daverock1337's 29g high tech & 10g rili shrimp !PIC HEAVY!


so i'm going to just cover both tanks in this one thread. i'm drunk, here we go:

29 gallon tank
mts subtrate capped with pfs
200 watt hydor inline heater
eheim 2215
5 lb co2 tank
110 watts cfl lighting (55 watts 6700k, 55 watts 3-6-10)

10 gallon rili tank:
simple pfs substrate
marineland double bright led

both tanks have tons of malaysian trumpet smnails and the ten gallon has some ramshorn snails. i have some assassin snails on the way for both tanks. for the 29 i have some rotala macranda japan red and a crypt nurii. i am also waiting on some plant trimmings from a fellow wv planted member to help fill out the tanks.

on to the pics!

current 29 gallon

Hey, buddy, glad to see you back in here. I hope everything is going well since the last you were in here posting. It's definitely nice to see some pics of the tank, and the progress of it now. Congrats on all the new Crypts, there are some REALLY nice ones you got coming. I never was really into Crypts, but since I got my lutea, I just love them. They will look really great in there with all your other ones. I love your flame sword as well. I wish my Queen Marble would have the chance to grow, but something keeps uprooting it. I'm not sure what is doing it, but it's out the day after I plant it, and growing really crappy.

most of the plants in the 10 gallon are extras that i stuck in there. it has pfs substrate, no ferts, and a 20 watt t8 fixture on it. i don;t expect many of them to thrive...

Wow, that was a TON of plants to have to plant. I bet you had hours of fun Both tanks look great, as always. I hope the plants are doing good after all the planting. Dude, that black Rilli is awesome! Good job, buddy, and thanks for the updates and pics.
