My Fluval Ebi! New Pic 12/5


Still in the process of getting everything the way I want it.

Right now in the tank there is:

3 - Dwarf Puffers, which is probably one too many but they are all getting along well so far.
2 - Ottos
3 -Amano shrimp.

I am also still waiting on my co2 setup..

Let me know what you think!

That is really awesome. I'd love to see it grow in, the wood is crazy. You might want to consider adding red stems to the back. I think that'd look great.

I personally don't like puffers, but that's just me.

Lol man, you used the same filter plug method as I did, great minds think alike?

Man if I wanted an EBI before this thread, I reallllly want one after seeing this one, good job on the scape. What filter plug are you guys talking about the extra foam? Are you guys running the filter full blast? It puts out alot of flow even in my 10 gallon.

Thanks everyone!

I will agree, the wood is pretty awesome. My LFS has tons of branch like pieces.

I like the puffers I think they are fun to watch, they seem to have a lot of personality.

The foreground is HC, but its not doing too great at the moment without co2. It also got hair algae on it within a few days but it seems to be clearing up now. I should have co2 within a week or so, I hope it makes it that long.

I got an extra Fluval light fixture, so its 2 x13 watts at 6400K.

Any suggestions for red stems in the back of the tank? There are about 5 stems of red ludwigia on the left, and just some Cabomba on the right. I would definitely like to fill out the background some more.

The 'filter plug' is just that extra piece of white foam that I added behind the intake in the empty media slot. I do have it running full power, and aimed at the surface slightly. Doesnt seem to be too much for anyone in the tank.

I was thinking about gluing a thin sponge on the outside filter intake. I am going to stuff the 1st chamber full of floss, but I'd feel safer if the outside was covered in sponge.

I love pea puffer faces, so sweet, yet so vicious.

Your Ebi looks fantastic! I got one for Christmas too! I need to find a piece of driftwood like yours! I am going to put the larger Fluval Co2 on the setup, it has a great valve to control the bubbles. I have one on my 20 gal and I also like the way the ceramic diffuser works. Hope I can achieve a look like yours.----boB

Great looking tank! Please take a look at mine too. Here's the link: http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/ta...luval-ebi.html

I agree that the driftwood is totally sick. We have our Cabomba in the same place in the tank LOL. Also what heater is that? How much did you pay for that, and how many watts. Because I got ripped off 30 bucks for one, why don't they just bump up the price of the tank and include one? And what do you keep your temp at? Mine is at like 72-76 throughout the day. Nice tank dude!

very nice looking tank !

I am also setting up my Fluval Flora tank and I may change the mini Co2 system. What is the Co2 system that you plan to use in your Ebi ?

Wow sweet! I love that driftwood and you`ll love those puffers. I had 5 of them in my 90 gallon at one point. They`re hilarious....full of personality. Great looking tank.

Looks great. What is your LFS? Hopefully, you're not in a part of NJ too far from me.

Did you buy the shrimp locally as well?

Yeah, I really dig that peice of driftwood as well. Where did you get that from?

It's so hard to find nice pieces of wood for nano tanks like these.
