I made an account ages go however forgot I even made one and have not used this forum so I guess you could say, I am a complete noob
Here is one of my 3 tanks I am keeping at the moment.
Here is my new addition to the tank list
3 x 18 x 20
Frazer Island Sand
1 x Aqua One Aquis Advanced 1050
1 x Aqua One Aquis 1200
Both filters soon to be replaced with just the one Eheim 2217 that is currently running in the tank
1 x ANS iFlo Filtration Set 17mm Lillypipes (to be put in there soon)
1 x Hagen GLO Twin T5 HO light unit.
2 x Hagen GLO Tubes
1 x Aqua One 300W Heater, To be Upgraded to a Hydor Inline heater as soon as they become available.
Melaleuca (have about 6 more pieces to use from as well that can easily be put in at any stage that are all three foot full pieces as this scape only uses 1)
Indian Almond Leaves and peat layer (yet to be a full layer throughout the substrate)
8 x Corydoras Melini
7 x Corydoras Atropersonatus
2 x Apistogramma Trifasciatus (breeding pair)
20 x Lemon Tetras
Soon to put in 15 x Dwarf Pencilfish and replace the lemon tetras
The aim is to get a rio nanay/tigre biotope where both of my corydoras are from, however the apistogrammas I am unsure about? But could not pass up such a beautiful breeding pair. Will hopefully be putting in some apistogrammas that relate to this area if the trifasciatus arent from this specific area.
Some small changes need to be made to the scape as such, including more low lying wood from the wood I still have spare (6 3 foot pieces I can cut up and use) and give them more of a "hut" style layout. I am still playin around with the scape as such and getting it right but the fish are loving the environment and the very low pH
First thing is first (which I know many will comment on instantly) is the hydor inline heater needs to go in the tank ASAP as the sight of this ugly aqua one heater is just ruining the scape. And also I need to be a better photographer so I can really show what the aquascape is like rather than my dodgey pics. Will update once more wood is added and it is more "filled out" on the bottom with more of a nest of wood throughout whole bottom.
