15 gallon from "across the pond"

here's a pic of my little 30 x 15 x 12 tank. I felt a little bit intimidated putting it among all the superb tanks i see on here....so here it is.

Lighting....3 x 20 w triplus tubes on for 8 hours a day
Substrate...1" of tetra complete with 1.5" coarse black sand on top
CO2....yes, done manually with a cannister (soon to have pressurised CO2)
Heating....78 F
Filter....interpet 3 internal
Water....25% RO, 75% tap water
Decor...bogwood

Plants....Rotala indica, Heteranthera zosterifolia, Red lugwigia, twisted vallis, crypt sp, Anubias sp.

Fish....55 cardinal tetras, 3 panda cories, 3 amano shrimp, 1 otocinclus.


With the plants, the twisted vallis on the left is coming out as it hides the lovely pink rotala and will probably be replaced with saggitaria nantans. One of the smaller chain swords will go in front of the wood too.

Hope you like it.

Nice.
I agree with jinx, the vals are hiding the rotala (?), and can hide the equipment.

Wow 55 cardinals in a 15 gallon? Little over stocked but it looks great.

yeah that's a lot of fish, espescially later when they're got big. the tank is beautiful and colourful. i agree with some valls covering the equipments.
