my 30 gallon updated

here some pics I just took after some trimming, moving around, and removing a sword in the back. I also replaced my crappy hagen diffuser with a glass diffuser. I also added a 10 gallon growout were I put my trimmings and get ready to sell them. Let me know if you want anything.


full tank shot...



growout tank specs:
-10 gallon tank 20x10x12
-45 watts NO lighting
-2 hagen co2 systems
-penguin mini
-flourite gravel

here's a pic(the elodea is in there because I started the tank a little bit ago and I didnt want much of an algae cycle, which was suprisingly only 1 day!)




Let me know what you think!

Very nice. The first aquarium is gorgeous and the grow out looks really, really healthy!

Better let me know what you are growing out. I might want to place an order!

thanks for the replies guys! As for my fish currently I have 5 Pseudomugil furcata,1 german blue ram, 5 rummynose tetras,3 cories, and 2 ottos. As for the grow out tank I only have mostly fastgrowers now like ludwigia repens, rotala indica and macranda, hygrophila, crypts, elodea, and some stargrass.

Momotaro- yea they look really good in there but it is really hard for me to get a decent pic of them. They move really fast. I'll try to get a picture of them tommorrow when the lights are on.

thanks for the responses guys. I'm wondering if anyone has any aquascaping suggestions for me?
