22gl/80litre holding tank 01/04/06

This is my tank that i keep plants when i want to swap with the main tank.
2.5ft long 12"wide i think.
Eco-Complete substrate
Diy CO2 run through a power head
Lighting,I run 2 4ft tube's 54watt each i have over hang.
No fish
I'm hoping the back and side will be cover with Green algae,It's only halve way.

Looks good! For just a holding tank, it looks like a decent aquascape!

I like how you've just attached the CO2 tube to the powerhead outlet. Does that 'T' outlet come with the powerhead, or did you need to get it separately?

Thanks,It started to growing in so i thought i would try to scape a little.
The idea with the pump came from the disscusion thread from tom barrs to blow micro bubbles into the tank and it's working like a dream.
The pump is a weipro tc 500,600plh and it come's with the T piece and a few other bit's and peice's.

I have an algae wall to the top of my tank. I'll trade you it for a clean, clear wall . Actually, I kinda like your algae wall. And your tank is looking great!

I hate it when people post thier quarantine/holding tanks. "Oh . . . . just something I threw together" really grinds my gears when it looks so much better than any of my "non-holding" tanks!!!!

Keep up the great work! glad to hear the micro-bubble method is working for ya

Thanks
I would be lying if said i just chucked them in and hope for the best.
I did set it out With very little thought, foreground, mid ground, back ground,The problem is this tank is out back where no one can see it unless i take them to it,I am very happy with the tank,To bad i'm stripping it down slowly to fill my display tank

The display tank inside,The more i try the worse it get's,So now i have almost taken a back seat a let it do it's stuff hopefully it will come better than the so call holding tank.
