Boredomb's Planted Tanks
This is my Puffer tank. Its a 29 gallon tank that is a little over half way full of water due to some plants I am trying to grow emersed.
Yes that's an Angelfish. I will get to that in a moment.
First some pics of the plants.
From left to right
Crypt Wendtii "red", Java moss, a dwarf sword (forgot the actual name), some more Java moss, and a small peace lily (I grew one of these years ago in a frog tank once. It gets huge yes I know.)
My Dwarf Sagittaria that is taken forever to grow!
Dwarf water lettuce
My different Anubias.
Some more Anubias. I really like Anubias so I have some different types.
Finally This last pic is of my 55 gallon before it failed. Attachment 67965 This is the tank I had 5 beautiful Angelfish in. Fungus exploded in it from some wood and killed all but the one Angel you see in my puffer tank. I put it in that tank as it is the only other tank I have running. I torn down my 55 to redo it with the hopes to getting it back up and running so I could move my Angel back. Well I decided it was going to be more work then I can take on right now plus funds are a little low. So I have decided that the 55 is going to be down until after the Holidays and probably till spring. So I am going to re-home the Angel as its not in a big enough tank for it.
P.s. Sorry for bad pics!
you have to be careful because remember angels are schooling fish and if your angel cant do that it may get nippy with your puffers.i think you would be better off to copletly tear down your big tank and fill it with water and have the filter running with the angel in it.but every fish is different and maby your angel will get along fine with the puffers.
The Puffer is a Dwarf Puffer. The Angel is going tomorrow since this tank was just a temp. holding tank till I got mine other back together. That's not going to happen. So going to rehome it. I know Angels are shoaling fish. I originally had 5 four died.
The water lvl is lower because of the emersed plants I am growing. Some of them can grow submerged or emersed. Some can only grow with the leaves above the water.

Well my LFS agreed to take my Angelfish after I explained what happened and that I wasn't looking for store credit or anything just needing the fish to have a better environment to live in. :-( I am still sad that I have to get rid of it but its for the better!
im sorry to hear about your angel but your right its for the better.
I really like the look of that dwarf water lettuce! I like how the roots hang down.
I think I'd like some in the 220, but I'm worried it will block the lights from getting to my other plants. I only have T8 bulbs and it's a really deep tank.
Canadian, This is the first time I have had water lettuce. I also really like the looks of it. If you get some you could keep it thinned out in areas so the light can get through to plants that need more light. I don't know what kind of plants you have but if they are all low light plants you won't need to worry about thinning out the water lettuce.

Mine have grown like 2 1/2 inches in diameter! The roots go all the way to the substrate.
Thanks for the pic Gwen! I am hoping mine do that good!
