decided to redo my 4ft tank a few days ago but didnt have any spare cash to buy new gear. This is how it came out using the stuff i had on hand. Honesty not to sure im happy with it and will probably swap some of the plants out when i have some spare cash. please let me know your opion and any advice. thanks in advance.
Tank: standard 4ft rimless.
Light: 4x54w t5ho 2x6500k 2x 10000k (Cheap Ebay fixture but seems ok)
CO2: 2.6kg cylinder, cheap ebay regulator (seems quite good for what i paid)
Filtration: 1x 2200lph canister, 1x 1200lph canister
Substrate: mineralized potting mix capped with river sand.
Plants so far:
some kind of crypt
No fish in tank yet as only set up this morning, however i have about 100 red cherry shrimp and 10 white cloud minnows, 5 ottos and 4 SAE's waiting in a smaller tank for this one to cycle.
will try and get some better pics once the water clears properly.
