29g Update

This tank now has a DIY Wet/Dry sump added to it bringing the total water capacity up to approx. 49g.
It's been simplified in the decorations department but it's going to turn into a SW-FOWLR tank in the near future.
There's a 120g tank on the way 8)

hmmm

That seems like a pretty nice tank. Not to much decorations and fish. But once you get your 120g i wanna see that when its setup :) but i like the tank. looks like the bottom of the water at a beach with fish swimming around it :)

IMHO, you couls add some more plants and maybe bog or drift wood? or some neat scene things.. Looks kind of bare although the fish look cool and so does the tank..

Good luck,
Nathaniel

Looking good.

I suspect your plants might get eaten however - worth it to have the fish I think though.

Thanks..these Plants are all live Aponogeton and Dwarf Lily.
They are not getting eaten, at the moment, but they are doing a great job keeping my Nitrates down to less than 10ppm. That level used to hover around 20ppm until the plants got going well.
The Oscar did look funny one day when he grabbed a stem that grew to the top of the water from one of the Dwarf Lily plants right on the end of it. He looked like a fish that had been reeled all the way up to the end of a fishing rod! He had that stem end almost down to the bottom of the tank chewing on it. He released it a couple times and would go back and get it again. Basically he ate the end off of it but since then he does not bother any of the plants.
The plants are all coming out of there and going in the bigger FW tank as well as the sand(since it is Silica Sand) when it turns into a Saltwater tank.
The sand will probably be thrown away since I have treated this tank with a copper based solution once even though it was only for a short time. I found out that any treatment with Copper will be harmful for a Saltwater tank since it will leach back into the water from the sand.

Searched back through and found an old post with the larger of the Plants(hybrid aponogeton), in the picture above, when they started out just 1 month ago...
