New house, new 15g tank
Moved from a studio to a 2 bedroom house so thought it was time to set up a tank. Technically I bought most of everything before I knew we were moving and then was halted for a month but same same.
So far equipment wise I have:
15g rim tank (with frosted background)
Stainless steel in/out flow pipes with surface skimmer
10lb co2 tank (been in storage for like 5 years from my 75g tank tear down)
GLA pro co2 regulator and bubble counter
Finnex planted+ LED light
ADA aqua soil powder and amazonia
Yamaya stone from AFA
Branch wood from AFA
Need to get a test kit to check water parameters as I've moved just a couple counties south of the city.
Also due to Covid the only set back I have now is sourcing plants locally. Typically I would go to AFA in SF but they've been out of stock online and I'm not sure if they have normal in-store hours yet. Will have to check for a store even closer unless I want to make an hour trip each time to AFA.
Lastly, I'm debating changing direction layout wise. The new place has huge bright windows west/east so it's practically always sunny and I have a feeling with my finnex and these windows I'm going to have algae problems. Not a big deal, just need to regroup design now and possibly consider algae eaters.
So for now some pics! This is in no way a layout concept, just wanted to soak the branch wood and get the filters going so it didn't look so sad in the corner.
