knee Posted January 4 Share Posted January 4 (edited) Took a break from scaping when the pandemic happened. Took two neglected turtles in and then it outgrew the 20g long, luckily I have a friend who has a huge pond that wanted turtles. 11/21 20 long scaped with the OG dither fish still in the tank. Hardscape was just some leftover I had from a previous setup which wasn’t a lot cause I gave most of them away. I also put a black piece of corrugated board in between the sand and aquasoil because I had big cories at this time and I knew they’d be mixing the substrates. Cories started spawning nonstop. Eggs were everywhere but most of them were eaten by the guppies or danios 11/27 Roommate felt bad about the rocks being incomplete so he took me to a fish store and bought some more dragon stone. I had all the rocks in front cause i didn’t wanna disturb the stem plants in the back 12/05 Found a super cheap 40 breeder with stand. Grabbed the tank and moved all the fish from the 20 long (at this point the OG fish; cories, guppies and danios) have been rehomed. I opted for all sand but I do have some aquasoil in media bags with some root tabs underneath the sand. 12/14 Tanks current state. Some plants have grown fish are looking better [*]low tech no co2 tank [*]liquid ferts dosed once or twice per week [*]light on 10 hours a day Plants: [*]anubias nana petite [*]some random anubias that was on sale at petsmart [*]El Niño fern [*]windelov Java fern [*]buce [*]hygro pinnatifida [*]bunch of rotala (h’ra, ceylon, wallichi and bonsai) [*]ludwigia palustris and some super red variant [*]ammania gracilis [*]some big leaf hygro which I’m assuming is corymbosa [*]hydrocotyle for carpet [*]rotala bonsai -myrio green Fish: [*]pair of Bolivian rams [*]lampeye killi [*]furcata rainbow [*]ember tetra [*]female bettas [*]ramshorn and mystery snail [*]Pygmy Cories (pygmaeus and habrosus) Will update this thread when the plants have finally started growing. Some stems are already showing signs of new growth but tank still needs more time. Edited January 7 by knee 6 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
