Dudebro's Tank - Realismo Mágico - Eheim Aquastyle 9


Showing the different angles and also the growth of my steam plant in the back. It's starting to peak out above the driftwood.

Increased light, c02 and starting ferts again. Hoping to get my steam to grow faster and hopefully I'll be able to turn it up a notch and not get algae takeovers.

Default Dudebro's Tank - Realismo Mágico - 10 Gal Eheim

I accidentally left my lights on over the weekend and had some sort of black algae outbreak. Luckily no fish died.

I ended up doing a large trimming to rid the algae. Shortly after the cleanup and trim I had another escapie. Down too two bloodfins now.

I have also moved the tank to a stand up against the wall. Rescaped it. And added limo tint to the back pane.

Here are some new shots.Click image for larger version

I like the new scape. It is always interesting to see how tank scapes change over time. Yours is looking nice.

Thanks. I hope to update the first page soon with a list of photos and dates showing the progression history.

It has really changed up a lot since I started it.

Default Dudebro's Tank - Realismo Mágico - Eheim Aquastyle 9

I added an Eheim 106 with some tubing from Home Depot. I really like the extra flow. I also like that I can slow the flow for feeding preventing food from getting on the bottom.

Its been two days. My water is very clear now. Very noticeable. 4x the filtration media and added carbon does the trick.

I had the valve on the unit completely open and it stirred all kinds of detritus off the bottom. I left it open to see how the fish would react and to suck out all the muck.With the extra water flow... Tetras like it, otos don't mind, dwarf gouramis seem to dislike it. Everything is peachy with the valve slowing the rate about 25 to 50 percent.

I hung the light on the back wall and took the old filter off.

It's all temporary for now. Moving in a month but here's a shot.

Nice update! I like the Fluval canisters, really easy to customize media. Looking good!

the addiction continues...

I should say the fluval has 4x filtration compared to stock filter on the aquastyle. In case there was confusion... The fluval is stock plus my old sponge and rough media.Click image for larger version

Rearranged and added a rock to separate foreground plants.

Anyone ever trim micro sword? I may want to even the height soon.

Added Lily Pipes - eBay from HK.

These are the poppy outflow medium size. They reduce the flow or keep it at the surface. The hosing is smaller than the standard so i assume its less flow. My filter is now turned all the way up and it there is less current in the aquarium. A lot more surface movement though.

So far so good.Click image for larger version

Nice looking light. What was the total cost?

40 filter used
15 tubing
12 clamp for light delivered
40 lily pipes delivered

I think that's it.

The Aquastyle came with a filter and the light was attached as a single unit. Same light but now it's clamped properly on the tank.

Neat. I wish they sold the light separately with that clamp
