anyway, im trying to get this up this week becauuse i have off for thanksgiving, i have most everything ready, only thing left is a few plant species (rare and expensive ones) and a co2 refill for my co2 tank. The tank is going to be a Rio Araguaia "biotope". I say "biotope" because it will not look like the river, just have indigenous species :hihi:

anyway, here's the hardscape:



my planned fauna list:

Laetacara araguaiae
Corydoras araguaiaensis
Otocinclus tapirape
Hyphessobrycon amandae

flora list:

X-mas Moss
Alternanthera reineckii 'Rosaefolia"
Heteranthera zosterifolia
Hygrophila sp "Araguaia"
Staurogyne sp. "Low Grow"
Echinodorus tenellus
Rotala mexicana "Araguaia" (previously known as Rotala pusilla)
Rotala sp. "Araguaia"
Helanthium sp. "Angustifolius"

Nice! This is going to be a good one. You must have been saving up you got some nice hardware there.
didnt really cost that much, just had to work for it, traded i think 6 sets for the ADA replica stand alone, that was a lot of work :icon_surp

How many years in the making has this tank been?
lol only since april :D

feels like forever though :hihi:

Man, thankfully you didn't start the journal back in april :hihi:

Good job with all the pipes though, the hobby is doubly rewarding when it pays for itself. :thumbsup:
