It is probably a good 5 inches long.

The thread will be revived because we can't sell our house! I don't have any good pictures of the tank. Waiting to sell some plants before I can get some pictures. Maybe this weekend or sometimes next week.

Big weekend for this tank and my fishroom. They will get a make over. The tank will get a new automatic dosing pumps, replanting/rearranging, filter cleaning, and new light bulb. I've already changed the regulator last night to a new stainless dual stage regulator with swaglok parts and ideal needle valve. Works like a charm. With these additions, it is almost full automatic. All I have to do is feed the fish, 4-6 months clean filter, every month refill my fertilizers.

My fishroom will get reconfigured with 8x 33gal long, new plumping, new air lines, additional insulation, and one emersed tank.

I will try to take before and after pictures.

Here are a few pictures of my fishroom. It has been butched up a little because I went from 20+ tanks to 10 tanks in there now.






A few pictures of materials:



Demo completed: I had to keep 4 tanks running as holding tanks for the fishes.




Rebuilding... installed racks for the tanks.


Drain rough-in completed.




Water line and valves installed.




Air piping installed.



Tanks placed, leveled, and fillin water.




The room is actually done. I have cleaned up the room. It is much neater and open. I will try to get a few pictures tonight or so.

Next phase is to start my automatic fert dosing for the 180 gal tank.

The whole process has taken more time than anticipated. So the 180 gal tank has been neglected.

Wow... it has been awhile since the last I updated this thread. I have neglected this tank for a couple of months now.

The bad news: Due to my negligent of this tank, all my crypts lost its leaves. I only lost a few crypts but I have lots of doubles. My new regulator out of the box, crap out and I stop fertilizing so that didn't help. With no CO2 and fert, the tank got over grown with algae. Last my filters were cogged with dirt.

The good news: I finally finished with auto fert dosing this weekend; hooked up the tank to the new auto water changing system; and I did a big cleaning of removing all the algaes. I will wait for a couple of weeks for the plants to recover before I rescape.

I will try to take some pictures tonight. Haha.. this time for real.

Default Pictures

Here are a couple of pictures of my completed fishroom as of today. Still need to caulk around the edges to eliminate/minimize air leaks for better insulation.




My water changing system: Real simple system... water goes through a regulator to reduce to 20 psi, then go into sprinkler shut off/on control, then run through 3 filters to remove particulars, then onto the tanks with shut off/on valves.



Auto fertilizer dosing system: One bucket is NPK and the other is CSM+B. They are pumped through by two peristatic pumps. It will inject 100ml of fert each day for 6 days (3 days for NPK and 3 days for CSM+B). From my calcaluation, this premixed solution should last me 3 months or so.




Here are some pictures of the tank. Kind of embarrassed to post these pictures. Not my proudest moment for this tank.

As you can see the grown from all the crypts are pathetic. All the crypts are extremely small and not as robust. Also displayed some melting. I hoping with a couple of weeks of this new system will give them some life so I can rescape.

Lastly, somehow I'm overrun with Affinis. I think I need to off load when they have bounced back.

Oh how cool, and what a shame, all wrapped in one emotion. Need to see that tank bounce back, Noodl3. Sweet set up going, though, and I love the autodosing system!

Your fish room and those c cordata rosanervigs are looking good Hung. It's good to neglect your tank and have a crypt meltdowns once a while. When the crypts are stressed, they have the tendency to send runners. A lot of runners. I've seen this happen to a lot of my crypts when I neglect them.
