Default Dismantling

Hey there! I am in Seattle and I am actually getting rid of my 45H gallon community tank this week. After about 5 years of maintaining it is time for a break!

I am not getting rid of any equipment, since I am sure I will set it up again in the future, but I have a bunch of fish and plants to get rid of! And some food and plant nutrients, etc. Anyone interested? See the list below! I will give the plants away for free (since most of them have green algae - nothing worse than that though), but would be open to offer on the fish. I'd be most happy to give them all to the same person, but if you want specific items let me know.

PM me if you are interested!

Thanks!

J

Fish:
Cardinal Tetras (5)
Rasboras (14)
Dwarf Chain Loaches (5)
Siamese Algae Eaters (True) (3)
Red and Yellow Platties (5)
Ottos (3)
Corys (3)

Plants:
Java Fern
Red Rubin Sword
Anubias Nana Petite
Anubias Nana
Anubias Kwango Minima
Cryptocoryne Willisi
Rotala Macrandra

Hi All,

I grow a few plants.

You should have seen some of the great plants in the 'mini-auction' Tuesday night after the GSAS Presentation on Planted Nano Tanks by Karen Randall (AGA). There were Hydrocotyle tripartita, Marsilea minuta, Pogostemon erectus, Hygrophila pinnatifida, Eriocaulon parkeri, and Eriocaulon cinereum just to name a few! We have some great plant growers in our club!

Plants: HC, moss balls, Nesaea triflora, Heteranthera zosterifolia, Rotala macrandra (narrow leaf), and dwarf hairgrass. Tried Blyxa japonica, but it started to melt, so I throw in my 55g low tech tank and see what will happen.

Just added some corals in my canister. Looks like pH shot up to around 6.2, will do another WC and remove half the corals to see if I can get it to stabilize to 6.0 - 6.2.

I also had initial algae problem, but reduce light/CO2 time from 12 hrs to 9 hrs and added Excel right after WC (did around 50% for a few days). Looks like that did the trick. Have tank running for a little a month. This is the first planted hi-tech tank for me, so all a learning curve.

I will check with Liem down in the ID and see if he has any Badis.

that is soooo beautiful...

I really like the lights on that tank. If you can share, what are they and where did you get them?

Thanks!

Default Lights

They are actually purchased from Ikea (one of their stand) lights. We mounted them (via the pole) to the back side. PM me if you need add'l info. Used 27w, 6500K cfl. I only have one light on for about 7 hours total (in 2 intervals). The cost worked out, but my husband does not like the brightness (at couch level), he wants to put some type of surround cover, but I explained "this is a rimless tank, so no rims"

I have attached updated pictures. Will at some point just have purple bamboo in the back and dhg. Did p/u lily pipes from Shrimplab a couple of months ago.
