George's 29g tank New pics from 12/20/06


Just for reference, here is a pic of my tank from may 13 of 2003. So you can see where I started . Hard to believe it was not that long ago!




Here is the last pic of my tank, taken on Nov. 14 of 2003. I plan on taking another shortly. I have since gotten rid of the Tonina as it just was not growing well for me. Guess it didn't like my water too much.

Thanks everyone. If anybody has some constructive criticism I will gladly take it. Although I think I'm probably my own harshest critic. Here are the specs and all:

Tank size: 29 gallons

CO2: pressurized

Reactor: mini-vortex

Lighting: Coralife Aqualight, 130 watts (6500k, 10,000k)

photoperiod: 1 hr@ 65watts, 11 hrs @ 130 watts, 1 hr @ 65 watts

Substrate: plain and coated gravels, laterite, volcanit mixture

Fauna: neon tetras, cardinal tetras, featherfin rainbows, celebese rainbows, brass tetras, endler's livebearers, SAE's, otos, C. pygmaeus, red cherry shrimp, japonica shrimp, snails

flora: A. nana, H. micranthemoides, C. lutea, C. wendtii, H. leucocephala, L. arcuata, L. repens, Sagitarria Subulata, E. stellata, R. indica, A. reinickii, L. aromatica, H. corymbosa, and D. Diandra (I think that's it.... :lol: )

ferts: flourish 3-4x a week, flourish iron 3-4x a week, potassium nitrate weekly at water change if needed, potassium sulfate twice a week, monopotassium phosphate twice a week

water parameters: pH: 7.0, KH 4-5, nitrates: >5 ppm, phosphate about 1.0ppm

Water changes: 50% weekly

Heater: 150 Watt Ti with external LCD

And I think that about covers it all. :lol:

Filtration: Eheim pro II 2026

That photo does not do George's aquarium justice. I have seen it in person and let me tell you it is super clean and absolutely gorgeous! This guy grows Eusteralis stellata like I grow Riccia!

Mike and George,

How far are you guys from NJAS meeting spot ? Maybe we should meet up an hour or so before and check both of your tanks. I will bring the camera and take some pictures.

BTW. I was appointed to be GAP (Growers Award Program) Chairman for NJAS society. I'm looking forward seeing some movement especially from both of you guys.

Are you familiar with below link ?

I'm about 5-10 minutes away in Rutherford, the next town over from where the meeting is held. Mike is probably about 20 minutes further away than that. I don't have a problem with doing that before the January meeting. Gives me some time to get it ready for pictures!

Jay, you need to fill me in on the Growers Award. I don't know how it works. You are welcome to take photos of the aquarium. I just need to get some off to Fender here at PlantedTank first!

Mike
