this is my tank that has been running since april of this year.
72 x 24 x 25 standard custom made tank with centre weir incase i want to go saltwater later on. 10 mm thick glass. If not sure why it is 25 inch. wide just like them when i picked it up.
I have two fluval 404s
2 x 150 watt aquamedic oceanlights
maybe addding 3 x 130 watt PC Blubs 6500K to help with the algae and cooling fans for the hot summers over here but its a couple of months away yet
I have a pressurized system with the milwaukee regulator, bubble counter, needle value and electric solenoid, which runs into the aquamedic reactor 100o which is inline with the filters .I also have the sms122 ph controller unit to control it all for me.
Pondmaster 36 watt UVC unit connected in line with the filters.
I uses 8 bags of JBL's Aqua basics. I was going to get Eco complete from the States but it would of cost me about $500 AUD just for gravel and the LFS had this on special so i went for it instead, just had to get some extra bags of standard gravel to go on top.
The main idea of my tank was going to be a planted dwarf breeder tank, but currently all it breeds is algae lol, but im only learning and hopefully fixing that probl
My current list of plants in the tank is:
4 bunches of glosso
4 small anubias nana
2 Didiplis Diandra
2 Echin. cant remember the rest.
and a huge piece of driftwood with different anubias and crypts on it.
My stocking list at the moment is
2 pairs of german blue rams
2 Electric yellows in a temp stay with they new tank gets build, they were getting pick on by the rest of they colony so i moved them
2 common bristlenose
4 peppermint bristlenose.
