My 2 tanks......learning slowly.

Here are my two tanks

8 gallon finnex tank
2 HOB filters
pressurized CO2 24hrs/day
7wpg 8hours/day
ADA Green Brighty step 2 every 3 days




Whats wrong with my hairgrass? I can get it to spread...thats not a problem but its not growing "green".




7 gallon long super random scape
10wpg
no ferts...no CO2

I basically threw a bunch of stuff in there randomly without much thought to scape.
Plants include:
random R. indica
random java moss
random hairgrass
3 random blyxa japonica
super random fissidens tree on the right





My aquasoil looks funny. It looks as though it is melted or something. Whats the deal? Other than that, this tank is pretty low maintenance.




How the tanks sit in my room with all the equipment

What are the dimensions on that 7 gallon? I love long and low tanks. Both are beautiful!

The 10 gallon looks alright, but I really like the 7. What are the dimensions of each?

Tanks look nice, but the whole aquarium on a filing cabinet, other on a low table, big CO2 tank in front... it's a touch on the ghetto side.

The 7 long is actually 6.6 gallons. Its 24" long, 8" high and 7" deep. the coralife is 24" 65w. so its about 10 wpg. Algae is a problem but doesnt bother me much and the shrimps love it. I just clean the front of the tank with a toothbrush.

Canoe, I have limited space in my room so ghetto is the only option and thats the way I rollllll jk. anyways, the finnex 8 gallon is 16" x 8" x 12" or so.
