First month.




Last fall

How do you create a river like current in there?

Wow, you've got a sweet tank. Your crypts are growing well, are you using some sort of root tabs for these plants? Are you using CO2 as well?

You got it right.... but I changed out the power heads for a sinlge large pump(1200 ghr) and swapped out the canister filter for a eheim pro II.

The tank use to have pressurized co2, but I was going through a lot of co2 with all the turbulance and the venturi device I had hooked up on a extra power head. This tank has been up and running for about 3 years.

Nice.. lots of rocks to cover up the unplanted areas, and with that strong current like just in a river.

I think I might know a fish that suits the tank, does eats algae and require such setup to stay alive. Try Borneo suckerfish.

Reminds me of the under gravel river manifold people were constructing on loachesonline.com.

Looks nice!
