Well.......I finally was able to move my 28 gal to my new house....or shall i say I have been here since march and the tank had been sitting in my old bedroom being VERY neglected......it was lucky to be topped off once a month and the fishes were lucky to be fed more than once a week........needless to say I lost most of the plants....only the Java moss and java fern and duckweed survived for the 6 months that it was in such a sad state.......
I finally was able to find a stand for the tank......do you know how hard it was to find a stand that was priced ok? Anyway here are the specs....
28 gal bowfront
Sera plant sand......under Eco complete
2.5 bags Eco Complete
Fluval 205 cannister
2 24 inch t5 HO GLO lights
1 24 inch stock light(used as a moon light)
Java Moss.....I think
not sure about the rest....anyone want to guess?
All fish are original to the tank...and I only lost 1 guppy.....SHOCKING!!
I have been doing a 50% water change at least once a week and I try for 2 times a week....esp since this a new tank....altho I brought the cannister complete with the dirty water from the old tank to cycle the new tank....and so far it is working....
If you look closely you can see that the plants have some kind of algae on them....esp the moss......but I have noticed that it seems to be fading away gradually.....
Right now I am not running any CO2 but am dosing excel until I do....I am looking at DIY CO2........I understand that I can use 2 liter bottles.......but how many do i need for this tank? Anyone recommend one with specifics?
ANYWAY comments and critics are welcome.......be gentle tho...teehee!!
