User

purgatori27

55 gallon

Date Started

May 2007

One double strip light and 2 single 15 gallon lights over glass canopies

Equipment

Magnum 350 Pro running with carbon as well as a bag of Purigen

CO2

None

Substrate

Eco-Complete

Parameters

pH stays at 7.0

Fertilization

Half doses of Flourish one or twice a month, and a few plant tabs every other water change. I also use Blackwater Extract by Kent. I also use Indian Almond leaves on occasion in this tank (always use them in my shrimp tanks)

Plants

Hornwort, Red Ludwigia, Cabomba, Anacharis, Java Fern, Java Moss, Flame Moss, Amazon Swords, Aponogeton crispus, Red Dwarf Lilly, Anubias barteri 'Nana', Italian Val. Now it also has Corkscrew Val, Wisteria, Melon Sword, Foxtail, and some type of Hygro.

Inhabitants

18 Cardinal Tetras, 5 Melanotaenia boesemani, 3 Melanotaenia praecox (yes, I know they'll interbreed), 1 Jumbo Neon Tetra, 1 Sunset mix Platy, 4 Albino Aeneus Cories, 3 Emerald Green (Brochis Splendens) Cories, 3 Palateus or Peppered Cories, 1 Julii Cory, about a dozen Cherry Shrimp, 5 Bamboo Shrimp, 1 huge female purple Apple Snail, Red-Rimmed Melania (MTS) snails, Quilted Melania (Tarebia granifera), and Melanoides turricula (another type of MTS snail). When this pic was taken, there were also a rack of Platies, 1 female Synodontis eupterus, 2 Clown Loaches, and 2 Eastern Red Spotted Newts. They have since been moved to a home where they no longer destroy my plants and eat my shrimp.

Comments
