Hey guys. Haven’t been on here for a while, but I’m starting on my first project that isn’t a nano tank, and I’m super excited. So I wanted to journal my tank. If anybody would like to leave any tips / tricks / criticism they’re more than welcome to!
It’s a 20Long aquarium, I’ve got a Fluval Aquaclear 20 on the right side, and a Fluval Aquaclear 70 on the left side. A later to be replaced Tetra 30 heater, a digital thermometer (I’ve got 6 of these, all of them read accurately.) and an Aqueon Optibright lightbar.
The first few additions to the inside of the tank; 16Lbs of Fluval Stratum Subtrate, a “TopFin” driftwood piece, purchased from Petsmart, which will remain bare, two Cedar Root clumps, one with Java moss, and the other with Windelov Java Fern. Wood & Moss Purchased from my LFS, Java fern was home grown in a different tank. And two large pieces of Ohko Dragonstone, totalling 11lbs, also from the LFS. Probably going to do a dry start considering the plants I have on order;
Nympoides Hygrophila “Taiwan”
Red Tiger Lotus
Cryptocoryne Undulata in Red
5 different Miniclumps of Varius Buceplants
Several Anubias Nana Petite
Probably going to cycle the tank with Ramshorns, but I would prefer not to use the Brown ones we get at work that I use for feeders, if anybody has some reds / blues, let me know 🙂
My name is Zaximus the Zensational and I am most likely better than you.
