Aubie's 54 gallon corner journal
Finally ready to start putting this tank together after a few months of planing and slowing accumulating equipment and experience (to the benefit and sometimes detriment of my existing tanks). Still have some equipment yet to purchase and assemble.
Tank: Aqueon 54 gallon corner with pine stand
Filter: 2 Eheim Pro4e 350
Lights: 2 Ai HD Prime Freshwater
CO2 injection (haven't bought the regulator yet, but will probably get a 2 stage off fleabay and the post-reg kit from DIYCO2)
Not sure if I'll go the diffuser or reactor route for CO2
Heater: probably an inline Hydor hooked up to an inkbird controller
Ferts: PPS-Pro, probably starting with the high light dosing regimen and backing off if needed, Seachem root tabs for root feeding
Hardscape: ohko stone and driftwood
Substrate: not quite sure, something dark. Maybe Flourite Black Sand.
Water: am currently using a RO/DI unit I purchased off amazon, but will probably upgrade to one from bulk reef supply.
Flora: multiple species/strains of buce and anubias, fissidens and riccia, bolbitis, crypt lucens, balansae, nd wendtii, cyperus helferi, e. xinguensis, blyxa japonica, eleocharis parvula (or belem), m. crenata (or minuta), and possibly some s. subulata
Fauna: cpds, spotted blue eyed rainbows, peacock gudgeons, dainty corys, dwarf gourami, amanos, snails. May eventually add a couple of bamboo shrimp.
Both the flora and fauna stockings are fluid and might change.
Current planned aquascape (any comments, suggestions, or critiques appreciated):
