Just set up my 6 footer 125g.
Still cycling, and waiting for 30+ plants, and driftwood from Tom before I do any type of a aquascape

I still have to build the canopy, build the back ground panel and skin the entire stand. This will be my winter project

The BuildMyLED unit finally arrived, so here's my contribution...water only went in two weeks ago, so it'll take some time for things to grow out.

Figures I'd put my tanks up.


This is a new tank - 6x2.5x2 - has 20 baby Threadfin Rainbows in there. This picture was taken before fish arrived. As you can see, the plants are barely visible. There are several crypts and about a dozen Red Tiger lotus behind the driftwood.





And this is my high tech 6x2x2. This was just rescaped 2 days ago. Still not 100% completed and the tank is still dirty as you can see.

angelcraze, I'll post updates in my build thread. Already starting to get algae, so high light/no CO2 must be working its magic.

Default 125 Dirted

Here is my tank...

125 Dirted
FX5, 2 - 36" T5HO

Fish -
5 - Angels
2 - Diamond Tetra
1 - bushy nosed pleco
5 - Cardinal Tetra
5 - Serpae Tetra
1 - siamensis
3 - Albino Cory Cats
1 - CAE
1 - Bumblebee goby
6 - rummy nosed tetra
4 - platy's/guppies used to cycle the tank

Open to suggestions...I'm low on K right now so my swords are shot, doing a water change and fertilizing tomorrow. I would like to get a couple of discus/altums. I will be moving in the next 3 months and will re-dirt and scape the tank. The driftwood on the left will be coming out.

Started as ow have pressurized CO2 and dosing EI ferts.

HELP !!!
All was going great (growth-wise) now just 3 weeks ago green beard (aka fuzz) algae popped up and it laughs at every single attempt I've read for correcting the issue. H2O2 & Excel do not work for this stuff.

Tank still looks great from 8-10ft away. I've got a little girl on the way...due in Nov and will not have time to deal with it if I cannot get it balanced by then.

Pics show from April then in June. I need to get the better pics off my camera from July (prior to algae issue).
Funny quoting myself here but it's nice to look back at this past April when I first started out my overhaul from Low Tech to what I have now, the learning curve & winning the algae battle thanks to this forum:
