Hi all, I posted in here previously, but the tank has filled in nicely since the last pics - hope you don't mind.

Here's my 55g. Set up with a subcurrent filter (that works about half of the time), and sponge filter, and 2 HO T5 bulbs with individual reflectors built into the hood. I don't usually dose anything, but occasionally use the aquavitro products and no CO2. I think I'm removing the angels today so I can move back towards little fish. I have some hemirhamphodon tengah coming into tomorrow. Sorry for the bad phone pic

My 220g has been up maybe three months now and is far from the anticipated scape. Until then,

I love seeing how lush low tech tanks can be!

Here's my little 10gal. I recently tore it down and then redid it, and I'm so happy I did. Much better then before (you can see the before/after and all the specs in my link in my sig). This is after three (?) weeks.

Here is my 30 gallons:



No CO2, no ferts, no water change, small internal filter for water movement.

low tech can be what ever you want. High tech usually designates a tank which uses CO2, high light and ferts.
