40b community

Hey guys,

I've been out of planted tanks since 2011. I've finally be able to set the 40b back up. It's been up since April but has for through many changes.





Things are still getting there as I'm currently dealing with green hair and green dust algae.


- 40 breeder tank
- Finnex Fugeray 2 light
- Fluval 306 with eBay lily pipes
- 5lbs CO2 tank with U.P. Aqua regulator
- Rhinox CO2 diffuser
- Hydor inline heater

- DHG Belem
- Red Tiger Lotus
- Some type of Rotala
- Blyxa Japonica
- Microsecond
- Glosso
- Needle leaf Java fern
- anubias nana petite


- Pair of Apisto Macmasteri
- 8 Rummynose Tetras
- 7 Cardinal Tetras
- Pair of threadfin Rainbow fish
- Pair of Boesmani Rainbowfish
- Pair of Madagascar Rainbowfish
- 2 Yoyo Loachs
- 2 Hillstream loachs
- 2 pygmy Corrys
- 3 Denision Barbs
- 4 nitrite snails
- 3 among shrimp
- 4 tetras I can't recall the name of. Any ideas?

I know it sounds overcrowded, but everyone seems to be happy and not showing any signs of stress. Thanks for looking. Any suggestions are really appreciated, specially dealing with algae.

Nice tank! Those tetras are known as Bentos Tetras. They are typically labeled as the Candy Cane Tetra in fish stores. Hardy, hardy fish.
