A product of this forum


Just want to share a picture of my 20g -- a product of the knowledge I've gleaned from this forum. You're all guilty of fueling a pleasant obsession. Thank you.

20g, XP1, 65W PC 8 hrs/day, pressurized CO2 (1 bps), Flourite, EI dosing.
Windelov, java fern, crypt. balansae, eleocharis parvula, sagittaria subulata, glossostigma elatinoides, and crypt. wendtii.
In hiding apparently are 3 Apistogramma cacatuoides, 3 otos, and some amanos.

WOW! Great looking tank! Can't wait till the glosso fills in a bit more, but you might eventually take it out since it'll suffocate the rest of your ground covers xD

Very nice, it pays to read a lot !
You dont find aquariums like that in just any old household. It is an obsessional thing we do with rewards.

Thanks all.

Waterfaller1: Light is a Coralife 65W 6500k and filter is a Rena XP1 canister.

ikuzo: The ferns are attached to rocks. The windelov is tied around a tall piece of rock (actually two pieces glued together) shaped like the Washington Monument. The plant then grew around it over time and now looks like a big thick tree.

Thank you Hydro. I have a 20L I keep thinking of setting up, but not sure which way to go with. Yours is sweet. What is the big plant on the left?

Waterfaller, the plant on the left is the windelov, a variety of fern (Microsorum pteropus 'Windelov'). It's a very hardy plant and it gets quite thick given good conditions.

I like the longer dimension of a 20L. Mine's a 20H. I didn't know about the 20L when I got my tank. I think the 20L is definitely better for aquascaping.
