I'm always interested in seeing other people's tanks to get some new ideas or inspiration for my tanks!

Let's see them!

I've got an old shot of my 25G I used to have, and will post some updated shots soon, after I get back from my trip.

Everyone knows me most for my obsession with plecos... so here is a sneak peek at my newest project. Another big tank for more plecs! Tank is a standard 120g (48x24) with another 20g running in the sump. Tank is still cycling and wood is leaching some tannins as you can tell, but will be ready for the first set of plecos in a week or so. Tank will kept bare botttom with only driftwood. Arrangement of wood will change.

Didn't even see someone had replied!

Bluefalcon, is that a 3D background? Love the simplicity of the tank!

aXio, what kind of wood is that? Also curious what kind of plecos your going to get?

I'm also on TPT and have followed that build from the beginning! He does an amazing job.

Making a tree is a great idea. Maybe with small-leafed Anubias and a root structure. Thanks for the picture Hilde.

I just got some more rock and hid the stream pump behind them. I like that all the gear is hidden. Eheim classic with inline heater feeding out of the 3D background. Sicce Voyager pumping out the debris from behind the rocks.
Thanks for viewing.

Nice tanks!
I love the DIY sump, looks really good. Do you have anything stocked in the tank?

Here's one of mine: https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170115/0e7fa2bacc30536060648a5eaaae1e93.png it's a 20L blackwater biotype for a pair of Apistos, which will not breed for me.

Yes, it has 2 GBRs, 2 Gold Rams, 2 Julie Corys, 2 Otos, 2 Nerite snails, and some Cherry Barbs that will soon be replaced with a school of Cardinals.

Simple and readily available T5HO tubes ....... I ensured the color temp is 6500 K

Ive found the T5HO to be the best light for plants. Really haven't found a LED as effective as they are with plants. I'm sure others may have found something that works effectively though.

Tropical

Agreed, they work well and T8s if you don't have very demanding plants.

Only thing I can grow in LED are Anubis and java fern, however the Anubis does amazing and gets barely any algae on it compared to a T8/T5, as well as growing "pretty fast" at least for an Anubis.

Set it up yesterday! My first aquarium! Just going to keep shrimp. I put some in! I wanted a beta but I just read they will eat the shrimp :( is that true?

i think I'm going to go to the store and get more stalks of bamboo and rubber band them together at the bottom to make it more sturdy.

i think I'll also rearrange the plants, I just set it up quick since I had to watch the Super Bowl :/

smitty

I don't have a lot of experience with Bettas but I would assume that given their size, they'd have a feast on the shrimp. Shrimp really love having java moss, but just as a warning it will grow alot and needs trimmings (which can be sold at the auctions). You'll always be rearranging, especially as you add on additional tanks :)

Robthepanda
02-06-2017, 01:57 PM
Yeah I'm going to mess around with it. I really just want stemmed planets because I can place rocks around it for the nice feng shui look it provides, that accompanies the look of the bamboo. Trying to go for an Asian-esque look for my tank which is why I wanted the beta :(

Doesn't count really, but terrarium native biotope of the gold branch section of the Chattahoochee. Includes fissidens moss, tooth worts, baby tears, fern, smoky quartz, metagraywacke, sweet gum bark. Just a little project with the youngest on the water cycle and biotopes.

We also collected at the site some water celery, and put it in the pond with native coontails. We observed stoneroller minnows active swimming despite it being in the 30's. Will try to get moss to grow submersed. Will blend and attach to lava rock and also tie to knitting canvas and let float for a while.

Nice! Fissidens is native to the chattahoochee?? Huh

There are a few species under the genus in GA. I think most notably is Appalachian fissidens, but I think what I have is not the Appalachian species.
