    Default Jenn's 56G Column Tank


    0 Not allowed!
    This is my first "real" tank in the house and consequently it is not in the fish room, thus it will have its own journal. The space had originally been intended for a 75/90G however I purchased couch which wound up taking up more room than I had intended. Thus I wound up with a space of 34", this is about the largest functional tank for the space. Plus the cube like shape does look nice...I am so far quite pleased with how the tank is shaping up.

    Filtration: Rena XP3
    Lighting: 130watt Coralife(freebie from storage)
    Substrate: HTH Pool Filter Sand(Ace Hardware) ~50lbs
    Hardscape: Some awesome wood courtesy of Chad Ramsey on PT.net
    2-3" Smooth black Riverstone in the front
    Softscape: Jungle Vals along the back wall
    Heating: 1x300watt Hydor Inline, 2x100 watt Fluval E heaters for backup and to avoid cold spots
    Additional Circulation: Koralia Evolution 550

    Livestock: 1 Pair of Wild Type Discus...I may go with domestics, however they will have a more natural look. I also may start out with 3-5 younger discus if I cannot source a mated pair. 24 tetras...unsure what species, am open for suggestions. 2-3 BN plecos, 12 Corydoras sterbai.

    And here is the initial photo...tank has no water but by golly it has a hardscape


    Oh and yes...I will be adding a background; black of course. But for now you get to enjoy my grey wall.

    Wow. that's going to be gorgeous. The driftwood is stunning. You know way more about fish than I do but I do remember someone telling me once that you had to be careful with driftwood and discus and not have any sharp pieces that they might ram into as they can get pretty skittish and take off without looking where they're going. Just thought I'd share that.
    Can't wait to see this tank filled :o)
    30 g FW planted:corys, ABNP, blue angel, harleys, zebra danios, nerites & mystery snails
    15 g FW planted: crown tail betta, neons, snails

    Nice looking drift wood

    Can;t wait to see this tank set-up and stocked
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Nice wood indeed. Tetra.. try something slightly different maybe, black neons?

    I get not much idea from scale from this picture. Will there be enough room left for the discus to swim?

    I would go with Cardinal Tetras.

    Can't wait to see it all set up! Your tanks are always amazing Jenn.

    Cardinals would be nice, or maybe something a little different like Black Neons.

    EDIT: LOL Dutchie I didn't even notice your comment since after I posted.
