I just got a new 50 gal. The 75 gal christmas tank was supposed to be for a new setup but I decided ( with a little help from my friends) to spread out my existing stock into more suitable size tanks. I'm filling it tommrow to start cycling. We can watch our tanks mature together!
Well plans have been kept simple it's a 10 gallons got it from a co-worker his son's goldfish passed away after 5 years so kid didn't wanted any more so far I'm planning to paint the background either a solid black color or I may just try different tones of blue ending on white that would be if I want to complicate things ( as I usually do) for plants I'm planning in a couple of moss walls on each side some African green hygro cambomba or bacopa and a lily in the center and of course my favorite the red root floaters
FFiltration I really trust the hang on back filters so I guess I'm keeping the one it has an aqua tech I think is the brand 5-15 or I have a cascade filter too I'll try both to see what fits better
Lights have been a debate between LED or fluorescent I think I can afford LED that would grow plants for this size but I trust fluorescent
Fish has been a debate too I've heard about the sparkling gouramies which look pretty and the rainbow fish ( a specific that would do fine in my tank) something for sure red cherry shrimp I have an order on hold with one of the forum members until it weather gets better si I guess I have plenty of time left
I wish I have a fish room another co-worker is offering me a 55 gallons tank but I live in a second floor not sure if I want all that water concentrated here and so apartment wouldn't look like aquarium but I have them in places where they become part of the design ( thanks to girlfriend :) )
So far all I need it's time I've been working like crazy I'm not sure if I can fill soon but I'll post a thread on the journal for sure
You should do the same I would love to follow that tank Posted via Mobile Device
