What I need to know: is a rio 2500 powerhead too much for this tank?
It's 36 x18 x18 inches.
I have a penn plax Cascade 1000 that's rated for 100g. It's currently on the other 48" 55g.
I went on a cross country road trip with 2 of my daughters this summer and collected some sand from Lake Superior, some wood, and round river rocks from just about every stream/lake/river we encountered.
This is sort of a remembrance tank.
"We dance around in a ring and suppose, while the secret sits in the middle and knows." -Robert Frost
Seeded with biogunk from the 40, and not too cloudy for the first hour up.
Pirated some java moss and snails from the daughter's tank, and the wood has been soaking in the other tank since august. Added some boiled oak leaves because the tank just looked so bare I couldn't stand it.
And my favorite stone from the trip. No idea what it is, but it is so smooth it almost feels soapy. The snails seem to like it, too.
One of these days I'll figure out how to get decent pics, but for now, this is iit.
Here's a few.What fish are you planning to have in there?
JD's "Cronies". Been together for 12 years or so.
And one of the posse of 5. This one tries to attach himself to the yoyo cronie. The poor cronie does not know what to do with him.
Another posse member.
The yoyo solo. He's pushing 7 inches TL.
The clown solo. About 6".
The SAE. About 5"
Had a little mishap in the car on the way home and I think his dorsal took a hit. It should heal up on it's own, I hope.
There's two Sinibotia pulchra in there as well, along with my nasty single male angelfish. The yoyo put him in his place right quick.
That's a lot of fish to add all at once so I'll be keeping a careful eye on the tank for the next month. It's got a bioloaded sponge from the 40 which has a fat catfish, 3 clowns and formerly the angelfish.
JD also gave me some lovely plants so the tank is not looking quite so bare. Now if I can only keep them alive...
I love the red sand from Lake Superior! It's primarily on the left side of the tank on the top layer. The rest of the sand is also Lake Superior (I think). It's recycled from the substrate the tank had previously. I just sifted out the stones.
