Its been a long time coming but ive finaly started my cube tank up again. I decided whilst it was empty to treat myself to an Opti white glass aquarium (same dimensions). The tank size and the cabinet suit the lounge so this keeps the wife happy. An Opti white glass tank had to have glass inflo and out flow pipes (didnt it?) and a a glass diffuser to match which was all piped up with clear hose so now im a proper 'tank tart' Tank: 55cm x 50cm x 45cm (almost a cube) Lighting: 4 x 24 watt T5 Substrate : Eco complete Co2: Jbl pressurised Filtration: Eheim professional thermo 2228 The Tank - Decided to try Eco complete having read so many good things about it. Only thing i didnt consider was that with it being live I would have to work fast. Usually I like to take a week or so to get used to or tweak the hardscape. So not a lot of thought went into the layout and as a consequence im not happy with it at all at the moment. However I did have a nice peice of wood put aside and the plants were here so it had to be done. Plants include HC, Pogostemon Helferi and Rotala rotundifolia for starters Great quality and value @ Â£3.50 and Â£2.50 per pot HC all divided up and ready to plant - Like I say im not happy with the scape at all so expect this one to change, Not even sure I like the peice of wood any more I think it might be too big! maybe ive just looked at it for too long. Early days and ill be happier about posting a full tank shot once ive planted a bit more.
