20L Planet Green!


Seen everyones pictures on here and decided to put mine up, I don't have near the artistic touch with photos as some of the people here but oh well. My tank is alot smaller to, I use DIY co2 diffused through a limewood airstone which works great. I've also got a coralife 2x6700k 18W T5 fixture, 6500k 15W Fixture, and a 20W 6700k fixture. Flourite as my substrate, and currently I have just been housing 4 ADF, about 10-15 ghost shrimp, and two different species of dwarf cichlids ( baenschi, cacatuoides triple red). Each male has 2 females. And 4 oto cats. So a total of 10 fish. Anyways, I was attempting to try the whole planted tank thing and if it went well I was going to setup a 55gal I have sitting in my garage... which now I am going to start rounding up supplies for!

The wisteria has just taken off, I love that plant.

I forgot to mention the tank is only 1 month old, this is what it looked like in the beginning:

I would like to, but right now I am having some algae issues.. So until I can scrap the algae out of my 20L I won't be setting up the 55.

Nice tank! You seem to be like me, do one tank at a time, get that one balanced and move to the next one. I am about to do my third! Good luck!

Well after the blackout here thanks for the wonderful Ice Storm, I decided to replant everything as I couldn't find some of my dead fish and didn't want them just rotting behind a wall of plants.

Pulled everything and gave it all a good cleaning, and decided to just try a new scape. Not much, but I wanted something new - will see how this turns out.

Not really, the male and female just got really guarded when they had fry. Other then that they were fine.
