The 450ltr tank Parts Boyu EFU-45 canister filter 12kg Co2 Ehiem 300W Small random filter to circulate Co2 Odysea double T5 Odysea quad T5 Small air pump for night hours when. which has been the most interesting purely because of the incredibly long road to get it how it is. First it was the initial layout and start of the tank which I let sit and cycle without fish for around 2 months. Then happily adding fish that met my requirements and then running though the usual problem associated with stocking a tank without going through proper procedure, specifically quarantine of new stock which to this day is causing problems for me but I’m figuring it out. The major issue that I’m still trying to recover was from having to dose No planeria to get rid of Hydra and months and many water changes later I need to get some purigen and active carbon to remove the last traces of it. Pic 1 Buying and setting up the tank and realizing these blue LEDs unfortunately will not work. Pic 2 Creating the base layers in the tank using pfs and leca to achieve the gradient I wanted Pic 3 Plotting the initial hard scape and hopefully planted areas which I now realize definitely hasn’t stayed the same. Pic 4 after setting up the hardscape figuring out the actual planting. Pic 5 finished planting the first carpet ideal of pearl weed just melted away completely. Pic 6 after the melting of the pearl weed the addition of dwarf sag as a foreground plant and a few small pieces of giant baby tears both from @A new day Pic 7 two more plants added, the centre red stems and Indian water weed. Pic 8 removed the dwarf sag because it was growing to tall and decided to try a only baby tears carpet. Pic 9 coming home to tank after three weeks of not being there to find a problem I never had before Algae. Pic 10 most current photo, trying to get the Monte Carlo to grow in and re shuffled lots. Any comments, criticisms, points and or advice would be hugely appreciated. Just battling with poor connectivity to upload the other tanks.
