So, after playing around with my little 55ltr cube over the last 6 months, I've managed to get my hands on a second hand Rio 180. I did the move last week with a fair amount of ease and just thought I'd start a little thread going to document the tanks progression over the next few months as it matures and grows. It's a fairly simple set up, although I keep revisiting the idea of getting a proper CO2 system up and running... Currently the tank is running: - Fluval G6 filter - Origianl T8 light unit (upgrading to T5s end of this week) - Tropica liquid ferts, dosing weekly. - EasyLife easycarbo liquid CO2, dosing daily. The tank is softwater, hooked up to a 25ltr RO barrel with an ATO. Makes waterchanges so easy and quick, would seriously recommend getting an ATO to anyone with the room, even if you're on plain tap water. I will try and upload a quick FTS of my 55ltr cube I've just taken down to upgrade to the Rio, I had a lot of fun with this tank changing the scape a few times but, overall, I had great success with it and hope for similar results in this new tank! First post so be gentle with me, especially if I struggle getting the pics up! This is one of the last FTS I took before taking the tank down: I can't seem to embed an FTS of the Rio 180, file too big for the server... perhaps because I've already embedded the pic above which is c. 3mb, so I will try uploading in a separate post on the thread! [*edit* after a quick perusal of the tech help threads I think I've got it ] There's still a lot of work to be done. Haven't quite got as much sediment in yet as I want so will add that soon. Currently, I haven't added anymore plants/hardscape but, again, will do over the coming weeks!
