    Cool 29 Gallon High-Tech planted/Guppy Breeding tank


    0 Not allowed!
    I am 16, and fish tanks are my hobby. I put a lot of money into these tanks and they are my babies. I have done quite a few changes over this Break. I turned it from a low-Tech moderately planted tank to a high-tech heavily planted tank with Dwarf Baby Tears. I currently have 8 fancy guppy pairs and they have all successfully bred. I am going to add 30 RCS and 2 albino long finned BNP's. Here are the pics of the before and after the transformation.
    Before:photo 1.jpgphoto 3.jpg

    I was not very happy about the plant load, or the aquascape. I decided to take the tank to the next level. I got Pressurized CO2, Zoomed 30 inch quad T5HO lighting, and some harder to keep plants.photo 1 (2).jpgphoto 5.jpgphoto 3 (1).jpg

    I will keep you posted as I add some more critters. I am also going to try to get some Ludwigia Cuba to replace the Jungle Val on the right side.

    I wouldn't say that was heavily planted...yet. Can't wait to see what it turns into after a few months though! You could do with some hardscaping in there to give it a landscaped feel don't you think? How about a couple of nice pieces of wood?

    I agree that some hardscape is desperately needed. I have tried driftwood and a couple other types but I cant find any i love other than some Laced Rock...only 2 dollars a pound at my LFS!! I might need to grab 3-5 large pieces from there and get it going in here. The tank is going to be great once the plants fill in, I should have said high plant load, not heavily planted.

    What's the difference? I've not heard that term before.

    I guess what I am trying to say is that there is a high Plant:Fish ratio in the tank due to the fact that I only have 8 adult guppies in terms of fish. The plants make it a much healthier environment for the fish.

    You're running Co2 and a lot of light. What fertilizer are you feeding the plants?
