Cypress branch 40g Breeder(pic heavy)


Changed over my 55g to a 40g breeder a while back. It's so much easier to work in and i'm always playing.
I had it on an industrial style stand I built when turtles were using the tank and didn't care for the look in the living room so I built this stand over the last weekend.



Filtration:
Odyssea CFS 500 with diy spraybar
Eheim Ecco Pro 2232 diy spraybar and co2

Lighting:
Odyssea 36" T5 HO w/timer

CO2:
Aquatek Regulator on a 5lb Coca Cola tank
Inline Diffuser (ebay)

Ferts:
Ei dosing through 2 toms aqua lifter pumps on timers


Hardscape:
Manzanita(small pieces)
Local Cypress branch

Flora:
Ammania Senegalensis
Rotala Rontundifolia
Ludwigia Repens
Riccia
Crypt Wendtii
Vallisneria
Anubias Nana
Hygro angustifolia
Java Moss(hut)
Ranalisma rostrata,
Lindernia rotundifolia ‘Variegated’
Persicaria sp. 'Kawagoeanum
Alternanthera reineckii 'Lilicina'
Ludwigia inclinata 'Cuba'

Fauna:
1 Blue 3spot Gourami(The first fish almost 4 years ago)
7 Micronemacheilus cruciatus (Dwarf Hovering Loach)
2 BN pleco
1 lonely Otto
3 Rummy Nose Tetra
7 SAE




I'm planning on adding atleast 15-20 more Dwarf Hovering loaches.
also I want to add some foreground plants I had some Staurogyne repens started but it all melted away again.
