Thread: Grow your tank

  1. #1

    Grow your tank

    Just a little demonstration of what a 20gal Long can grow to in a little over a year... No ferts, no CO2, light fish stocking (4 peacock gudgeon). Current plants are: dwarf hair-grass, several amazon sword of various sizes, and a large crypt. Almost all of these were divided from parents plants in my other tanks. (I also grow anubias but have none in this tank) First photo was taken April 2016, second August 2017. IMG_4611.jpgIMG_0434.jpg

    So what light do you have over the tank?

  7. #7
    the plant in the middle is an amazon sword. They will outgrow a 20gal too so I keep it pruned back so that its stays smaller. The light over the tank is an aqueon bulb in an overpriced crappy fixture. I bought like basically a "petsmart setup" before I knew any better. All the rest of my tanks have LEDs and I plan on switching this over eventually as well, but for some reason this bulb wont die and give me an excuse to upgrade. I've had it on there since I set the tank up in December of 2015

    I can give you a reason if the bulb is that old. :) Fluorescent light output drops over time. Quite a bit, in fact.

    I'm sure it has lost output over time. But it doesn't seem to have impacted the tank negatively at all- mainly because almost all the plants are happy with low-light (except the hairgrass). It still should die eventually though right? (edit: "it" being the light)
