Our 20g has begun cycling after about 3 weeks. Nitrates, nitrites, and ammonia all present. We are doing a fish less cycling too without any use of Cycle or pure ammonia. Very excited that we are able to do it this way.

Currently the 20long is stocked with driftwood and slate, along with various plants: water sprite, amazon sword, roatalia, java ferns, and an anubias. Some from our 10g, which brought in some pond snails . We are also using azoo substrate, which was very easy to work with as it did not cloud the water at all.

Will definitely post some pictures soon.

Stay tuned! ^_^

Thinking of stocking options for the 20 long. Possibly galaxy or axelrod rasboras. As for the cleanup crew maybe more amano shrimp or a variety of shrimp and some cory cats or more otos. Pretty undecided still! :X

Default Micro is micro


Awesome anubias micro we received from our LFS! Perfect for our 5g micro tank.

Added some Indian almond leaf to the tank in hopes of providing anti-fungal and bacterial qualities and hopefully get the ph down slightly. The crushed coral brings my 7.2 tap to 7.5 but gives me the gh that keeps my cherry shrimp happy.

Anyway, hoping I find some sort of medium using somewhat natural methods.

Tetras are doing fine in the higher ph but I'd like to see them a bit happier.

Default 20g Long with CO2 progress



Along with the addition of the co2, we introduced some livestock: white cloud minnows, a nerite snail, amano shrimps, and some more otos. We also moved our neon tetras and one remaining amano shrimp from our 10g to this tank. It's a nice community we have now.

We also added some new plants: frog bit, rotala vietnam, and hydrocotyle verticillata (we have been calling it the "pogo" plant).

The scape was also updated with ryuoh stones.


View from below of the frog bit.


Our ludwigia, rotala, hairgrass etc... forest.


Pogos to the right, plus ryuoh stones.


Nerite friend nom-nom-noming.
