finally get to join the ranks here... not completely done setting this up. waiting on some pvc cement to dry completely before hooking up the cascade 1200 and co2 tank.
currently have a marineland 250 magnum hanging on the front to get the water circulating and to fight any tannins leaching from the wood. i've had this wood for over a year now and it leaches every single time... hoping the micron filter handles things. i'll continue to run it once the canister is set up, just on the opposite side.
right now we've got three guppies in there... the g/f wanted a "toy" so picked up a little 1.5g tank from walmart. she was over that in the morning
so the guppies i got her are in the 55g while my remaining cichlid is hanging out in that before going to the lfs in the morning.
anyway, you've probably done what i usually do and skip right past the chit chat to the pics
cell phone pics will have to do for today.
plant list is from a recent sale here, and i gotta be honest that i don't 100% know which is which haha, i mainly planted based on the size of the clippings:
Rotala macranda sp 'Japan Red'
Rotala sp 'Gia Lai'
Limnophila sp 'Wavy'
Hygrophila sp 'Tiger'
Proserpinaca palustris 'Cuba'
Myriophyllum heterophyllum X laxum
Limnophila sp 'Broad'
Limnophila sp 'Vietnam Mini'
Pogostemon sp 'Blume'
Staurogyne sp 'Porto Velho'
Limnophila repens 'Mini'
Hygrophila sp 'Bold'
i intend on letting the tank over grow a bit and fill out before trimming... assuming everything lives just fine. fingers crossed
