More Info

Country: Canada
Description: The tank is 40 gallons. Its dimensions are 36' Inches long, 13" wide and 18" tall. Equipment includes a 96 Watt Coralife Single Tube Light (daytime), a 30 Watt Blulight Exoterra Light (Nighttime), a 200 watt Aquaclear Sidemounted Heater, and a Regent Double Power Filter. I also have a few airstones for decorative effect. Decor: 3 inches of nutrient enhanced substrate, 2 rocks/driftwood piece to create texture and caves
Advice: Patience is very important as a aquarist. You can't rush anything. 90% of "quick fix" products are shams. You HAVE to cycle a tank properly, either fishless, with plants, or with hardy fish like Danios. Plan your tank before you start making it. When you finally have your tank, realize that there will always be some algae. Its a sign of a healthy tank!^^
Fish Kept: Right Now: 2 Zebra Danios, 4 Leopard Danios, 5 Neon Tetras, 6 Black Tetras, 6 Panda Corydoras, 1 Banjo Catfsh and 1 Bushynosed Pleco. I plan on getting more Tetras and Danios to replenish the ones lost through cycling.
Corals/Plants: I have 4 Cyrpts, 2 Hygos Siamensis, 2 Hygo Compacts, 2 Amazon Swords, 2 Anubis Plants 3 Glossostigma plant clusters, Cardimine Kytra and a Hygro Polysperma. There is also a healthy supply of algae growing on my driftwood. ^^
Tank Size: 40 gallons
