Low tech 60P (17 gallon)


For the past six months I've had some good luck with a modest 6 gallon shrimp tank, so I thought of trying a slightly larger tank for a bit more color and movement.

I splurged on buying a lovely 60P tank. The glass quality and workmanship is beautiful. The rest of the equipment is typical standard gear. I am aiming for a low maintenance aquarium, without CO2 and daily plant trimming. So far, this is the plan. Two weeks ago I was pretty excited to receive three boxes of goodies from Angelfins packed with all the gear and wonderful healthy plants from Tropica. Thank you for having a look

Equipment:

60-P garden aquarium
Azoo 360 filter (small and very quiet)
Hydor 100Watt heater
Zoomed aquasun LED 24"
Eco complete

Flora:

Ceratophyllum demersum (hornwort)
Cryptocoryne parva
Bacopa australis
Echinodorus 'Aquatica"
Anubius barteri var. nana
Microsorum pteropus 'Narrow"

Fauna (proposed):

9 cherry barbs
1 honey gourami
6 amano shrimp

Some photos!!!



Driftwood from the beach picked up on vacation. One of my colleagues autoclaved it to cook the bugs. I mounted it on plexiglass.




Everything set up and running

Looks good man. Really like that driftwood and how you mounted it on the plexi.
