FTS Thread


So, it would be nice to see how much activity can be created here within the Indiana section. Just for fun and inspiration, if you have a picture of your tank(s), please post up a full tank shot.

Here's my most recent full tank shots of my tanks

- New 29 gallon (20L sump/refugium not running yet)


- Divided 10 gallon betta tank


- 20 gallon (no longer high tech)


- 29 hex blackwater (old shot, and hard to get good pictures)

Nice tanks everyone!

Here's the most recent of mine, even though it's a couple months old. I just did a big trim and added some Blyxa, so hopefully in another month everything will be back and filled in even more. (sorry for the bad cell phone pic)

Nice tanks!
Thanks Knuggs.
I had to look up what a Barclaya is. That would be a cool plant, but i dont have that one. The red plant that is right off center is a Aflame echindorous sp. Wild blood.

Tanks looking really good temple! Looks like you have been staying up on your scaping

Choas, I have never heard of the Aflame echindorous sp. Wild blood. Sorry but now I got all kinds of questions lol. I tried to look it up but didnt find much about it. How long have you had that? Is it the only one you have? Where did you get it? Has it always been that red? I know indiana water has a lot of iron in it so you prolly get alot of red from that. Is the new growth on it greener than the old leaves? How big does it get, like a regular sword plant?

How long have you had that?

5 months.

Is it the only one you have?

Yes.

Where did you get it?

Joraan

Has it always been that red?

The leaves are all most purple at times.

I know indiana water has a lot of iron in it so you prolly get alot of red from that. Is the new growth on it greener than the old leaves?

I average a leaf every 1-1 1/2 weeks. The great thing about this plant is it responds to parameter changes in the tank by color. When its happy i get almost purple growth from it. When it doesnt like whats changed the growth comes in green with red veins. Old growth turns almost black.
Heres a progression shot took a week to grow. Last pic is the most recent.

How big does it get, like a regular sword plant?
Shrugs shoulders.
From what i could find out it doesnt grow big. Thats why i moved it towards the front.
I have seen joraan selling these since.

That is an amazing looking tank nonconductive, it will be neat to see what you create when it is posted in your tank journal.

Nothing too spectacular. Just my two adjacent, low tech, five gallon riparium setups, set up since October.







The tank on the left houses 2 pairs of white cloud mountain minnows, 2 zebra nerite snails and a few pond snails. The tank on the right houses my male betta Larry, 3 pygmy corydoras and an olive nerite snail.

Both tanks are planted with water wisteria, anubias barteri, anubias barteri var. nana, java fern, java fern var. Windelov. The left tank also has a small unidentified crypt, a moss ball, and a small, unidentified stem plant. The terrestrial plants include several kinds of pothos and philodendron, purple waffle plant, neanthe bella palm, goldfish vine, aluminum plant (pilea), creeping fig, and syngonium (arrowhead vine). The right tank also has a lot of amazon frogbit.

Twice weekly doses of Flourish, weekly 50% water changes. Both tanks have 2 Aqua-tech 5-15 HOB filters which are quite heavily overgrown with plants now.
