Hi, this is my first post on this forum my name is Kent from Orlando Florida and Iím happy to be a part of your community. I am also still pretty new to the hobby but I've been learning a lot. I figure I should probably put some info about my tank here also.
I have a 60 gallon tall tank that measures 12.75"L x 48.5"W x 25" H. I have been running it for about six months it is heavily planted with two decent sized pieces of drift wood. Currently I have 2 otos, 2 dwarf gouramis, 2 banjo catfish, 6 nerite snails, 2 Siamese Algae eaters, 4 cherry barbs, 2 gold barbs, 4 platys, 2 turquoise rainbow fish, 2 Australian rainbow fish, 2 balloon mollies, 6 neon tetras, and 6 fancy guppies For substrate I'm using a Flourite cap over organic top soil. For plants I have a few amazon swords, melon swords(having trouble getting em to grow properly) hygrophila donít remember the species, anubias nana, Aponogeton ulvaceous, some jungle vals, and dwarf sag. I have a nat geo heater currently set to 80f I am also Injecting CO2
using a DIY set up.
I am currently running 2 Aqueon QuietFlow 55/75 HOB
filters with a flow rate of 400gph each. For lighting I have a 48 inch aqueon Modular led
unit with 2 daylight tubes and one colormax, and I recently bought a I purchased a Current USA satellite + pro 48"-60" LED
fixture (recently like 2 days ago) and I am now running it side by side with my aqueon Modular led
My water parameters in my tank arenít the best ammonia 0, nitrite 0, nitrate between 5ppm and 10ppm, kh
