I've got a 15 gallon tank that needs a refresher. + I've also got a decent profit sharing check coming in tomorrow. + My next schedule travel is just a quick cross country jaunt the end of Feb. = Tank redesigning time!
two 23W CFL in an old hood,
Ancient & loud Whisper 10-20
Builders sand substrate.
Small swords & Vals I've been propagating in it.
I've also got 14 fish in QT in it to go to the 125g tank. They can get tossed into the two 10G growout tanks.
Current thought -Clean it back to the glass and silicone. Replace the filter, light, top, and substrate.
Limitations: May - October 50% travel or more with three or four 2 week International trips. Wife will dump pre-measured food and ferts into the tanks but refuses to touch the icky fishtanks more than that. Rules out CO2.
Objective: I've got an old rocking chair that I started to refinish to go into the house. After discovering how comfortable it is to drink scotch with my feet up in it, the project is on a 9 year hiatus from completion
. I need a little piece of art to enjoy.
Suggestions or recommendations on a full setup?
