Greetings, fellow aquarists. I haven't posted anything for quite some time now, and especially not about my own tank. So I thought I'd make a return by starting a new thread about my old 50 gallon tank, which is just over a year old, as things stand. I'll edit the thread as I change things and remember things that should have been here in the first place.
The reason I decided to start a new thread is because the tank has undergone a few major changes recently, which include the removal of many plants (half of which died after a temperature increase last summer), the placing of additional pieces of wood, and of course, the introduction of a host of new plants. The plants in question are adapted to living in low-light conditions, and include various types of Anubias, Cryptocorynes and aquatic ferns.
The fish have, for the most part, remained as they were, although I have added a good number of harlequin rasboras and two unidentified plecos.
And so, without further ado, tank parameters:
Volume: 50 gallons
Lighting: 30 watts flourescent (Juwel Day-Lite. Approx. 6,500k)
Temperature: 26C (80F)
Water change: 50% weekly water change
Also, feel free to ask questions and post recommendations on anything.
