So this is my first post on here, thought I would share my tank.
I had a 10 gal planted that I played with for a year and a half. Found a deal on craigslist for a 55 so I decided it was time to upgrade.
Let me know what you think!
Hardness- 3 degrees (the damn flora base keeps this LOW...have to add alkaline buffer to keep it above 2)
DIY co2 with powerhead reactor
2/65w compact florescent lights
Plants- Cobomba, Amazon Sword, Narrowleaf Chain Sword, Stargrass, some Anubius on the wood, and an unidentified lily pad like plant
When I first got it, it was a mess as you can see. Was home to a common pleco and a single rainbow fish whom I was able to bring to my lfs.
Some playing around with the hardscape after breaking it down.
This was the first arrangement with the plants out of my 10 gal.
Ordered a bunch of plants....perhaps too much
Cut down on the plants a bit.
The final and current arrangement.
My mystery apisto....have not been able to properly identify.
There is a school of 8 marble hatchets. These are neat fish but I will likely replace them with something a little more active and curious like tetras because they are very timid and don't add much to the tank.
Pair of German Blue Rams. The Apistos are bullying the Rams so they will probably go back to lfs or into the 10 gal.
3 angels.....they are probably gonna go as well... I like them alot but they are only going to get bigger and are already messing with all the other fish.
Pair of Apistogramma Cacatuoides
The male displaying for the camera
Clown Face Pleco
