  1. Default 5ft planted tank build


    0 Not allowed!
    I have an empty 5ft tank, been empty since may 'cause i didnt know what i wanted to do with it. So yep, i've now had some thoughts

    Tank: 5' x 20"x 18"
    Filter: Fluval 405
    Heater: 2x 300W
    Light: 2x 4ft T8
    Substrate: Propagating sand, Laterite, Marble chips, Blood & Bone, topped with course sand/or fine gravel.
    Hardscape: Goldvine/Wood I find myself & Rocks (gotta do a landscape crawl to find some i like)
    Plants: Crypts will feature big, other than them unsure
    CO2: Probably not
    Fertz: Maybe if needed
    Livestock: Unsure, will think about that closer to completion

    This will not be a speedy build, as i will be making a 3D background for the tank before anything else can happen. It will come together eventually, and i will update as things happens,

    Possible wood found, it will get some trimming to make it go where I want it. Gives you an idea on size sitting in the 5ft, the wood is approx. 4ft or just over. I do like the branchiness of it



    I may find something I like more, but this piece has potential

    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Dunno how to do that :)

    So a small update.

    Today I went and bought foam, thinking i'll need another sheet as I sorta want to come around the sides slightly. Also bought other thinner foam piece to help build up areas.
    Picked up some tubes of silicone, and the sealer.

    Tomorrow, think I will pick up the other piece of foam, and a tin of expandable foam. I can then at least start on the putting together and shaping

    If you want this in the Journal section, just send a PM to one of the MOD's.

    Doesn't worry me what section its in really. If the mods feels it should be elsewhere then so be it, otherwise it can stay
