  1. Hi All I'm currently working on a 40cm cube I want at least Medium lighting The 40cm depth with on 40cm of length has thrown me a little Does anyone have any lighting recommendations? Thanks
  2. Hi guys, It was about time I posted this in the right section. This gives you a good guide of what can be done low tech low maintenance set up. It does not have to be the bees knees and go all out on high tech gear. This is running co2 however could be achieved with the same results without co2 (only running at 1 bubble per two seconds and getting hardcore pearling after two hours anyway). So for those who think it is too hard, too expensive, or cannot be done then you need to think that anything is possible. This tank runs mostly crypts, mosses, needle leaf java fern and anubias. It is the easiest tank to clean and take care of (apart from the huge ass BBA outbreak thanks to Zanes Needle leaf). It does not need weekly or twice weekly trimmings, does not need any care what so ever. Can neglect the ferts for a week or two if you forget or do not want to and the plants do not mind. I have stopped dosing EI and have only been dosing flourish and flourish iron just because I had them left over and they need using and have not noticed any different to the growth. You can keep shrimp, apistogramma pair, and small fish such as my green neons happily in the one small cube so stocking is not limited. Enjoy; Apistogramma munching on a big cherry (good food source haha) Green Neon Tetras and Sparkling Gourami; Thanks, Adam
  3. Hi guys, Thanks to Adam at Aquascape Designs group buy of Aquatic Style 40cm tanks, I now own one of these babies. Set it up last night with Jeff (Daydream). This tanks theme is a mountain spring, and will be mostly using crypts, echinodorus vesuvius, crinum, anubias, needle leaf java, fissidens and mosses. The whole key is low maintenance while still keeping it looking amazing. Anyways on with the stats: Tank: Aquatic Style 40cm Cube Rimless and Braceless Opti-Clear Tank Filtration: Eheim 2213 (will possibly change to 2215 with 2217 impellor but for now will hope for this set up to be sufficient as the 2213 is a spare) Substrate: ADA Amazonia I Aqua Soil with a layer of ADA Penac P, ADA Penac W, ADA Tourmaline BC, ADA Clear Super underlying and ADA Iron Bottom tabs within the Aqua Soil co2: Aquascape Designs 0.82L bottle, Aquascape Design co2 Pro Series 2 Regulator/solenoid Package. Glassware: Cal Aqua Labs Nano Infusor, Cal Aqua Labs 13mm Inlet, Cal Aqua Labs Clip 'n' Drop Checker, ADA NA Thermometer Hardscape: Red Rock at Bonsai and Local Fish Shop on Gold Coast (Aquariums Alive), Collected Melaleuca from my "Stash" Plants: Crinum Calamistratum (Only putting in once the tank is cycled and the plant has matured more as it is currently growing in my 3 foot thanks Liverpool Creek) Cryptocoryne Willisii Cryptocoryne Wendtii "Red" Cryptocoryne Wendtii "Green" Cryptocoryne Wendtii "Mi Oya" Cryptocoryne Wendtii "Tall" Cryptocoryne Lutea Cryptocoryne Petchii Cryptocoryne Undulatas Cryptocoryne Walkeri Anubias Nana Petite Anubias Nana Hemianthus Callitrichoides Hygrophila Balsamica Bolbitis Heudelotii Needle Leaf Java Fern Sydney Mini Fissidens US Fissidens Peacock Moss Flame Moss Fish: 15 x Ruby Tetra (go in once cycled) 6 x Otocinclus (go in once cycled) 10 x Darwin Red Nose Shrimp (go in once cycled) 15 x Darwin Algae Eater Shrimp (go in once cycled) 20 x Cherry Shrimp (go in once cycled) Went from this: To THIS in under 2 hours: It has a LOT and a LOT of growing in as I did underdo the crypt order unfortunately and should of ordered ten times more crypts haha! I will soon have triple that in less than three weeks once Jeff rips his tank apart and all the crypts are mine!! For now enjoy and watch it fill in and look amazing MASSIVE PLUG goes out to Jeff (Daydream) for coming round and transforming this baby into something UBER SEXY and being such a perfectionist like myself haha and having such a quick sharp eye to work so quickly and produce amazing scapes (well it will turn into one for all you non believers at present time), and also for Jeff at Liverpool Creek for the EPIC stems in my other nano which will get an update tomorrow, and for the crypts for this tank. Thank you both!!!!! Thanks, Adam
