i figured i would start a journal for the 75 gallon tank i am about to plant and i figured i could just toss up some pictures of my already set up 29 gallon tank. ill start with the 75.
at first the 75 was barebottom growing out my discus but i had a problem with my deion unit and it killed the ten discus i was growing out.
but i guess one good thing out of it is i can plant it now instead of this summer so thats kinda good
Pro II 2026
Magnum 350 micron (need to buy)
Tek 48" 4 bulb system (need to buy)
Giesemann midday and flora
Sumo Reg (still need to buy)
substrate PFS and fluorite sand
The 75 i would have done alot of things different looking back now but i did alot of things because i was going to be a discus tank. i got two sub. heaters instead of an inline (may still switch) i did PFS for substate to lighted the substrate to make discus not as dark. if i would have done it again i would get som ADA substrate a custom rimless tank with bulkheads drilled but live and learn i guess.
i wanted this tank to look like SuRje1976
's tank with the path down the middle. im going more for stem plants but the same basic shape. i started with a layer of black sand with PFS over top and if the black sand ends up mixing then thats ok im in collage and im sure i will be moving out of my apartment with in a year or two so i can change it then.
a few anubias
java fern "trident" or "Narrow"
A red plant im thinking Ludwigia Glandulosa but im not sure any input?
not one hundred percent sure but this is what i have so far. i want alot of schooling fish that are not "flashy" like neons or cardinals thats for my 29.
15-20 Harlequin Rasbora
5 plecos (not sure what ones yet)
and maybe 8 congo tetras.
any advice on this stock list would be good.
ok now some pics. some of the discus i used to have, the hardscape and one of the plecos i already have. (hes in the 29 now)
