iam_koi's Planted Aquarium 35 gal
I am a newbie for planted aquariums. but fish keeping is not new to me and my family. we used to sell tetras before, bred them in lengthwise barrels in our garden. but since my dad past away we haven't got a single aquarium.
now, inspired by my younger brothers red ear slider turtle tank (40 gal). i ventured on a new journey, planted tank has always been my dream.
after 2 months of reading and researching, here comes my 35 gal tank, this tank serves as a divider between the living room and the dining table.
i live here in the Philippines, plants are not readily available on our part of the island so we have to go out and do trekking and plant hunting.hehehe
here's my tank (35 gal):
Eheim 2215, 2 55W PL lights, garden soil and riversand substrate, as of the moment DIY CO2, AGT is still under repair.
tank is a month old. no fertilizers yet, only CO2 and lighting.
suggestions, comments, etc. are highly appreciated. :)
well done,you have a really pretty tank. :)
what fish are in there ?
thank you so much willow. :D so happy to hear that.
as of the moment, its the home of 10 juvy lampeyes, 1 honey gourami, 3 SAE, 4 flying foxes... ramhorns and malaysian trumpet snails. :)
i like putting more honey gouramis...i love the color. but it's not available yet on our LFS.
Your tank is looking really lovely iam_koi! I see you have some small plants in the foreground - could you tell me what they are? One of them looks like it could be mini-hairgrass, but it's hard to tell from the picture.
yes, my glossostigmata are still young and crawling.hehehe at the center, there are dwarf hair grass(Eleocharis Parvulus) and bunches of HC(Hemianthus micranthemoides).
Sorry my pictures are a bit blur and no micro shots yet.
No probs :) The way you have it planted gives a very nice effect, and once the foreground plants start to spread a bit it'll look awesome!
Thanks for the plant info and please post updates as it comes along! :)
thank you.. :) :oops: (blushing)
i will post updates from time to time... im excited that glosso would fill the foreground. yeah, it would look much nicier.hehehe
thank you so much.
i would just like to say that no matter what part of the globe you are, planted tank is possible. you just give your heart into it. :wink:
added flora and fauna... updated tank.
your tank looks absolutly STUNNING!!!!!! i wish i could make mine look that nice! i love the blue betta too. what kind of fish is in the last pic?
there are a lot of equipments, plants, foods, fishes, etc. readily available there in the states compared here in the philippines.
the fish on the last pic is a sunset gourami. i have 4 in the tank and they look awesome with their red and blue color. :)
Thank you very much for appreciating my tank... go, start planting... :wink:
here's a closer look of the sunset gourami on my tank.
