Show me your Spec!


















It's a little "stick your head underwater in a river/pond and maybe you'll see this" scape. A bit haphazard an chaotic - just they way I like it lol. Also this is before I did a big trim on my blyxa and ludwiga red.

As you can see, my S. Repens isn't doing so hot. I'm going to try one more time with it and if it fails again, I'll just add some sort of fine sand (brownish earthy color) and call the scape done.

Enjoy!

Super nice. What light you have? Do you dose CO2 and what's your maintenance like?

Agreed, and I second the question!

Thanks for the compliments guys!

So here's the complete setup:

Flora:
  • Blyxa Japonica
  • Ludwiga Red
  • Java Fern Windelov
  • Fissiden Fontanus
  • Crypt Wendtii
  • Nesaea Crassicaulis

Fauna:
  • Dwarf Vietnamese Minnow
  • Mountain Cloud Minnow (this was a mistake - i thought they were the dwarf vietnamese minnows OOPS!)
  • Red Cherry Shrimp
  • Pygmy Cories
  • Bumblebee Goby
  • Scarlet Badis
  • Otocinclus

This one sits in my office and maintenance is quite low. I can get away without trimming for about a month, except for the luwdiga red - I have to trim that every 2 weeks but its' quite simple. Again I sort of enjoy it when it's a little more messy - more like nature so that may be a personal preference.

Thanks!

The light in your picture doesn't look like a fudgeray planted+ 16". Maybe you intentionally hung it higher?

And you are not using the cover/lid, right?

I am planning to buy the same light. Thanks for sharing yours!

That is the Fugeray original, not the planted series. I wanted an open tank as I struggled with hard water stains on the Spec V cover, and the plastic just didn't sit well with me.

What I did to hang the Fugeray is took off the legs and ran galvanized steel wire rope (can't recall the exact gauge) through the slots where the legs attach. I then fitted the rope to eye hole screws that are, in turn, attached to a bent steel bar.

It allows me to adjust the height of the fixture and it looks more professional that way.
