gotwins86's 75 Gallon

Figured I would start a journal for my 75 Gallon. Plan on more of a low tech setup. After having it set up as a saltwater tank I decided to tear it down and go planted. I have a neglected 29 gallon planted tank that I will transfer to the 75. Have sold off most of my saltwater equip and have new stuff ordered. Hope to set it up next week.

Here is what I have planned.

75 Gallon Tank
2 x SunSun HW-302
1 x Koralia Nano 240 - Have it laying around will use if needed.
48" Fugeray
300W Hydor ETH In-Line Heater

Substrate: Black Diamond with root tabs

I ordered some manzanita driftwood and have some petrified wood.

Low light plants.

1 Pearl Gourami
3 German Blue Rams
3 German Gold Rams
15 Cardinal Tetras
6 Dwarf Rainbow
8 Schwartz Corys

Here is the negleted 29.

Well I got it set up this weekend. Took the filter media from the 29 and threw it in the canister filters and I am dosing with Seacham Stability. So hopefully the cycle will only take about a week. If I go through a cycle at all. Nevermind the 2 heaters in there now. They will come out once the inline heater gets here. Apparently when Free Shipping says 5-8 business days, they really mean 8 business days...

Hope to get some plants ordered next month looks kind of bare right now. Manzanita is still floating. Thoughts? Suggestions?

Some people anchor their DW down with a rock or something of similar weight! That may be an option...

I literally love my aquarium(s).
