My "20 gallong"
I originally set this tank up about 9 months ago in late June. It was very bad timing however because I abruptly moved away to school at the end of August. The tank was doing great while it was under my supervision, but when I left, I left my parents in charge. I planned to bring it with me to school the next time I visited home, and I didn't think it would be a big deal leaving it in there care for a few weeks. I came home months later, the tank looked great and had grown a lot, but I was feeling too lazy to make the three hour transport. More time went by, I came home again, and this time the tank was choked with a very fine light green algae. The light had been getting left on for too long and the CO2 system was no longer working. I decided that in order to salvage the tank I must bring it with me to school. So... long epic story short, I made the transport. I did this yesterday by myself, and it took me all day. Since the algae outbreak I've cleaned the tank, set the lights properly with a timer, and refilled the CO2 tank. I currently have a pair of mollies with 3 babies, and 3 red cherry shrimp living in the tank. I'm hoping to lose the mollies and add some unique guppies here in the next few weeks.
Here is what I'm using with this tank:
65w power compact light
Ehiem 2213 filter
Awesome driftwood that I found cheap on ebay
Red Sea 500 CO2 system
Half amazonia 2 and half fluorite gravel (90-100% Amazonia 2 used in front where HC and dwarf clovers are growing)
I occasionally dose with small amounts of seachem flourish
