Hey guys havent been on this forum in awhile. Just wanted to share some pics of my recent tank. feel free to suggest any changes to it. I dont claim to be an expert and ill be glad to hear some constructive criticism
100 gallon long (72"), 2 fluval 404s, t5ho lighting (468 watts with 12 blue moons at night, x6 6000k and x6 pink bulbs...i plan to change the pink bulbs to 6700k) 10 hours a day, co2 injected (just bought a kh test kit so not sure what the ppm is right now but its about 3-4 bps diffused via output hose with gravel tube attached) on a timer to turn off at night, flourite gravel, turbo twist x6 UVS, a whisper air pump (just for o2 exchange)
Current Dosing schedule Index method: (just started today seeing how it plays out)
1 tsp KNO3,
1/2 tsp kh2po4, k2so4, csm+b,
1/4 tsp cacl2, mgso4
Dosages done on M W F and Su* when 50-70% wc is done
I know im suppose to dose csm+b and kh2po4 on different days but i have a bad way of keeping record which day i did them on.
Usually i only dose Kno3, kh2po4, and Csm+b but im trying something new since i have all the chemicals anyway
Fish: Checkerboard pigion discus, 18 tiger barbs, 1 glass catfish, about 10 aus rainbows, a few corys, 5 blood fin tets, 6 rasbora hets, 2 clown loaches, sail fin pleco (hes gona go once i catch him since hes not doing a good job at eating any algae :P)
Driftwood stacked in the middle, plants are mainly wisteria, and others too lazy to list/dont know technical names for them :P
Heres what tank looked like empty:
Then a few days later:
Then had problems with green water for 3 weeks then added the UV and it was amazing.
(im assuming the tank didnt cycle all the way and i had added tons of fish even though my filters came off of a 55 gallon planted tank that cracked, i just moved everything over)
2 days after i added the UV (took 2 days, some people say within hours but i guess that depends on your filter)
Ill get more pictures up soon.
