I was going to write a novel about my background... but I will spare you guys.. here are the bullet points
- Have been keeping fish on and off for ~25 years (all freshwater)
- after about 7 years break I restarted last year and got wiped out (literally) by Harvey... lost house/cars etc. here is the thread https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/12...h-planted.html
- prior to that tried my first planted back in 2008... https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/8-...k-journal.html
So, now let's talk about this new tank that I am super excited about. It is a rimless 92 gallon with a 30 gallon sump (but I think there will only be about 15 gallons of actual water volume in the sump). I know sump is not necessary, but I hate the look of all the pipes and chords around tanks, so I went the built in overflow and sump route.
Equipment: 92G Versa Series 47.5" x 19.5" x 21.5" (total volume 124G)
Hardscape: Manzanita Branches, Rocks (lava or TBD
Substrate: Aquasoil and Sand
Plants: Anubias species various, java fern trident, others TBD
Confirmed: 9 Silver Angels (Pterophyllum scalare
), 18 Gold Tetras (Hemigrammus rodwayi
), Pair of Golder Dwarf Cichlid (Nannacara anomala
Planned: 20 Corys (type TBD
), 20 Marble Hatchetfish (Carnegiella strigata
) - yes, the tank will have a cover, 4 Bolivian Rams (Mikrogeophagus altispinosa)
, Pair of Yellow Convict (Archocentrus nanoluteus)
I am not a very patient person, I have decided I will challenge myself to be patient with this aquarium (we shall see). My goal is to make this a long term aquarium (at least 5 years running if not more), so I want to keep that in mind while stocking and planning. Pics to arrive slowly.
