i'm too excited to share this tank that i forgot to mention the spec heh..
- anyway, it's a 100x40x40cm custom made aquarium
- the stand is similar to ADA's
- 2 x 23 watts of compact fluorescent hanged (i love open aquariums).
- substrate is 1-2 mm black sand with base ferts.
- plants : anubias barteri, nana, bolbitis heudelotii, sagittaria subulata.

badsector
thanks for the reminder. i'm currently waiting for more plants to come and restricting my lights at 4 hours a day. water change will be twice a week for the next 1 month.

Erk
thanks. too bad i forgot to take a picture of it before tying anubias there

i use the ceiling downlight fixture and hang them. after that i use black thick paper to cover the uglyness.

anyway this tank's theme is messed up. at first i want to make an african habitat with plants like anubias and bolbitis, but then i can't find an african grassy plants for the foreground so i decided to use dwarf sag which is from the america continent.

for fish i'm planning to use tiger barb which is from south east asia. for background i'm gonna use vallisneria nana (if i can find some) which is from australia.

lol, it's the whole world habitat. a messed up really...

What a camuflage on the CF lights. I was fooled when there was no plant in it, thinking they were MH lights.

Once I saw anubias in it, suspicion kicks in

For once I ever consider the same, but my tanks are too big for pendant CF.

I was going to say the same thing. They really look like MH. I just can't belive that they are PC bulbs. Those are just great.

I can see i am going to love this tank. Subscribe*

Looks great!

Those lights didn't fool me if only you could fool the lights into thinking they where MH...

How about some Dwarf hair grass for the foreground, would look better IMO

lol i'm gonna give you guys my lighting photos, probably tonight. thanks for the comments, it's just simple actually, i love the lighting too!!

Fish Newb
i'm not sure if hairgrass will survive at this low lighting. i'm gonna use a lot more sagittaria subulata there and probably some echinodorus tenellus. can tenellus grow in this condition?

oh and i should mention that this tank is a non CO2 setting

as promised...

i use a downlight celiling housing with a really good reflector inside.


after that i measure the diameter of this housing to calculate the measurement then i use a black thick paper to make a cilinder and then double tape it around.

here is the finished view

bump.
no one gave comment about my lighting?

oh well... then i give you the fish addition update. i know it's a little too early to add any fish, but i just can't wait no more.

puntius tetrazona aka tiger barb.


beautiful fish IMO as they almost always travel together.


i'm currently searching to find some albino and green tiger barbs. any other suggestion for the fauna that's compatible with these fish?

thanks for looking
