Finally some photos of the new tank.

As some of you may remember, my previous 20 gallon tank had a minor misfortune with a peice of pvc pipe and the resulting 2 inch hole it created. I purchased a 29 gallon tank, so I could still use the hood I made as well as the stand. Here are two pictures I took. They arent the best, but still getting used to my new camera and was a little impatient with it tonight.

I am running two stock 20 watt lights with a different bulb in them(cant remember what they are) xp1 for a filter, 1 bag of flourite mixed with regular black gravel.

Fish are 3 chinese barbs, 1 oto, 1 cory cat, 6 rasboras, and 14 glo light tetras.

My plant selection is slim right now, but more will be added later. I currently have 1 moneywort (started out as a 3 inch high plant, and is now about 3 inches from the surface), a 5 or 6 peices of anacharis, some of it is floating others are anchored in bed.

I am running a diy co2 system but I dont think it is working quite right.....

Nice tank!

Nice recovery as well.

What has your experience with the fluorite been like in terms of cloudy water? I'm considering using fluorite for my substrate but have heard that it can be a pain as it is hard to rinse. What do you think?

ps. the tank looks great!
