so i have decided that i cannot let my dad have all the fun setting up his 125g tank so i went out on a limb and bought a 29 gallon gallon tank. (a small upgrade from my 20g but it gives me some more options when it comes to stocking.) so here is what i have so far
ehiem 2213 from the 20 gallon.
plastic heater that is rated for a 55g
Milwaukee co2 regulator with a 5lb tank
65w coralife fixture.
and fertilizers from green leaf aquariums
i hope to get
a coralife 30" t5 fixture
and a power head for some additional circulation.
my local fish store carries ADA products so i am will most likely use aquasoil and i have been soaking some driftwood for couple of weeks now
here are some picks of what i have so far.
the tank being panted with some trusty black spray paint.
the stand which i got at target for 30 bucks not to bad of a deal
the stand does have a few modifications if you were wondering about its strength the top is reinforced with 2 by 3s and the back is renforced with a 1 by 6.
the stand is quite strong i have had the tank sitting on it for quite a few days and it seems just fine.
i am not sure on what to stock i have nine rasboras in my 20g and would like to transfer them but im not sure what else to put in i was think blue rams but that seems alittle over done. any comments sugjestions.
more updates soon
by the way i went and saw my dads tank in person today it is awesome all the plants are pearling like crazy and the growth is fenomanal.
