Knuggs Main Tank (Lots of Pics and Vids) (Currently Naturally Dutch)

My main tank has had many faces throughout the year the good, the bad, and the ugly. I figured it was about time I made a journal to better document my progression. So here is a old time line of my old tanks. Not the best pics but this is what I have been able to scavenge up. The 29g tank had pressurized co2 around the end besides the last 2 pics.


This was my first main tank that I started in 2007 it is a 29g. For more specs you can check out this journal: Journal of My First Tank 29g

No CO2 and tap water 2007



No Co2 and Tap Water 2007





Pressurized Co2 and RO water 2008



No Co2 and Tap water 2009








This is my current main tank that I set up in 2009. It is a 40g breeder.


No Co2 and Tap water 2009




No Co2 and Tap water 2010






This is what it currently looks like: Running pressurized Co2
I got a new cam :)

Im planning on redesigning it completely. I have some more colorful plants growing out in my fish room right now. Still not sure what Im gonna do with it. But it will be from scratch, still not sure what Im gonna do with all the crypts.

Thanks guys! Itrs been tough keeping my HC foreground down with all those fish, especially since there are 6 in Clown Loaches in there. Ive come to the terms it will be a everyday chore to replant until it grows out....

Heres some new pics :) I need to try and keep up on my trimming but getting hard to do. The plastic over the HC has been working well. I took some top shots to show the color a lil more. Not the best pics but better than nothing.
