29g tank updates (8/10/07)

I've been talking about it and asking questions for awhile now....and I finally setup my pressurized CO2 system! It was about time! I want to thank everyone that has helped me on here and show a picture of my tank since I've redone it.

I will eventually have pressurized on 3 tanks....but for now (until my other parts arrive), its just on my 29g. I have a regulator/solenoid from Rex Grigg and a 20lb tank which should last me awhile.

My 29g now has 130w of PC light, Eco Complete substrate, glass diffusor, and lots of new plants.



The plants still need to grow in...especially the Narrow Leaf Java on the wood. The wood looked really big in the tank at first (still does), but hopefully when the Java fern grows in and I replace the moss (what's on there is almost dead), it won't look so big.

Thanks everyone for the help and advice!

Very pretty, tank looks great. Nice and healthy. You will love pressurized. Need a bit more C02, turn the needle valve. A bit less, turn it the other way. It's that easy. You will wonder why you didn't do it sooner.

Just beautiful. My "plants on driftwood" projects always look like someone stuck some plants on driftwood...yours look like they grew there.

Great work--

Well, I have a new picture, but nothing much has changed.



I trimmed the Bacopa, but will have to trim more soon. The E. triandra is filling in nicely. The Alternanthera looks soo good now. It loves the higher light and CO2. I replaced the Taiwon moss that was on the driftwood with Peacock moss. The Taiwon was dying for some reason and had alot of clado algae growing in it, so it had to go.

I'm still working to get my CO2 at a good level. I have alot of algae (fuzz, some BBA, and some cladophora), so I'm trying to figure out how to get rid of them. I am dosing my ferts using the EI method, making sure i dose every day, alternating micros and macros, so hopefully things will get in order soon.

My plants are doing some pearling, so they much be happy!

L. aromatica (I love this plant!)



Narrow Leaf Java Fern (sorry, not so good of a picture)

Plants look a ton healthier. Much more colorful. Especially the larger red plant(name?) on the right.

Thanks! I liked the driftwood at first, but it was really too big for this tank and kind of shadowed some of my plants, plus it took up some planting room. So, I wanted to try it without the wood and I like it alot better (and so do my plants ). I may eventually add another piece of wood, maybe some branches if I can find some that I like.
