Well I moved my tank across town to my new place and it has allowed me to re-aquascape my tank. A rare feat for me. I usually just let my tank just do its own thing.
My tank's specs:
50g reef ready glass cage 36 x 18 x 18
2 96W PC 1-6700K 1- 50/50
Pressurized CO2 Injection
Eheim Canister filter
2 Maxi Jet 1200 (I love current, die hard reefer its hard to give up)
Dose a capful of Flourish every water change
feed 4-5x a day for NO3 & PO4
Nitrates ~ 5ppm
CO2 ~ 18 PPM
I have to have my CO2 cranked really high with all the water movement going on. Pic of my Discus and Apisto hanging out by the powerhead.
My stocking list is kind of a mess
2 pigeon blood "Apricot Sunshine" Discus
28+ Cardinal tetras, I think, I might have more
16 Rummynose tetras
2 Striata Botia
1 Siamese Flying Fox
1 Apisto Cautiodes Double Orange
A ton of ghost and cherry shrimp dont ask me how they survive they just do.
I used to have more fish and in school groupings but my tanks are a little thick so its easy to lose fish and not notice it. Im really looking for more discus and Apistos but good ones are hard to come by.
I was really trying to focus on a theme for this tank. I liked my old style but it was a little scatter brained I thought.
My theme was " A Shipwreck in the Sand", I wanted everything to flow and break on the sand banks I setup in the corner. I also wanted to setup a bunch of wood arches for the fish to swim through. Well here are the pics, thanks for all the suggestions.
And to all those that say Discus and Apistos wont get along
They are always together, I have a feeling when I increase their school levels that'll stop but I dont see any animosity between these two species.
