Hi D3monic here. Recently scaling down my current hobbies and looking to just play with a small planted tank for a bit. I was a avid reefer for several years.
Heres a few shots of my 75gal macro tank
My nano reef
After I got out of that hobby I got into Dart Frogs
Currently have 10 vivariums in my living room but getting ready to sell everything due to allergy issues from some of the plants and mites.
Just a small taste
Any how. I am selling everything off and just keeping the stand I built for the 75gal. I am looking to set up either a 75gal or 90gal if I remember correctly they have the same footprint.
I have the old overflow from my 75gal reef tank so i might just buy a 90gal and drill it myself and silicone the overflow where ever i want it.
Thinking a nice Discus community tank with tetras, corycats and maybe a few angels.
For filtration does anyone have any good suggestions for canister / biofiltration? I would like to do the majority of filtering under the tank out of sight.
Sub-straight would most likely be eco earth unless someone suggests something else for the plants I list.
Lighting I am going to use my 4 bulb HO T5 unit. Should be enough for most plants.
I need to do more research on CO2 injection and stuff but should be easy enough.
Browsed the data base and came up with a short list of plants I liked. Please, feel free to offer other suggestions. I need more green background suggestions.
For background I was thinking Limnophila aromatica, Creeping Jenny
Midground / showpieces i was thinking either tiger lotus or red rubin sword.
Foreground mostly Utricularia graminifolia with a few rocks to break up the ground. Maybe some Eriocaulon sp. 'cinereum near the edges and or Lawn Marshpennywort.
Would any of the ornamental shrimp species be ok with the types of fish listed?
Anyhow this is the shortened (accidently deleted post the first time) version.
If I did not go into much detail I am sorry.
Look forward to hanging with you guys and posting the upcoming build pics.
