im new to the forum, i recently set up a 65 gal freshwater planted aquarium. I've had freshwater/saltwater aquariums in the past but never a planted, so i thought id give it a try. So heres my journal
65 Gal Oceanic Tank with glass top
Rena XP 3 filter
Aquaclear 200 watt heater
Homemade Oak stand from 40 Gal Breeder Saltwater setup
Single T-8 fixture.(thinking of buying a Hagen Glo single T5HO or Double T5HO)
Start Date: April 13,2012
tank just waiting to my filled!
order 4 bags of eco-complete from petco. $17 a bag +free shipping, can't be beat.
tank being masked for the new black background.
the paint turned out nice! also plumbed to a XP 3
this was one bag of eco-complete, i put in 3 bags and was thinking about saving the last bag, but i quickly decided against that and dumped it in. i say 4 bags for a 36in tank is perfect
tank filled with water, and light just to see gravel. Also added pure ammonia to start cycle.
