92g Corner Bowfront, recently started (56k)

We have had this tank for awhile, but never had a chance to set it up. Now that we have moved, we finally have a place and use for it.

Specs:
Lighting: 96w compact fluorescent
Ferts: None at this time
CO2: None at this time
Substrate: SoilMaster Select
Plants: A bunch of crypts and anubias plus some java ferns and java moss. A little bit of peacock moss too I believe. Also some dwarf sag which found its way in in some used substrate.
Fish: A school of rummynose tetras, a school of cardinal tetras, 4 peppered cories, 6 assorted discus (the runts from our discus tanks...)

Because of the shape of this tank, it is somewhat difficult to light. A three foot light fits nicely across but leaves the front and back unlit. For this reason, we decided to go with low light plants in the tank. We do have an extra CO2 tank and regulator, we're just not sure whether or not it is really necessary to use in this tank with low lighting.

A view of the whole tank. It looks kind of bare...will be a long wait for it to grow in. I realize some things will probably need to be moved around...


Some action shots of the fish Also, the snail graveyard. I think the cories eat them.


I just started tying things down to the wood...probably not the best course of action.


I'm going to guess and say that this is a crypt wendtii bronze...


Lastly, a tangle of java ferns and java moss that used to be in our 72g bowfront. They just sat in there, waiting for a better home...
