I've posted a couple of pictures in the low tech forum but now that I'm pretty much done with buying plants and fish (unless I find a deal on a 90 gallon
) I thought a beginning to end photo journal would be good to have in the photo album.
I upgraded from a plastic plant 55 gallon community to:
Oceanic 72 Gallon Bowfront - Open top
Coralife 2x65 watt 10,000K
1" of flourite under Silica Sand
Fluval 405 with spraybar
Aquaclear 70 H.O.B. filter
I don't use ferts or C02. The lights are on 12 hours a day.
I do a 20% water change almost daily (I skip sometimes) and a 40% once a week.
I don't know all the names of the plants because I got them over time from a few different stores.
Bunch of different Swords
an onion plant
some sort of moss I tied to the driftwood
And pushing the limits of the bio
4 Juvinelle Discus - 1 Turqouise, 1 red Turq, 1 Fuji Red, 1 Marlboro Red
3 Adult Discus - 1 Leopard Spotted - 1 Solid Blue - 1 Pigeon Blood
2 Rummynose Tetras
3 Cardinal Tetras
2 Clown Loaches
5 Rosy Barbs (left over from the community tank and my wife likes em)
This place has been very helpful and the pictures are incredible! Thanks for all the information guys and gals!
