PS - change of venue on our may meeting too.. it will be at UCO - Leighanne's anniversary event has been scaled back considerably so we're doing a video presentation for this meeting instead.. (FYI)

Anytime! (after this weekend) ;0)

email - the_submariner@hotmail.com

Here's a (semi) current pic of one of my last layouts..



These are about a month old.. I've experienced quite a bit of blue/green (bacterial) algae plus some slime/fuzz due to lack of good circulation and water maintenance, but the tank is beginning to bounce back now



and some of the fauna

KJ/Gema, thanks for the comments.

I've done quite a bit of remodeling since these pics but more or less same concept.

To answer your questions KJ,
Tank is a 75 gallon (US), background is styro-epoxy custom
Substrate is EcoComplete Black (w/ some red mixed in w/ peat balls and black - bad idea - aquarium gravel)
Lighting is 4 X 65WCF 12 hours + 2 X 55W T5HO 10 hours
I do inject CO2 thru a bubble counter recessed into background - along w/ & just underneath filter intake tube. No idea of bps count, but enough to keep plants pearling during afternoon/evening - but not so much fish gasp at surface in morning ;0)

Also fertilize (semi) regularly w/ dry fert mix/recipe + Excel (Glut) + a liquid FE & Trace mix.

Most plants acquired thru trade on-line or w/in the OK Aquarium Club membership - not much of them available locally

I can add a list of species if you'd like (buts its extensive!)

Nice Work Gema, those shrimp look awesome..

Bit more light and maybe some CO2 and you could try some HC or UG for the substrate instead of the Najas (guppy grass)

I (was) growing out some UG via the dry start method but burned the whole patch up when moving it outdoors into sunlight to "speed" up the growth process... patience is a tough gig
I'm in the process of trying to locate more of it to start all over again (3 months in the making and nothing to show for it at present)

Good to know KJ!
I checked your post list and couldn't find links to your 210 Planted post.. would love to see that!!
Always good to have another "plant-nut" in the group.. we're a very mixed lot.. some w/ just marine tanks, others just fresh, many with both ;0)

I've kept Marine (soft coral set up) but got too expensive for me to maintain 'the right way' and I am way too lazy to do regular water changes and that was the big key .. so, I just stick to my planted tanks now ;0)

Get in touch w/ me once you're local.. Our next club meeting will be at a members home in SW OKC - so be a perfect time to get to meet other club members and check out some cool tanks; planted and reef both! September's meeting is also going to be a home meeting.. and that's another one you won't want to miss.. (you too Gema!)

Hope to see you both there next month (Aug 6).. check out our forum at tokac.org or our facebook fan page _ http://www.facebook.com/pages/Oklaho...b/273735869347
for specific times (don't have them from the member yet ;0)

Joe

Ok guys and gals.. this weekend is the meeting day for our August club meet.. Time will be 5 pm (so some of our members who work can attend as well) at club member Deborah & Jerry Degraffenreid's home (I don't have addy handy but its posted on our forum at TOKAC.ORG)
Hope to see you both there (and any others lurking too!
They have TONS of HUGE fish tanks - both reef and freshwater and have just started a FW Planted earlier in the year.
Definitely will be worth the visit.
We'll also have an auction too!
Joe
