Pumpkinhead's 29g.

This is my newest creation and only my second "real" real planted tanks. This being my sophomore tank I still have a lot to learn,but with the help of fellow S.F.B.A.A.P.erS. and reading along on TPT I've learned a lot!

Criticism always welcome.....might I add,I'm no aquascaper and don't pretend to be,I just plant what I like,lol.

I'm no aquascaper either, but I think it looks pretty good.

Thank you all for the nice comments. This pic us a couple weeks old,things are filling in great! There's also some new additions. Ill try to get an updated pic up soon.

Don, you should come check it out sometime. Between my 5 setups you'd heve a nice take home bag I swear. Lol. I hate dumping the "trim" when I can't get rid of it quick enough.


Btw,a few specs...29gallon,pressurised co2,custom ei dosing (lmao),2◊24watt with 2hr burst from a third,about 32 fish (eeekk),shrimp,I'm sure there's more but? ??????

The pantanal has a pink/peach top which means that its happy with what you are doing. Is the Trithuria somewhere in this tank?

Yup,things are bouncing back nicely. I had to trim a lot off before planting but for the most part things are settling in. If the trithuria stays strong we just might have to work sumn else out again after all,lol. Thanx.

If the pantanal is happy then the trithuria will be just fine.
