I have been goofing around and learning the last few months on a few 5 gallon tanks and I started a 20 long that I've never been too happy with.
After searching for equipment and doing some more research I have decided to take the plunge and upgrade to some 40 B's. The equipment is here and over the last few nights I have been gathering rocks and driftwood for the scape. Here are the 2 tanks just with the substrate and scape in place. No water yet.
Planning on running eheim 125w heaters as well as 2213 canisters. I have been afraid of canisters but I used a small toms rapid canister on my 20 and loved it so far.
Plants and fish are all open to ideas/ suggestion still I might still move the scales around some yet as well. I also have no plans for fish as yet. Thinking smaller fish maybe some rasboras or endlers. Will also include otos and nerites as well.
I do not plan to use co2 yet too scared for that as well but I will be dosing the EI method with the package from green leaf and excel.
Thanks for looking and I plan to keep this updated.
