Here we go. I've been keeping track of this tank for a couple month but have only finally come up with time to upload it all. It might take a few days, but I'll get it all up.
The tank was set up mid October with Seachem Fluorite
, CO2 injection at 4bps using red sea co2 reactor 500
, and kept at 76F. I loaded it with the plants you see in the picture and 35 different fish (4 Cory cats, 3 glass cats, 2 Yo-Yo loaches, 2 Clown loaches, 4 marble hatchet fish, 6 neon tetras, 4 guppies, 2 multi striped loaches, 2 mini dwarf loaches, 2 khuli loaches, 2 blue wood shrimp, 2 singapore shrimp, 1 snowball pleco, 3 siamese algae eaters, 1 long finned albino pleco, and 2 african dwarf frogs.) I've done many tanks so I figured I could watch the health of the fish and do weekly 50% water changes (more if needed) and baby them through the cycle process.
This first picture was taken Dec 10 but as you'll hear it's not much different than it looked mid October.
