Submitted By:john on
Photo Caption:I have a variety of social fish and just started planting my tank about 3 month ago when I upgraded lighting.I'm doing the homemade Co2 injectind and most of my plants have taken off. No fish fatalities(knock on wood) I'e read about all the ups and downs and ph spikes.We have really hard water which has which a few species wont grow in but over all It's been a success. Any advise will be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Description: It is a 36x22x18 glass tank.I have a 4 lamp, t5 fixture.I'm running a 530 gph canistar filter. I've been experimenting with a variety of live plants, everything but the psalm tree is live.The dwarf gouramis are by far the best at keeping the hair and other algae at bay. I have had cherry red shrimp in it for about 3 month and hope they will start breeding
Advice: Go slow. Find out what works with your water conditions and go with that.
About Yourself: Iv'e had the tank going on 2 years and just love it. Iv'e always been interested but was afraid it would just be a fad, got a great deal on craigslist, and now I'm thinking of upgradeing to a 90 or 110. I'm an electrician and am married with 3 kids, all of them share at least a little of my enthusiasm for the hobby
