Nice looking tank, what are the dimensions? I was thinking to get myself 20 gallon long (and ofc shallow) as a next tank.
It is really beautiful and even holds water!
~24" x 16" x 16" (60x40x40cm)
If I knew how much the whole project would cost and also where I would end up putting the tank I would have opted for a tank that was more like 36 x 16 x 16 due to the nice proportions.
Still I am totally satisfied with the quality.
Bump: So I have changed my direction a bit. I was originally thinking of going Walstad but since I used CO2 before and had good results I have switched to stronger lighting and CO2.
Here is where I am now.
CO2Art Pro SE
kit. I did not want to piece together the CO2 setup even if it might have lasted longer than I will...
Current USA 24"-36" Satellite Plus PRO LED
with controller: I am not sure that I like the mounts. I really wanted pendant lights to give that halogen shimmer but my wife gets migraines. I still may look at other lighting since I have free returns from Amazon for a while.
OASE Indoor Aquatics Biomaster Thermo
: Nice filter that allows the thermometer to be located outside the tank. I am big on a clean, tech-free tank look. I got glass pipes to go with it and the CO2 will be inline...for now.
Rocks and wood are lined up but I may have made a bad choice on my driftwood. It is still soaking in our basement bathtub. Could take a while. I may need to find a more vertical position if it is still buoyant or just get something else. Looked great online :-)
Plants and fish TBD
. Probably Tetras, Cories, Ottos and Amano shrimp. Easy care plants to start with some fast growing ones to help with the early cycle phase. A few floaters also.
Substrate: That part made me crazy. I ordered some Fluval Stratum as a bottom layer with pool sand for the top and front.
Wish me luck!
