Rams get their own place!
1 Attachment(s)
It's time to give our blue rams a more appropriately sized home. They are currently in a 10 gallon planted with an AquaClear 20.

All plants, decor, and equipment is moving over. I will have to get more substrate. I was browsing sources for garnet sand and found this gorgeous stuff, but I would need to put something more plant friendly under it. I'm debating eco complete.

Just got a pretty Current Satellite Freshwater Pro LED light.

I'm looking at either a 20 long or 15 gallon. The limiting factor is the stand.

This feels weird to type, but I'm having a hard time with the background. I'd love to do something that can hide the heater. Does anything like that exist?

I'm very much looking forward to planfully putting together a tank for the first time.

Edited to add: this tank will have CO2.

Okay but seriously I have read a boatload on fertilizers and.... I just can't figure out what the best thing to do is.

It makes me think about when my daughter was born and I did all this research and just felt like screaming at the internet, "There has to be a best car seat!"

Even Tom Barr doesn't have a straight answer.

Moonlight with the Current Satellite.

I love this light, but this one is meant for the 29 gallon. I need a second light now.

Tomorrow I'm getting the new tank and the eco complete. Get those roots buried.

Had to laugh about the thought that there must be a "BEST" X thing.

Also like to research and feel like I will spend the $$ in the right and BEST way!

But not always that easy, boy oh boy!

Personally a big fan of Garnet sand. You can get it from a number of local places.

Looking forward to seeing the new set up progress!

Oh no! What a world! What a cruel, terrible world! The 15 gallon regular isn't included in the dollar per gallon sale, so I just had to get the 20 long.

I need a centerpiece.

So I filled it 1/3 and planted things. Filled it the rest of the way, and several things came up. I'm going to have to replant.

This is the 29 gallon light, just so I could take a picture.

I've ordered a Nicrew LED.

Ah, darn! But so much room for $20!

Fast Sparkles refusing to pose, but look at how beautiful she is.

Is she a little too skinny?
