Well, I can never keep a Q tank!
My 20 high is going to become planted tank # 6 in the house. (Ive had the tank for a long time, just used it as a quarantine tank)
Just ordered a HOT magum, 65 Watt CF
strip light, and another hagen diy co2
diffuser. Will get either Tahitian moon sand, or Eco-complete substrate, not certain yet. I want to look at them side-by-side, see which one looks best. I'm thinking the moon sand, it's jet-black and looks cool.
This tank will stay pure FW
, will put my new dwarf puffers in it once it cycles.
Then, next plan is for my 45 high in the basement. Goin brackish there with some other type puffers. Must do more research first, find out which species I want, and how much salt they need. I have found some lists of brackish plants, so the plan is to keep it light brackish, and still planted. I think this can be achieved.
If you didn't notice, Puffers are my new kick. I'm really enjoying the dwarf puffs, but they get lost in the 45! They'll go better in the 20, and I can get a bigger type puffer for the 45.
Planning, researching, and getting the supplies is almost as much fun as actually setting up a new tank, at least for me.
