I just found this pic and it's what my tank originally looked like in May when I first set it up. Hard to believe the difference, bio wheel filter and all.
I let it grow out, changed the substrate (took the sand off the top) and removed the HOB filter and replaced it with a cannister.
So, here is the second incarnation. F305 cannister, diy CO2, diy hood w/ 4x T-8. 2 @ 6700K x 25 Watt, 2 @ 10,000K x 30 Watt. BBA was cleaning my clock so I upgraded to automated pressurized CO2. Here's the before.
I started trimming yesterday and went to PetSmart. Bought a few plants. Was just gonna add some and trim back the Wisteria that w/ the Amazon Sward was taking over, but TADAAAAAAA.........
Total makeover. Here are some more views....
Now, the Glasso carpet should fill in on the left pretty nicely. I'd like to get my hands on some dwarf hairgrass for the foreground on the right. Any sugestions are welcomed. I'm EI dosing w/ plantex micros and 50% w/c per week. I've been keeping fish for years but this is my first attempt in the planted realm. Brand new as of like May so any ideas or suggestions are welcome!!!!
Oh yeah, how the heck do you get pics to show up on the post rather then a link? I click insert image and cut and paste the web address from photobucket and only get a link on the screen.........lol
Figured it out............
