I have three tanks in my house now. 2-20 Gallon and 1-15 Gallon. The picture you see now is of my newest 20Gal. The tank is generously planted with Vallisenaria Giganticus, various crips, Annubias Bateri v. nana, Amazon Swords. The foreground is divided with large pieces of Mopani wood and some common driftwood. I fertilize the plants with a weekly regimen of Kent's plant food that is high in iron to bring out the beauty in the plants. Finally the tank is supplemented by a CO2 system I made from a 2L pop bottle, sugar, yeast and water. The tank is filtered with both an undergravel filter on a 301 Powerhead and a Dynaflo2 basket filter. The inhabitants of the tank include 2- Clown Loaches, 1- Whiptail cat, 1- Bushynosed Pleco, 5- neon tetras and finally the new neighbor is going to be a large Kissing Gourami. The fish are fed with two small feedings a day of flakes and every two or so days the bottom crew get a treat of Spirulina algae discs made by the Hikari company. The tank is pretty self-sufficient needing only to be cleaned once every two to three weeks. I hope you like it.
