A few tank pics

I thought I would post a couple of pictures of my tanks. These tanks are both works in progress and had been neglected for a while, but they are starting to grow in and look okay. The first tank is my 20 gallon long that currently houses 5 gold barbs, 6 neon tetras, three algae eating shrimp and four bn pleco fry. I'm using this tank to learn more about CO2, fertz and lighting (hopefully). I just planted ludwigia repens, some bacopa and a bunch of scarlet temple that I'm hoping will fill in soon....we shall see.

This picture is kinda random, but I like all the colors in it. The little pot has some of the mystery crypts in it that came off of the mother plants. There were around twenty of these little guys and I am growing them out to put in my new betta tank.

The second tank is my 75 g and it has 6 columbian tetras, 4 bn plecos, 3 dojo loaches, 2 nerites, 1 golden zebra loach and 8,000,00000,00000,00000 pest snails. Please ignore the random mass of moss and plastic plant on the left hand side of the tank. This tank will remain low-tech at least for the time being. Hopefully it fills in a bit more over the winter and I hope to find some low-tech plants that will grow to be large......going to have to work on that.

Well hopefully I will have some updates in the months to come. Until then, thanks for looking. :)

:o  Those tanks are gorgeous. :o   Makes me want to set up a third tank and do something like that but I just told myself this weekend "NO third tank".  That, of course, was right after water changes. :tomuch:

 

And that's a lot of pest snails. :rofl

Just get a five gallon tank and set it next to a window. You can put some house plants in it and justify it as a self-watering planter!! Of course it will be a planter with plants and fish in it, but let's not split hairs here. :)
