So... I thought I'd post up my oldest tank. It's been running for almost 4 years since I moved to Portland. This tank never ran co2 or ferts at all until I began to redo it. It's always been under 130 watts of compact fluorescents.
It's home to:
Cardinals, rummynoses, marble hatchets
What do you think?
Yeah that's what I thought. This tank was so neglected it wasn't funny.
I began working on this tank in June.
06/11/2008 - took out all but one piece of driftwood (the one on the left completely covered in anubias.) Added the piece to the right which came from aqua forest. rearranged stuff
06/29/2008 - added ruby tetras, and sundadanio axelrodi red form, and badis badis...
7/9/2008 - so... what do you think of the end result?
Well... it doesn't matter because on saturday I took everything out of the tank except the fish.
The tear down and rebuild has begun. It's the first time i've removed the large driftwood to the left which is host to the anubias mother plant. This has been moved to my Tanganyikan tank. The nerites will go to town on the gsa on the leaves. . This Saturday I also netted out all of the cardinals and rummy noses and added them to my schools in my other tanks. I added Flame rasboras and Naked rasboras.
Pics of the rebuild coming very soon!
