Thought id share with you all my latest planted tank venture (you lucky lucky peple
I had this tank sitting empty for a while wondering what to do with it then my angels began spawning in my 98gal discus tank so the logical thing seemed to be refill the 54gal and put the angels in it.
I started by mixing a bag of regular flourite with a bag of red and around 8kg of black gravel from another tank (which i was emptying).
Once filled i fitted my fluval 305 complete with bio media from the 98gal.
Planting was next up once water params were stable, lots of swords and grasses with a few stemmed plants for height (i don't do plant names
Once the planting was sorted and ready for fish the Fluval 205 was added from the old tank.
Then for fish! One pair of mated Koi Angels, 1 Opeline Gourami and 1 Golden, 10 X-ray Tetra and 1 neon, 1 pair mated Kribensis with 3 month old fry, 1 Spotted Dora and 1 Striped, 2 Amano Shrimp.
Hope you all think it looks as good as i do, im not biased....much
