After a 3 or 4 year hiatus from aquarium ownership, I got the itch again and took the plunge about 7 weeks ago. I wanted to keep it low/medium tech with less than average maintenance and dosing. I also wanted to upgrade from the 5.5 and 10g tanks of the past for better livestock options as well as parameter stability.

Tank and Equipment:

-Mr Aqua 32g rimless
-Hydor Professional 150
-Current Freshwater 18w LED+




-Marsilea minuta
-Stauro Repens
-Crypt Parva
-Anubias Nana Petite
-Rotala Rotundifolia
-Ludwigia Arcuata
-Anubias Nana
-Crypt Willisii
-Java Fern Narrow
-Java Fern Needle
-Fissidens Fontanus
-Crypt Wendtii Bronze


-6 nerite snails
-4 red cherry shrimp
-1 threadfin rainbow (last one at the LFS, had to give her a home)
-4 24k gold cloud minnows
-2 gold zebra loach

It's a work in progress, but here's some pictures from the beginningClick image for larger version
