras Brigittae, Microrasbora Galaxy.

I really like your plant selection. I love seeing crypts in higher end setups like this. I can't wait to see how this grows out. Your rocks are a bit low laying so they will probably get covered up a good bit, but I like that look.

Thanks again! Rock used is Ryouh stone, hence the title name

Yep still emmersed, probably at least another week or more.

Good suggestion on the Penguin Tetras (thayer boehlkei) that is an option I have been considering!

Thanks! Indeed some odd plant choices for a rockscape, but I like it too. My only regret is that the rocks are as low laying as they are like you mentioned. need larger/more pieces or some plain gravel or lava rock stuffed in pantyhose underneath. still I probably wont change a thing and see how it fills in.

Hey clau74, sorry meant no offense....have been able to understand what you saying so far. Ryouh stone is a fairly common rock used for aquascaping and its from Japan (to the best of my knowledge)

Not entirely sure what you mean by the last couple sentences but if you have any questions feel free to post.....and thank you for your fish stocking suggestions so far! Have a good one
