I got this tank from my brother and have been wanting to set it up for a while but the lights were busted among other things so I've had to delay it for a while. I started setting it up today as I'm expecting my order for the new bulbs to arrive tomorrow. It's not much to look at at the moment, but I'm hoping it turns out a lot better than my previous tank.
Today I just added the substrate, filled it and made sure all the stuff for the filter was up and running. I've got regular Flourite for the substrate, luckily this time I cleaned it before just tossing water on it, it's already almost cleared out after about 5 hours or so. I bought a crypt the other day that I put in my sisters tank for safekeeping until this one was ready so that's in there too.
12g JBJ NanoCube
Filter is consistent of the sponges, BioBalls and pump that came with the cube
2x 24W 10,000K Bulbs
Also on this tank is my first go at a DIY CO2 System. I set it up about 2 hours ago and it seems to be producing a steady stream of bubbles. I have it connected to an air diffusser at the moment but will be ordering a glass one over the weekend.
As far as plants I have the crypt which my brother told me was Wendtii, yet to be planted as I have no idea where I want this tank to go yet.
I don't have any fish but I'm planning on getting about 3-4 Oto's and maybe 4 or 5 Harlequin Rasbora. Not too many, but its all subject to change.
Here are some pic's of the tank, please excuse the cloudy water, as I mentioned before, the Flourite managed to retain a good amount of dust even though I washed it about 4 times before putting it in the tank :/
Here is my CO2 Setup, just set up in a glass of water to make sure everything was in working order, will be put in the tank probably over the weekend
Let me know what you think, not much as of now but it should take off in a couple of days when I've got everything for it!
