Default Finally Filled | 40B Farm Tank

So, finally got the 40B filled with water. Was a PITA trying to get the canister going, since it was level with the tank..
Still waiting for the call back on my 5lb to be filled at the shop and got a huge order from Han (h4n) coming in Wednesday.

Heres how the garden looks so far..

my view from my bed (tiny room!)

Soon to be Anubias/Bucephalandra/PFR Tank.


Bee Shrimp Tank


Still in the process of clearing up. Hopefully it'll be filled up once large shipment of plants arrive.

Thanks Han.

The crypts in 40B are Florida sunset, they seem to me losing the red/white in them as there submerged leaves take over.

Bee tank are S. Repens 049 and Bruce tank are just anubias Nanas

looks great. 40B take up a good amount of room... especially when you do not already have a lot of it. Nice organizational skills

Default re-organized 6/20/13

So, I've been getting a little frustrated on purchasing used 3-4 month old aqua soil.. lots of dust covering plants.. so, I imagined that bc i carefully added water into the used soil, with very minimal disturbance to the substrate, I whole walnut analogy of smaller particles falling to bottom, never really worked out?

So, again... took out all plants and this time purposely stirred up soil causing a dirty mess... siphoned a ton of the dirty water out.. and added fresh water... repeated this process a few times, and the very last time, seemed like everything settled in nicely.

As i added plants back in, I notice very minimal cloudiness of dust floating around water, which brought a lot of relief.

few minor changes:

Moved outflow across the intake filter and will be hooking up a co2 reactor to make co2 more efficient.

Heres a fresh picture:
Water still cloudy

Default High Light Tank

So, Im enjoying farming plants a ton now and because of limited space, I took down my iwagumi scape to be my high light grow out tank...

Lots of fun having a small downoi farm..

Will be adding erio cineriums from Sean (sjb1987) in the front row.

Picture as it stands:

I really like how you arranged the plants in the 40b! Awesome... can't wait to see it grow all full & lush for ya.

Hah good idea, grow out tank. That's kinda what one of my picotopes are for right now, lol. Random plants I don't have room for or didn't work in the Flora for one reason or another.

So jealous of your rack too. Where'd you get it? I need something like that. Only have 2 1/2 tanks set up atm but I'd so have more if I had more places to put em.

haha thanks so much!
It took me a ton of work just getting the tank cleared out haha.. and of course tieing all those mosses ZZzzz... lol

Thanks! Im always still looking for more stuff to collect... but doesnt look like I really have the room hehehe

Yes! Random plants are always fun, never know when you'll need them for a particular scape.

I got it at home depot, this one exactly..

http://www.homedepot.com/p/Trinity-5...6#.UcQJ9JWkKDo

it was 50% so I figured I could customize it..

I have the 40B on the wire and on a piece of wood (on floor). these racks arn't ment for hold a ton of weight.

Those things would hold them perfect! and you can toss your other fish/plant related items on it too hehe

As far as room to collect more stuffs goes... if there is a will, there IS a way

Sweet, thanks for the link. The price isn't bad at all, even not on sale. Last fish tank stand I bought cost way more. Just imagine how many nano's I could have if I had this rack.... O.o.O.o lol

It'll prolly be the next 'big' item I get. Def before I go setting up another tank. You mentioned you customized it. What did you do to it? It's late/early... so if it's been posted already my bad.

Being on this forum does NOT help keep this hobby in check, lol. But hey, the more the merrier, right?


BTW what was the spikey grass like plant in the "Do!aqua Mini L" before the rescape? Bylxa Japacona (sp)? If so need to get me some better lighting so I can grow some... freaking love it!
