Resurrecting an older 75 Gallon


Hi All,

I've recently gotten back into the hobby after a long hiatus of over 15 years. I still have my 75 gallon tank and luckily it still held water and no leaks so far. It's been up for 6 weeks now and completed the cycle. It's a low budget low tech setup with the original gravel and filters from before. My setup is listed below.

Full shot of the tank


Equipment
-- 75 gallon All-Glass Aquarium (I don't know when the name changed to Aqueon but I know mine is an All-Glass)

-- Emperor 400 (Broken impeller waiting on new replacement)

-- AquaTech 30-60 (Soon to be replaced with new Emperor 400 and this will be moving to a 29 or 45. Have to admit I'm pleasantly surprised at how quiet this filter is after sitting for so long.)

-- 2 - 4' shoplight fixtures mounted in a wooden hood with new 32w T8 6700K bulbs

-- Mix of aquarium specific gravel and store bought 3/8" Pea Gravel

Inhabitants
8 - Harlequin Rasboras (Trigonostigma heteromorpha)
8 - Scissortail Rasboras (Rasbora trilineata)
8 - Neon Tetra (Paracheirodon innesi)
5 - Black Neon Tetra (Hyphessobrycon herbertaxelrodi)
8 - Glowlight Tetra (Hemigrammus erythrozonus)
1 - Otocinclus

Anacharis
Rotala Indica
Myriophyllum Tuberculatum

Waiting for positive ID for the following
Blue Hygro?
Narrow Leaf Hygro?
Amazon Sword?
Brazilian Sword?
