I definitely love your hard scape this tank has some serious potential when its grown out. do i see two filter intakes on this tank? an eheim and something else? Awesome Job, btw where'd you get that wood?

It looks good so far! Could you give us a little more detail about the specs of your tank?

i use 2 filter to ensure a good water movement in tha tank , i also inject co2 directly in one of those for a better dissolution

for the wood there are different varieties , some coming from a mountain not so far from my place but most of i comes from aquashops

Digsy , tank is 240L , 120*45*45cm , lights 144W (T8) , i like to keep a small light/Liters ratio , eheim 2028 , eheim 2078 all in bacerial filtration (most effective to me) . co2 pressurise 1bps 12h/day , aquasoil , power sand , tuormalineBC , penacW .

some pictures of the inhabitants , quite a few varieties in this tank as recently rather than keeping a big school of fishes i'd rather have many different species

Hyphessobrycon pulchripinnis



Tanichthys albonubes



red fantom



rasbora dorsiocellata in an earlier version of this tank



puntius rhomboocellatus also in an earlier version of this tank





hope you like it

Really, really like the driftwood! Your tank looks amazing! Good job!

Looks great. That wood looks so much better than the twiggy manzanita look so many people use.

Looking great. I really like those Puntius rhomboocellatus. Wish I could see them offered for sale more often over here in H-town.
