Default Blackwater Paradise Expansus

This journal is for my 75 gallon blackwater tank.

I am taking down my 29 gal blackwater paradise and my 40 gal crypt utopia and combining the inhabitants and plants into this new tank.

I plan for it to be a planted blackwater tank like my 29 gal.

It will have Miracle Gro Organic Choice Potting Mix with Pool Filter sand cap.

Filtration provided by 2 canister filters

lighting will be 4-5 bayco worklights with 6500K CFLs

Hardscape will be driftwood, rocks and oak leaves.

Plants include anubius, crypts, alternanthera, java fern, micro sword, chain sword and perhaps others.

Fish include zebra loaches, apistos, cories, tetras, cherry barbs, harlequin rasboras, otos, and angels. overtime these will change to be more focused on SA fish.

Here is a youtube video of the progress.
Pictures to come later.
