The main tank has now been moved into the "fish room" to be with all the other tanks.

Top: Breeding tank with free swimming angels (not intentional), Mid: Left Endlers, Right Gardeneri Aq. strain. Mid: Q tank with one nice angel and two male rams (aggressive) Lower: breeding pair of rams (my last female).



And to update the main tank. The loose plant on the left is Ammannia gracilis which I got in trade for Eichhornia diversifolia. I am still working on a better aquascape(hey look it grows is getting old). Any comments are always appreciated!

Overflow!?!

This is an idea I have been toying with for a few months. I have a 20L directly below a 30L. I'd like to know all you'd be willing to share re: your setup (if, infact, that's how you have it).

Very clean setup, btw. I really enjoyed these photos.

Looks good BR,

Have you at considered intermixing the two foreground plants instead of the current left/right seperation?

Unirdna:
The smaller 20 is the "sump" which I keep 3/4 full and grow plants in. The details are in post #14 on this thread:

https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...ad.php?t=12568

I also have a cheaper "overflow" using airline for waterchanges. Ie dump a gallon into the fry thak and it drains into a bucket on the floor.

Blade:
I am intrigued by your idea. The is chain sword flank (on the left) is constantly growing into the crypt forest (on the right). I will pull the massive chain sword nest in the middle and take it to the GSAS auction but you are right in that it is distracting. There is some adventurous Sag subulleta growing into the chain sword too. Note the common name of "dwarf Sag".

Hey Blueram! That's quite the setup you have there! I'm not sure how I missed this thread (this place is getting big!).

I love the fishroom. But I'm kind of bummed that you moved the main tank. It looks great, so I can't imagine why you would not want it out where people can see it. It's a thing of beauty. No? It seems like buying a lovely piece of art an putting it in the closet.

I dunno though, maybe you guys just hang out in the fishroom.

Great setup though! Kinda' makes me want a sump...

Thank you Betowess. Although the difference is trivial, the grass plants are actually Sag subulata (Dwarf Sag) but they are clearly not dwarf. I will bringing plenty of it with some chain sward and hydro to the plant auction on the 12th. if you are in the area.

Blade: I am reworking the mid ground. I am thinking pella on "Buck" rocks.

Scolley: A sump! Just what you need. Another body of water to build. I am waiting for your construction journal though as you tank will be exceptional.

Since the big tank is an overgrown mess (just acquired Ammanina and a crinium) I will instead post my newer Madagascar lace plant which looks like it is trying to flower (in the ram breeder).
