More Info

State: Vermont
Country: United States
Description: 75g Roseline rasbora setup from early 2007. Original flourite substrate, flourish excel carbon addititive with 250w corallife power compact 10k/6k lightbulbs. Rena filstar xp3 with fine filter pads and full bio media loaded. NO co2 on this tank. Pictures are of various placements of plants and wood throughout the year. I sold off the extra plants 3 times that year so I reset the design each time. Grow time was extremely fast for all plants.
Advice: Go big...as big as you can! Leave it be more than you mess with it...you'll have more fun with it..and you wont go crazy trying to make it JUST right!!! I envy Mr. Amano's setups but you have to know what your limits are!
Fish Kept: roseline rasboras, gold nugget pleco, cardinal tetras, betta, juli corys, otociniclus, gouramis...various others.
Corals/Plants: zostrafolia(star grass) vallisnaria, tiger lotus, java fern/moss, many bulbs....again various others. Wish I could find a low growing plant to make a carpet with but selection is limited here in Vermont, importing plants is restricted.
Tank Size: 75 gallons
About Yourself: Small 30g tank at age 12 then left for a bit.....came back with my current tank 5 years ago and started to get into plants and aquascaping heavily. Going for Discus now with a total rebuild late 2008 in my new home...pics when its grown in and more than my one new discus.
