Start of my new 55 gal


The 29gal is now filled with play sand, a couple rocks and a piece of driftwood, waiting until its owner makes up his mind on what to make of it.

Meanwhile, the new 55 gallon is starting up. I'd like to post a few pictures here, at least so that I can update my signature!

A few technical details:
Size: 55 gallons
Substrate: Turface MVP "red"
CO2: JaggedFury DIY Paintball setup, running into a Hagen Elite DIY "reactor"
Light: CurrentUSA Nova Extreme 48" T5HO strip 54Wx2
Filter: Eheim 2217
Flora: Hygrophila polysperma, Bacopa monnieri, Micranthemum umbrosum, Ambulia, Rotala rotundifolia, Echinodorus tennellus, Hygrophila difformis, Aponogeton madagascariensis
Fauna: Two pairs of marble Pterophyllum scalare (Angelfish), a female adult Mikrogeophagus Altispinosus (Bolivian Ram), and about 30 of her 1yr old offspring.

I don't have full tank shots yet, because the ones I took turned out crappy. There are some I liked though, below.

Thank you. I don't consider myself a good photographer, but do get lucky sometimes. My camera is a Canon S3. Would love an SLR some day, but never feel like I can justify the cost.
