eds 30

My other photo thread was mostly about my 55, so I figured I'd start a seperate one for my 30.

Here's what it looked like a couple of months ago:

I collected this wood, but I think it was giving me BBA problems.
So I replaced it with a piece of bogwood.

Here it is now.

I only boiled the bogwood briefly because I wanted to keep some tannins for my turquoise rainbows.
So the water is quite dark.

The tank is low-light with DIY CO2.
I'm going mostly with crypts and anubias - in fact, I just picked up c. lutea and ciliata from a fish show, so I'm probably going to pull all of the hygro from the back left.

Inhabitants include:
3 turquoise rainbows
1 F blue ram (I've lost 2 Males)
2 julii corys
5 otos
5 glow-light tetras
several Endlers
1 albino bristlenose

annubias congensis
a. barteri
a. nana
a. nana petite
a. gigantea
a. coffefolia
crypt wendtii
c. balensae
c. navilli
c. ciliata
c. lutea
pogo. wrightii
dwarf sag
red sunset hygro
corkscrew val

(I'll eventually be removing the bottom 4)

I'll post another pic after I plant my new crypts.
On preview, the pics look crappier than I had thought - tho the lighting is pretty low and uneven.
I'll try to work on my photo skills as well.
