More Info

Country: Phillippines
Description: 100-gallon freshwater planted community aquarium, 72" long x 18" tall x 18" wide. Light provided by two fluorescent tubes in a reflectorized and 24-h timer (14 hours on) controlled housing: one 40W pink tube and one 40W daylight tube. Filtration is provided by two sets of an undergravel filter connected to a 500 gal/h powerhead that brings the water to an overhead filter with filter wool, ceramic rings, and plastic chips/balls.
Advice: Do not trust 100% your local fish store employee unless he/she belongs to a reputable company or is a hobbyist him/herself. Read independently from aquarium books, or websites/forums online. Make sure what information you find on the Internet also comes from a reputable source and agrees with the basics of biology.

Tank Size: 100 gallons
About Yourself: I've cared for aquaria since I was 14 years old (that makes it 11 years of experience now). Started out with a small 5-gallon planted tank with plecos; moved up to 10, 30, 50 gallons (goldfish), then to 100 gal saltwater (but the hot tropical climate here in Manila proved difficult to handle without a chiller). Recently converted that 100 gal saltwater into this present aquarium.
