Kayen's 40B - Ferns galore - 12/4/2012


Just moved my 33g up to this guy, and with the help of .Mko. and us finishing midterms and having a 3 hour break between finals and midterms, we went ahead and embarked on this project. Pretty much purchased nothing except the AC70 powerhead and prefilter.

Some pics taken hours after setup and then specs:





Lighting: 1x39w T5HO Hagen Glo w/ Lifeglo bulb
Filtration: Eheim Ecco 2234
Other: Maxijet 400w/ sponge(not attached yet) + AC70 w/prefilter attachment
Substrate: Shultz Aquatic Soil

Plants: C. Wendtii, Java Ferns, Anubias Nana, E. Tenellus, random bits of moss and subwassertang.

Low tech, just flourish and excel 1x a week is the plan, easy maintenence. Looking to add a couple more river rocks and bit more anubias nana, and otherwise denser e tenellus in the back where it is.

looool seems you're the only person that cares on the thousands of people here, probably since i'm not an ADA-obsessed person like everyone else.
Water has since cleared up quite a bit more.
Picked up a bunch of filter media, and fish seem to be doing pretty happy in there.

All manzanita wood. In terms of stocking, couple rasboras, wcmm, ottos, angels, rainbows, loaches, sae, and i literally mean couples. I did not do stocking on this tank, they were all inhabiting the 33g and just got moved over.
