Seiryoku's 29g, First Planted Tank *R.I.P.*


Felt it was time to make a thread for my new tank! It has been up and running for about a month now.

Rena Filstar xP1
Hydor ETH In-Line Heater 200w
96w T5HO
Pressurized CO2 (GLA Regulator) w/ In-Line Reactor (not built yet, currently using a ceramic diffuser)
Cal Aqua "Double Check" Drop Checker (love it, very small)
PPS Pro Dosing
40 Pounds of Eco-Complete

Current livestock:
13 Cardinal Tetra
6 Rummy-Nose Tetra
4 Panda Corydoras
Unknown number of RCS

Plants:
3 Anubias Nana (tossed them in when I setup the tank)
Blyxa Japonica
Corkscrew Vallisneria
Downoi
Marimo Ball
Other plants I didn't keep track of...

Here is a bad picture of the tank.

Nobody's going to talk to you until you put a picture up...




Unless it's to tell you to put a picture up...

Yeah, they are rather sensitive to both ammonia and nitrite if I remember correctly.

Playing with the macro lens, little buggers wouldn't stop twitching!


My stash >_>


Got my second bag of eco-complete today, but don't think I'll get to adding it to the tank until tomorrow after work.

Added the second bag of eco-complete, doesn't appear to be anything wrong with it other than a handful of boulders I pulled out of it. Think I may have buried a panda cory though >_<; Can't find #5!

Added some plants too! I'll post some pictures after the dirt storm settles.

Dirt storm!


Clear enough for a picture, I suppose.


Almost sat on something when I turned around to sit down...

Added ~20 RCS to the tank today (thank you epicfish) at lunch. So far I've found ~17 of them, but one of the cherry barbs (still need to move them to my 46g) looks rather fat...

Glad to see more plants going in. Looks like you still have room for quite a few more!

I have 3-4 packages of plants arriving this week from various members here. Don't remember what they are all...hope I can make all three tanks look nice.

They are doing fine, was looking at them a few minuets ago. I think a cherry barb ate one or two, the cardinal and rummy-nose tetras were also chasing/nipping at a few when I first added them. General rule is, if it will fit in their mouth they will eat it, or at the very least try. Enough should survive if they have enough places to hide.

I'm pretty sure ghost shrimp will eat RCS and possibly interbreed with them.

Forgot to mention I'm getting 6+ Ottos tomorrow for the tank. Figure I'll lose a couple, sadly, and end up with 3-4.
