Planted tank video

Postby Tetracanthus » Sun Dec 07, 2008 4:17 am

I do not know if this where I should place this, I'll move and re post if necessary.
That being beside the point....

The specs are as follows:
Lighting-3 t-5s
Filter-1-H.O.T. Magnum
Heating-1-150w top fin heater
CO2-NIL
Aquarium- 36"Lx18"Hx12"D=33 us gallons
PH-7.8ish
Gravel- a mix 25% of each black and brown epoxy coated gravel and 50% laterite.

FISH:
9 Rasbora Trilineatua (Scissor tail Rasbora)
1 Rasbora Tornieri (Yellow Rasbora?)
4 Pangio pangio (Cinnamon loaches)
1 Epalzeorhynchus bicolor (Red tail shark)
1 Betta splendens (female white delta tail)
9 Puntius titteya (Cherry barbs)
X trumpet snails


Plants:
Crypts;
3 C. affinis
3 C. Balansae
6 C. Wendtii
1 C. Willisi

X Vallisneria Asiatica
2 clumps of Vesicularia Dubyana (Java moss)
4 bulbs of Nymphaea zenkeri (Red tiger lotus)

I keep the lights on for 8hrs to help keep the hair algae down, this would be easier if I added CO2 which I will in the future as I get the needed parts.
Feeding alternates randomly between Wardley crumbles, hikari micro wafers and frozen blood worms.
The video at the top, is the school feeding on crumbles.
The video below is them feeding on bloodworms.
Let me know what you think.

FYI: you may find the music contained here in to be offensive, you might want to kill the volume(I really like metal!)

Beautiful tank. Is your java moss clean? I like the way java moss looks but I tried it in my tank a few months back and it trapped all the dirt and poops so I took it out :mrgreen: . Out of curiosity, how did you end up with one Tornieri? Did it got mixed up when you bought scissor tail?

No my Java moss has lots of hair algae tangled in it, so I trim it from time to time.
The Torneri was in with the scissor tails, I wanted to keep him but didn't want just one lone Rasbora (I know they need a school).
I think I found a local supplier that can get me a few more @ $7 a piece (CDN).

Lovely looking tank :)

I really like the R. tornieri's, I did manage to get hold of 7 from different sources some years ago but have ended up now with only one left and I just cant get hold of anymore as from what I can gather they rarely appear on shipping lists :( He will just have to make do with the other single Myersi and Caudimaculata for company as well as the group of R. wilpita.

When I figure out all of the settings and get a tripod, I'll post something better.
In the meantime I'm going to get rid of all that val, to darn invasive!
May be more crypts, possibly wisteria (I know they get huge I saw one that took up most of a 20g!).
