Trio of Nuvo Nanos. Peninsula and 2 Cubes. North American Native "theme"

Hello guys, I took advantage of the drsfostersmith.com sale and thought I would take the opportunity to upgrade my set ups a little bit.


I currently have two standard 10 gallon tanks on makeshift stands with a funkily rigged lighting system. I went ahead and got a 14 Fusion peninsula and a 10 Black Cube, with Plans for another cube. Plans are to build a stand and have the Peninsula bordered by the cubes kind of in a "T" shape.


One tank is home to a Madtom Tadpole, been going strong for just over 3 years.



The other 10 Gallon has 5 darters. Banded or Johnny darters I am not sure. This has only been up a few months and am just not happy with the aquascape/equipment.






The third Cube might get a pair of Okefenokee pygmy sunfish or some native killifish.


Anyways... this will be a work in progress. The 14 Peninsula will be the new darter home, flanked by the 10g Cubes.. I have ADA substrate on the way but need to get hardscape materials for all 3 tanks. I see some good stuff in the trade forum.


Now where I need my first bits of advice.


I would like to hook up a Co2 system. What kinda of set up should I look into to deliver to all 3 tanks? Never done c02 before just need to be pointed in the right direction.
Edit: Read this article posted below. Now I am looking towards something like an Aquatech regulator, with electronic solenoid attached to a timer that corresponds to my lights. Using a 3 way splitter and some glass diffusers.

What filter media are people using for the AIOs? Fluval Biomaxx?


Thanks for advice and I will continue to post pics as everything progresses.

No cubes! IM 14 peninsula, IM Black 10 gallon, and a JBJ picotope

I would like to first start my update with a quick message to Aqua Illumination about their hanging kit.

lost those 3 little ball things. $&^&^#&^$&%*)$%*)%*&)%



That is all. Will tie some knots instead and take a picture to post on the stand I built.

ETA: Found the "instructions" picture. Too late.






For my next trick, I will be aquascaping.....

Always great to see someone playing with natives. I've got a pair of Blue Spotted Sunfish in a 20H that I'd like to see breed at some point (any day guys, please). I tried to have a tadpole madtom as well, but he met an unfortunate end when he got injured by a filter intake.

3 aquascapes, I have them planted and filled now with Aquatek c02 running. I'll need another light for the seiryu stone tank i think, or maybe some more fiddling with the mount.

Also... the Nuvo Peninsula 14 pump was very LOUD. Replaced it with a Sicce Syncra 0.5 Aquarium Pump, 185gph. Muuuuchh better.

Very interested in this project! I had toyed with okeefenokee sunfish for my 7.5 gallon cube but ultimately went with peacock gudgeons. Maybe for my next tank.... Can't wait to see more!

A bit of unsolicited advice: Post your pictures on Imgur (you can make an account for free) and then embed links to the pictures rather than using the built in image hosting function. It's easier in the long run and allows you display larger, higher res pictures.
