That's an awesome tank. I wish I had space to put a tank that big.
You don't have to rush bumping up the fertilizers. Your tank is only 3 weeks old

I noticed you had a combination of Angels and Rainbows. I am setting up a tank now and am planning on doing a group of 6 young Angels which I will then narrow down to four when they mature and a school of 15-20 Dwarf Neon Rainbows. I was a bit worried that the Rainbows might be fin nippers but haven't come across that in any materials. Have you had any problems?

Great tank

ninoboy, thanks for the compliments. I am definetly cutting back on the ferts.
Blade, I have not had any problems with the rainbows and angels together. Only the rainbows are tearing apart the glosso, and the angels look for anythying small to fiit in their mouths, like shrimp, small fish and plants. Just watch them, they are still a cichlid.

Okay, so the tank has evolved. The CO2 waste is non existent anymore. The main pump has changed and the plants and fish have either been swapped or grown. I think this look is much better. I am just waiting for the Radicans in the back to grow and fill in there. Other than that everything is running perfect. I might need to dose more Iron, however I have been cautious. What does everyone think?

Beautiful tank!

I would just get some more tall background plants but I like to have the back wall of my tanks covered by plant growth...

I'm thinking about getting a tank your size and was wondering: how much time do you spend on maintenance per week?

Nick, ther are 20 onions plants there, and they get trimmed every week, or they will grow over the rest of the tank. The bulbs are in the substrate except for the top of it where the plant stem starts to emerge. A great plant, and easy too! I got them from Arizona Aquatic Gardens, ask for Peter, he really set me up.

Laith, I agree wioth covering up the back wall, so I put some Radican swords back there(2) and hopwfully they will grow over teh Anubias in time. I thought about putting a huge Java Fern back there, but I wimped out. I am still playing with it, just something missing and I cannot figure it out.

I spend a lot of time just because I have been rearranging the tank so much, otherwise i wouldn't spend more than a couple hours a week.


Thanks for the comments and any advice let me know.
