Im planning on adding a CO2 system to this aquarium within the next couple weeks..
Im running a couple of Tidal hob filters, and a pair of 160gph Marineland cannisters with a 9w Coral Life UV running through one of the cannisters.
3 Nicrew 18w
3 aqueon optibright
Im using 2 heaters, the tank stays at 76 and when the lights are on the temp rises to 80
My lights go on for 5 hrs of the day and then its darkness.. any longer and algea begins to grow rapidly. Im hoping that the CO2 will allow me to keep my lights on for twice as long..
Overall with lusher plants and longer day Cycles im hoping to get more activity out of my fish.
Inhabiting the tank are 5 red belly piranhas,1 red tail Barracuda, 1 pumpkin seed crappie, nerite snails, assassin snails, micro clams, 2 panther crabs
