33g northern native theme low tech

hi first what im workin with

33 gallon main tank 36x18x12
tetra whisper40i and air pump
perfect-a-hood
lot of hornwort anchored trying to root, 2 anacharis, 3 unknown
largemouth bass(hank) , brown bullhead(billy), common pleco(dart), 1 or 2 crayfish that didnt get eaten, bunch of zebra muscles
rocks, sand, anacharis, zebra muscles, and water from the erie canal
fish from a private pond
crayfish from a vending machine
pleco rescued from next door
zebra muscles came free with the rocks
flourish excel daily
no co2


10 gallon feeder tank 18x18x12?
crappy filter and light does the job
airstone
floating hornwort
10-20 dipper net caught fish every couple days in summer, 50+ baitshop fish thru the winter every month or so
fish are always coming and going as its a feeder tank
minnows and sunfish 3 inches max bass is only 7
same as main tank but no sand going to use gravel from canal no flourish excel


tanks been cycled and runing for a while only problem really is a lil bit of algea. put down sand planted plants and capped with pebbles only around plants. rebiulding main tank in a couple weeks, cuz the canal drains in the winter. i want get rid of all rocks with no muscles and replace with some real nice thin flat slate rocks. biuld some castles or something. i dont know what kind of plants ill find out there this year usualy crap, but i did find a small Anacharis in some shallow water the other day. im goin to post some pics once a week maybe if i can.

All three of those fish will quickly outgrow that tank. Nice looking tank though!

How did you come to own a large mouth bass in an aquarium? That's both strange & cool. What water params are best for a LMB?

And what does Northern Native Theme consist of?

a native theme is as simple as going outside pullin something out of the water and throw it right in the tank. i knew somebody who was draining there private pond to make it bigger so i grabbed the smallest bass and 3 bullheads. put them in a 20g in about 2 weeks the 2 smaller bullheads got eaten the last one is now almost the size of my pleco. ph was high in the pond so i tryed to match that. temp is always low 70s. high 60s if i leave a window open. all the tech stuff is in the link below. im gonna try to post some more pics now.
