Where's the Fish ?
I think I saw 2... :hehe:

Very healthy looking plants though ! I think some stone around your " ball " or even a nice piece of wood would just complete the look...

A nice school of neons or any flashy schooling fish could use a good home and that tank looks like a great home for them.

keep up the good work lorax...

Buck

I actually have: 3 silver mollies
2 rosy barbs
1 dwarf neon rainbow
4 botia loachata
5 ottos
varying amounts of ghost shrimp ( thanks to the Loaches )

I actually just got the ball 'o moss and I want to see how it does before I do any majaor arranging around it, but I thought it would be neat to get several aplace them together. Or sculpt a little Atlas and put the ball on his shoulders
:hehe:

Nice tank.

The wisteria looks great.

I have a 29 gallon also. Was wondering what you are running (Lights, filter, substrate, ferts).

I am running 4 24" flourescent bulb overdriven x 4. Currently I on have a powerhead with a sponge filter and a UV sterilizer. I have DIY Co2. The substrate is 1mm gravel with laterite. I've still trying out different ferts so I havent narrowed it to a set regime. but I do Nusalt, and fleet enema, and will probably strick wth that.
I do 50% and 25% water changes alternating every other week. I had a aquaclear filter that just died, so I am looking to replace with a canister filter soon. the ginormous tubes in the tank come from and to the UV sterilizer (which also works as my CO2 reaction chamber) and I want to replace those pretty soon. unlike most I run the sterilizer all the time. The main problem with a 29 Gal is the height, and the dissapation of light by the time it reaches the bottom.

Hi Lorax,

Like to Green ball stuff ! It look great sooooo fluffy !!. It will be stunning if you group them together as a fore ground decor.

By the way, how do you grew them ? or are they purchased ??


Cheers Thanks and a nice set-up tank too !
