CryptKeeper54's Eheim Aquastyle 6 (now a shrimp tank - skip to pg.4)

Trying to get back in the scene. Was really heavy into planted tanks in 2004. My one year old daughter has shown an interest in fish and aquariums so I thought it would be a great excuse to spend money on rejuvinating my interest in the hobby. Anyways, here is my tank. Gonna try the DSM with HC, Styrogyne, and a downoi. FYI: New to the forum so if my posts don't look right, that's because I'm an noob. Still trying to learn how to post pictures that are visible in the thread instead of using attached images.

Eheim Aquastyle 6: Eco-complete, malaysian driftwood, rocks (forgot the name). Current photoperiod: 10 hours.

Name of my tank artwork: "I've got wood."

Comments and suggestions welcomed.

That is a very good start.
Get a free account at photobucket then you will be able to post pictures in the body.

Thanks 2in10.

Tank DOB: 4/13/12

Running into white mold issues. Trying hydroperoxide treatment. Can my HC survive?

Where is the mold? I would probably leave it for now if it isn't bad instead of putting the peroxide in there. Any runoff goes into the soil. Try to air out the tank a bit.

Hard to see in pic... but its there. Growing on my drifwood too. I keep hearing and reading conflicting DSM styles and results.

Side note... I ordered another eheim aquastyle 6 from Amazon cause this is a great, quality kit. Very happy with it and the LED is cool looking. Also, just finished my future cichlid tank. Off topic but wanted to post this pic:-)

Update: 4/25

Hoping HC will bounce back. Planted crypt lutea and some e.belem. (big thanks to TPT member bsk for the belem). Will post updated pic soon.



New tank arrived: born date 4/25
Planted: Glosso, e.belem and will plant b.japonica in right back corner.



I think I may just buy one more tank to add this other Ohko stone and make a nice trio of tanks.

Its official, I've been bitten by the planted tank bug. I don't want another aquastyle tank, I NEED another aquastyle tank.

Got my third tank today. Decided to use all sand for substrate (had some left from my cichlid tank). Thinking of making this a carpeted riccia or java moss tank. Another idea is I may just put in anubias nana and call it a day. I really want to highlight the ohko stone somehow cause I think they look cool. Decisions, decisions.. what to do?

Scaped third tank with anubias and moss. Would love to use nana petite only for this tank and cover the whole ground, but I didn't realize the cost so much....



Update and rescape: remove auberti and added HM. I think it will be better scale wise.



All three, makes me happy:

Thinking of rescaping and making this a riccia tank. Maintanence will be difficult but woth it IMO. The anubias idea just doesn't look right to me, throws the scale off. Gonna throw these anubias in my cichlid tank. Going to research and most likely buy my CO2 setup from GLA.

Decided to stick with anubia themed tank. Scale is off but gives me a chance to learn about anubias growth pattern. I just love the look of this ohko stone... wish I complimented it better.

Just had an epiphany. Old pic but I have named my art, from left to right: 1) Ohko Pretty 1, 2) I've Got Wood, 3) Ohko Pretty 2.
