yoink's tanks (lots of pics)

It has been awhile since I've posted any new pics of my tanks. Don't mind those with dirty glass, I like to leave a little for the critters to munch on.

10g #1


10g #2


10g #3


10g #4


10g #5


10g #6, more plants behind the giant pile of moss


All the 10's, all lined up


5g


75g, still relatively new. I had to cut back a lot of stuff that was covered with BBA


20H


10g Paludarium


Here are some fish pictures that turned out OK.

Bronze cory


Three-lined cory


Female ram, not sure why the blue appears to be glowing


Male ram


Geophagus steindachneri, a little one


Mr. ecco


Locke


Kate


Thanks for looking.

Actually I do enjoy WC's now that I've built a DC water changer, takes less than an hour to change all of those.

10g 1,4,5,6, and the paludarium use 2x20w screw in CF's
10g 2 has 2x15w flourescents
10g 3 has 1x65w PC
5g has 1x20w screw in CF
20g has 2x65w PC, but I only use one
75g has 4x65w PC

They are the incandescent hoods that hold two bulbs, came with the standard 10 gallon kit along with a marineland HOB filter. The DIY co2 is in a juicy juice bottle and fed into the filter intake via a limewood airstone.

Black obsidian. It is really shiny until it gets some algae/biofilm on it. I love the black neons too. I'm trying to get about ten more for a total of thirty, but the stock around here isn't very good lately. I'm still in Indiana too.

Thanks for the comments.

Man I like the 20H!


All those tanks lined up like that is pretty awesome! I have a problem with wanting to stuff my tanks full of plants and multiple 10g's would probably fix that and look good at the same time!

FUNction over form

Do you use a single CO2 bottle and a manifold or separate systems for each?

I love lost too . Beautiful tanks, love your rams, cories, angels.

AND another compliment for your 20H. It looks like a great tank for a few apistos or something. What's in there now?
