Description: 125G very overstocked with Oscars, Pacu's, Plecos and multiple dithers. (I will have to rehome the Pacu's soon to a local "Oscar Pond" as they are growing much faster than I had anticipated). It uses 2-Fluval FX6's filled with all biomedia and two Eheim's filled with carbon and Purigen. Two huge pothos plants grow out the top dropping the nitrates precipitously. 120G with Electric Blue Acaras and Red Severums. FX6 and SunSun704. One FX6 with all biomedia, the SunSun all carbon/Purigen. As above, this tank has two huge pothos plants grow out the top dropping the nitrates precipitously. 75G is a Discus tank with a school of Cardinals using a "forest" of Lucky Bamboo growing out the top, now towering some 4' above the tank! It uses two SunSun 704's, one all biomedia, one all carbon/Purigen. The "bamboo" is the nitrate consuming champ so far as I can no longer measure any nitrates in this tank (It peaked to 5ppm once).And a 5G with a betta and a mystery snail.
Advice: Please don't start until you know what cycling is.
Corals/Plants: All of my tanks use Riparian and Epipremnum plants with roots in the water, leaves growing out the top for nitrate reduction.
Tank Size: 125 gallons
