The 40 gallon, now with proper lighting, post sand installation. What a dusty mess! The plants, etc need dusting and scraping again. I tried to capture the group do harlequin rasboras, but not with this phone camera.
Bottom photos are McKoi after his breakfast, so a lot less feisty wiggling.
Did too much work on the tanks tonight, which means my back is killing me and I am behind on Inktober! (Will be catching up if I work on nothing else for the next 6 hours, ha!)
Progress on the 40 gallon, top three photos: 8 (mostly invisible) harlequin rasboras added! They are settling in nicely.
Specs for 40 gallon:
Substrate: Eco complete, ST international aqua soil (hairgrass loved this stuff), floramax, and flourite black sand (soon!) plus bits of stupid plain gravel.
Lighting: 1 Finnex Ray 2, 30" LED fixture, additional 36" model pending.
CO2: pressurized, 10 lb canister, using Green Leaf Aquariums v3 regulator with solenoid, atomizing diffuser. Dispersed via Koralia nano circulation pump.
Filters: two aquaclear filters, sized 50 and 30.
Heater: Eheim jäger, 150 watt because cold climate.
Ferts: currently using seachem’s liquid ferts (NPK + iron and flourish). Will be switching to dry ferts and estimative index soon.
