Hello everyone!

Howdy all! I am new! are SOME or my tanks!
First off my 72 gallon.. here are some timeline pictures.






anyway, I took a hit and found out I did not have a good enough WPG and lost allot of plant life... to algae and just plain death or shrinkage.. Here si the result.



here are some things that have gotten really nice looking since I added more light.





Cories hiding underneath cory rock!


True SAE and black neon shoal pioneeir (1 of three)



Here is my goldfish! it also did not have enough lighting! haha so it looks like crap as well! oh my xd




here is my 15 gallon eclipse! it is heavily modified by me! totally new light system... which gives it 2.7 WPG. I recently replaced the substrate with fluorite! it is currently acting as a plant repair tank to try and get those "almost dead" plants from when I had too little light to be big enough to place back in the 72 gallon and goldfish tank. so far so good..


I have a 29 gallon but it is such a mess right now.. I might be getting another 29 gallon!


P.S. anyone have some Ricca I can have/buy? I have been wanting some latly.. also, what Kelvin bulbs should I get for my new lights? They are t-8 32 watt.. should i get all 18k Kelvin (aqua-glo) or a mix? marine maybe?

tanks will mature with time and patience and work and stuff lol....

as for lighting you normally want between 5,000k and 10,000k which is optimal for plant growth anythin else is un useable light.

good luck and welcome!

okay.. picturews witrh aqua soil.. still have a constant of 4ppm.. I am begining to think it is a fake level.. My fish wouold certainly be dead or looked stressed. not lookign for food. my Cories barbels would totally be eatten away by now and the blakc neons would be dead. Also, Prime doe snot remove it where as it usually zaps NH4 completely. also, i have done water changes and the level still reads 4 even thoguh it should be 2ppm after a water change.

anyway pictures...
