Bigstick120's 29 Gallon Update 7-11-10

I just set this tank up
29 Gallon
Eco substrate
XP1
Corallife 65 Watt CF
DIY CO2/Hagen Ladder

I was able to get it planted and this is my first attempt at an aquascape. I'll let it fill in a see where it goes from there. I aquaried some great plants at my GWAPA meeting this past weekend as well as some new found knowledge. I need a foreground to fill in the empty void. I think I may move the driftwood forawrd a little bit. Let me know what I can do to improve the scape. Thanks

Looks like a good start. Is your 55g tank anywhere near the 29g? If it is, you would easily rig up your pressurized setup to feed both tanks.

No its in the dining room and this is in the den. I would have to run about 40-5o ft of line through the living room to do that. That would be nice though. Its DIY for now

John I'm getting about 1bps and its been running for about 2 weeks.

Thanks for the comments

A little update here
I am enjoying the direction that my tank is taking. I snapped a few photos a little while ago and thought I would share. I also enjoy playing around with my camera, which I seldom do and dont know why.







Limnophila aromatica







I'm open to suggestions, I think I may move the
Pogostemon stellata to the right beside the Limnophila aromatica and move the Bacopa to the right

Looks like you're a natural at growing plants there Jeff.

Wow, your tank is looking more beautiful as time passes. What is that red plant near the center in the front?
