Description: 55 gal penguin 350 bio-wheel and on the opposite side i have a small undergravel with powerhead to add some flow. 200 watt heater. i have a basic incandescent hood with 4flourescent bulbs to replace the 4 incandescent bulbs(its about 4-6 times brighter than the basic 15wattX4 incandescent setup)
Advice: after your tank cycle sit back and relax....got a good solid month of letting the nutrients build befor you have to clean again. sand is a pain to setup...but for me it was worth it.
Fish Kept: chalinochromi ndobnoi a hecqui and 8 leptasomas (blue flash)
About Yourself: was into fish tanks in my early teens. i loved my jack dempsy and mating pair of convicts. i want one day to breed some discus in a planted dyi tank, this site really opened my eyes to the planted tanks AWESOME!!!!
