First Post - Thought I'd share my tank
 
Hello,
This is my first post here and I figured sharing some pictures of my tank would be a good way to introduce myself. Currently I'm down to one, a 75g freshwater planted tank. I've got a 29 and a 30 that I'd like to set up as well, but I'm looking for a house now, so those will wait. Anyway, it contains the turqoise rainbows you can see, a couple siamese algae eaters(~5"), 6 kuhli loaches, and ~ 15 corydoras. I started with groups of 5 or 6 corys but attrition over the years has me down to smaller groups. It's been set up for 7-8 years and I haven't added any fish since the first year. Once I get everything moved I'll add some more. The tank has a power filter on the back and 160 watts of fluorescent light. Probably not the best for the plants but I'm happy with it, and it's simple. Also if anyone can identify the corydoras in the last picture (I know it's a bad picture) I would appreciate it. I've spent a lot time trying to figure out what it is.

Yeah, nice tank. Is it low tech? I can't see any diffussers for CO2 or any other stuff, unless you got it well hidden or injecting it inline to your canister.

Thank you everyone for the kind comments.

There's no CO2 injection and no canister. There's only an Emporer 400, which doesn't have carbon, just filter pads. When I do water changes I add Seachem flourish.

Yeah that tank looks nice. I think it needs a liger statue or something.

As far as the cories, it's hard to tell, unless you can get a clearer pic.

I knew it was a bad pic when I posted it, but it's the only one I have of that fish. I'd like to blame it on the fish moving, but I can't. The whole picture is blurry. The problem is the camera driver being incompetent. I'll try to get a better one at some point.
