As some of you may know. I bought the deal of the century on a 2nd 30 gallon cube. that in turn has caused me to spend a lot more $$$. I currently don't have an Iwagumi... and most of my tanks don't true hardscapes (African Cichlids don't count!). This is the tank to end all of that
I currently have ordered:
-Cube garden 60 H 24 x 12 x 18
-Garden mat 60 x 30
Garden stand – 60 Silver and Garden stand rack – 60 Metallic
Solar I arm right
-Music Glass – Mini 15D x1
-Poppy Glass PP-3 17D x 2
-Poppy Glass PV-3 17D x 2
I plan on using a smaller aluminum co2 canister to fit on the rack. I have an extra one currently but it's big and steel.
I've not figured out what light i will use yet... but it will be metal halide.
Substrate will be powersand (I still think it's gimmicky but oh well) under Amazonia I.
Stone will be seiryu or ryuoh.
Flora will be Cypress Helferi, HC, and Downoi.
Fauna will be otos, briggitae, and kubotai. I have the briggitae and kubotai in holding already.
I'm not sure what filter I will use yet. I need something with a spectacular flowrate as I will be using a hydor inline heater and I may move the music glass to the 30 cube and go with an inline cal aqua diffuser. Will a 2236 be able to handle this abuse?
Here is the little holding tank i set up yesterday for the briggitae. The filter was hanging on the back of another tank. ( I have 3 HOB's in varying sizes that are used to cycle new tanks) I placed it on the floor because i Didn't feel like dealing with it. LAZY BONES. I initially planned to place it on my desk. I still may do that
Here are the little guys (30) hiding out.
and the kubotai. These guys are neon green bundles of joy. If you look above the heater... you can make out a few of the sharpnosed chocolate gouramis that are also in quarantine.
More to come!
