The EdTheEdge 15 (56K) - updated 01/01/2010

Got tired of this tank just being a grow out tank. It captured a lot of clippings from my other tanks and just got to be well..... have a look:


So I decided it was time to upgrade. I went pressurized. After 10+ years of DYI CO2. Yipee!!!!!!

Specs:
Hardware
15Gal Tall (20"W X 19"T X 10.5"W)
1X36watt CF and 1X18watt CF
Pressurized CO2
Eheim 2232

Substrate
100% Flourite

Plants
Lilaeopsis Brasiliensis
Lilaeopsis Carolinensis

Fish
None yet Would like to have this as a Tiger Barb tank. Not sure if that is feasible in such a small tank.

Pictures





Comments/Suggestions?

12/18/2008 - Yearly bulb change:
1X36 6700K to 10000K
1X18 6700K to 7100K

Nice and bright again! It will be interesting to see if the color change effects plant growth.

Apparently a Green Shrimp. I bought 10 Red Cherries and 5 Amano at a LFS and the green one hitched a ride along. I thought he might've been sick or something. But he's just green.

Hello,

Very nice tank you got there. I bought my first tank about 5 months ago (10 gallon) and I must say, this is a very rewarding hobby. About that green shrimp, It is actually called a "Dark Green Shrimp". Here is a link for the requirements for it: http://www.planetinverts.com/Green%20Shrimp.html

I love that moss!
