I have had this tank up and running for a few months. I thought some others might enjoy this different styled tank.

Check out this flower from the Aponogeton boivinianus.


Here are some set up pictures.


- Two Aquaclear 802's run through a return manifold


- 60 Gallon with river rock, back quarter of tank- flora base with florite on top.
- Milwaukee Co2 regulator w/ph controller, DIY Co2 reactor in-line with the Eheim.




- Aponogeton boivinianus, Bolbitis, Cryptocoryne balansae, Hygrophila difformis, Microsorum pteropus Windelov, Vallisneria americana(natans).





River Tank with Aquaclear 802s & 301 w/Venturi, Eheim 2236, DIY Co2 in-line reactor, Milwaukee ph controller & regulator.
- Apon boivinianus, Bolbitis, Crypt balansae, Microsorum Windelov, Vallisneria americana, Crinum calamistratum, Nymphaea zenkerii, Riccia(floating), Anubias barterii.

I will take some new pictures in the next day or two... but here is what is happening with the tank now.

The boivinianus has died back and I am going to pull the bulb. The Bolbitis and Cryptocoryne balansae have gone crazy along with the Val.

The Manifold just returns the water from the 802's... I guess it is pushing/pulling around 800 gallons an hour. The return does not go all the way to the back or side, but is about 12 inches from the left hand side and about 6 inches from the back.

I placed a layer of peat, then Flora Base and finally flourite on top. This is on the left hand side of the tank(no return area). I also have Flourite and flora base along the back where the Val and Nymphaea zenkerii are planted. Large gravel and the small rocks are on top of the return and in front of the power heads, basically where no plants are. I also have an Eheim canister filter with spray bar running. The water return for the Eheim is on the left hand side with the spray bar above the power heads on the right.

I am not currently adding any ferts, just co2.

Hopefully I answered most of the questions.

Cheers, Whitepine

I ripped down the river tank last month and took a few shots of the water return manifold... check it out.
Its in pretty good shape for running for over 6 months.





I will post a few new pictures once the plants start to come back from the move.

Cheers, Whitepine
