jaw dropping, man. real good job. What are you using for lighting. filtration. what are you planning on putting in it. also whats your substrate, black sand, are you using CO2 and what kind of fertilizer

MKSII 01-19-2008 01:15 AM

I guess I left all that stuff out, whoops.

Filter - Eheim 2180, dual inlet, one outlet, built in 500 watt heater, canister

Lighting - 72" ORBIT 4X96W SUNPAQ W/LUNAR & FAN - Dual Daylight (10,000K & 6,700K), Dual Actinic (460nm & 420nm) and Lunar Light

Substrate -'s own: Freshwater Planted Aquarium Substrate

No CO2, at least not yet. Since the plants have been put in a week ago, the giant sword and the javas are starting to reproduce, and the anubius' are already starting new sprouts. The only fert. I used was Flourish once so far.

That tanks pretty nice. Ok here are a few more questions.
How much was everything total?, if you dont mind me asking.
How many buckets of that substrate did you use?, and whats it like, how do you like it so far? The lighting, Where did you get it and how much was it?

Money - hmmmm..... a lot :lol: Filter $399 from (free shipping) ; Lighting $499 from LFS in Sacramento, CA (about the same price as on-line) ; 3 buckets of substrate ; tank and stank and lids $899 out the door from different LFS ; Plants are from too, arount $150-200 ; Driftwood and rocks $200+
