I just recently had to move house and so took advantage of the opportunity to redo my 58 show.

Two years ago it looked like this:

A hurricane knocked out power to my house for 4 days and the angelfish died.

Now:





The tank currently contains 1 8 year old opaline gourami, 2 lavender opaline gourami offspring (only 4 years old), 3 otos, 2 kuhli loaches, 2 long-finned albino bristlenose plecos and 1 common pleco.

It is now running pressurized CO2 and will have more plants as of the 22nd.

Let me know what you guys think!

Looks really nice...What are you using to check the Co2 levels?

Right now I am just running a little CO2. I am in the process of getting a drop checker for when I change the plants and up the CO2.

Be sure when you purchase it you also purchase some 4dKH solution. The method of adding tank water to Co2 Solution is not an accurate method to indicate Co2 levels.
There is someone on Ebay that sells it.

I remember when I setup my drop checker and it never changed colors, I asked someone about it and they quickly pointed me in the true direction. Now when I up my Co2 it changes to a darker green but when I lower it it is a lime color green.
