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

Knuggs 04-01-2012 09:36 AM

Jayy 04-01-2012 10:44 PM

Wow beautiful tanks indeed!! Great aquascaping!

doki 04-02-2012 01:50 PM

this is amazing

Knuggs 04-04-2012 08:25 PM

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....

Knuggs 04-23-2012 10:05 PM

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.
