So far I have owned two tanks. The first was a 3 gallon betta cube, and the second a planted 15 gallon I bought when I decided the 3 gallon wasn't quite enough space for me or the betta. I have replanted the 15 gal. twice, and raised various plants, with almost entire sucess so far (currently growing Anubias, like watching paint dry). As christmas approached, I got adventurous.
I have purchased a 300 litre (80 gallon) 4 foot setup. Stunning setup, now running water through it to make sure it all works
Right. Tommorow I plan on adding a good layer of white sand to the tank, and then (once it settles a bit) adding rockwork, plants and fish. I'm currently thinking Discus and Algae Eaters (have had bad experiences with hair algae
). The AE will be added first, and the Discus later, once the tank matures. That being said my younger brothers (Twelve and Nine) seem intent to interfer. If they say goldfish, I'm gonna have to shoot myself.
I like to be ahead of the game, so have photoshopped-up some quick sketches of what I am thinking. I know its hard to see, but are there any initial thoughts?
(Brown represents rocks, green represents plants)
I'de really like this tank done well, so any input would be appreciated (ideally some constructive criticism would be appreciated)
