I been waiting for this day for way too long but it's finally here, my 55g tank is up and running! It's a good thing too because once the new addition to the family comes in January I doubt I would be able to set it up.
Now a little info on the tank with some pictures!
The tank: 55g
Lights: Coralife 48" 2x65w
Substrate: Mineralized Top Soil toped with Ceramaquarts T-Grade, about 60lb+ of it.
Filter: AquaClear 110
Hygrophila sp. 'Tiger' or 'Bold'- not sure
The list probably will grow, but this is what I have now and it will be added as soon as the water clears up
Crown Tail Betta
Rummy nose tetras
The rest are not decided yet, and maybe my CPDs will call it home
More pictures on the last page
Getting ready to add MTS... I sprinkled some clay on top and mixed the rest with soil...
The rest of process got very very messy so no pictures of that but this is the end result
It also took me a long time because being 8 months pregnant makes it a bit difficult.
The tank was filled up yesterday night and it still very cloudy...
For some reason it looks even more cloudy to me now than yesterday... maybe it's just me....
How long does it usually take for a 55g tank to clear up?
