Soo Its been a while. I no longer have any of the tanks in my sig. All have been broken down and sold. I went thru a while of disinterest. I have torn down most of what I had except for my 100 gal and a 35 gal Hex. I no longer even mess with ferts. The lights are 1wpg. And tho I have CO2 piped in its shut off. I have the ferts and a full tank of CO2 I just don't want to deal with dosing. I all I do really is toss food in so the fish can eat. All the plants in this tank are the same ones that I still had from my 75gal. That giant sword broke up into 3.
Here is a short journey of what the tank has come to.
Back in 09 I made an attempt to set the tank up as a community tank.
But community tanks are freaking boring. So i lost interest pretty quickly.
and by 2010 it was just in maintain mode. Water changes happen in this tank maybe 2x a year. however water quality are not things that are really much concern.
Recently I decided to evict all the community fist to the 35gal. And I redecorated a bit. But I don't have much by way of algae defense so the walls got covered in the greens. I decided to scrape away that layer and this is what I found.
Here is a little closer up with some of the new tenants. African Cichlids.
Yep, doing a planted cichlid tank.
Isn't this little guy cute?
