55g redesign, Angel tank.

Hey guys. My 55 used to be a java moss farm, but I moved all the fish to my 135 a few months ago, so i decided to do something a little different. This is what the layout looked like when I first did it.


After it cleared up, and I got a new light bulb...I'm waiting on my 48" PC Aqualight(130watt) should be here next week. I got 6 baby Angels, 6 Paleatus Corys, Jungle Val, Wysteria, and I'm not sure what else. Here are some current pics(I'll update next week for the light and possible Co2.



Right side


Left Side


Angels


Corys


They Loooooooooooooove the sand, and slopes


More Angels





Enjoy, questions, comments put em up!

125g semi planted. 2 silver angels, 14 silver tips, 16 white fin ornatus tetras, pair of Nicaraguense, pair of nototus severums, trio of firemouth cichlids. 2 FX5s, 1 1500gph circ pump, 2 48" LED lighs, and a HUGE piece of driftwood.

650g fish room. 15 30g tanks, 150g sump.

Well, when I was taking out the old gravel, I made a big mound in the middle left side so I could syphon the rest of the water out of the right side. I walked away, came back and thought that it looked interesting. Figured I'd try it out...tired of just flat, or sloped(front to back etc) substrates. I liked the one mid lower, and the higher side. I was thinking of high on both sides and do a valley but figured I liked the unsymmetrical look about it.

MY angels in my 55 love amazon swords. I'd suggest a small field on side. They use the leaves to lay eggs on.

Great looking tank.
