Julians 15G Tank

Well i should have made a journal thread maybe way back when i started it because here i am again.

Anyway went to the store on saturday and picked up sand, some more driftwood and a new rock as well. No new livestock yet as its still a cold walk home from the store this time of year. Did get some new plants however. Crypto Lutea and Moneywort.

since my early photos i have also upgraded the lighting. Its now 2x14w T5 over 15g i believe. My next thing is to set up the dyi CO2 which i'm still nervous about blowing up for some reason. Also a canister filter is in the future, ehiem 2213 i think.

Hope you enjoy the photos.

looking good! will look better when it fills in some.
dont worry about the co2 blowing up, the tube would have to be clogged for days to blow.

Looks good mate, i agree, for the co2 to blow it would need a big blockage over a reasonlable time. i run 2 two litre bottles on my 20G,
its great if diffused right it works a treat. my tank is at my girl firends house and she only feeds them and i have never had a problem.

will be great to see wen i fills out.

alright cool thanks for the support on the CO2 that will be a project for this weekend.

Also will a ehiem 2213 be way to much flow for my little 15g tank? if not i think its good incase i upgrade the tank size in the future.

A 2213 will be good on there. I have one on a 10g and it's throttled back (at least 40-50%).

thanks think i'm going to order one tonight. I figured with the quick release clamp you could turn the flow down pretty easy
