Ok, so I have this tank for about six months now. I swapped everything out of my 29G when I purchased it. I also bought a 2x39W T5HO light.
It has been basically emptied/filled twice since setting it up. Both times were to move it (once across town the other to the new stand).
Basically I see all these beautiful tanks, and although I enjoy mine I just see no symmetry to it.
I would really like some guidance and aquascaping advice. I'm willing to listen to all criticism and what members here think I should do.
Here is the breakdown of equipment, plants, and fish:
40 Gallon Breeder
Aquatic Life 2x39W T5HO w/ 10K Bulbs (LFS would only trade out the actnic for a 10K, no 6700k.
Eheim 2028 Filter
Hydor Eth 300W Heater
Paintball Co2 w/ Ceramic Glass Diffuser
1x Anubius Barteri
2x Anubius Nana
2x Dwarf Red Tiger Lilly
1x Argentine Swords (trying to grow out of the tank)
1x Amazon Sword
Both Christmas and Taiwan Moss
Unkown red plant
Currently for hardscape I have 2 pieces of driftwood and a bunch of slate made into caves.
14 x Cardinal Tetra
8 x Black Neon Tetra
2 x Yoyo Loaches
3 or 4 x Otocinclus
1 x Panda Cory (yes I know he needs friend but at $6.00 each.... And the LFS has been out the last two times I had money)
