    Default Lp's 20g long fry tank


    0 Not allowed!
    Okay guys and gals, I've acquired the 20g long tank I bought from CL. This was the $35 setup I talked about in this thread.

    I got more than was listed in the sellers decription, including stand, tank, filter (AC200), lid, light, air pump, heater, powerhead 300, thermometer, magna-float, power strip, and extension cord. I was less than impressed with the condition of the tank; heavily scratched, and hardened/deteriorating silicone, made it iffy at best. So I called my lfs, and luckily they had one 20g long left in stock for $38. So I'm down $73, but still a great deal...and I got a brand new tank! :)

    I've set up and cycled the tank, and stocked it with six pearl danios to keep the cycle rolling. I decided on black substrate, and I added a row of jungle val across the middle. I plan on taking the holding cichlid out of the 55g and putting her in this one until she spits, then placing her back in the 55. I should have no problems with the fry or re-introducing her back into 'society'

    This is where you can track my progress.

    (pics are forthcoming)
    150 gallon - red shoulder severum, gold severum, vampire pleco, gold nugget pleco, bush fish, clown loaches, botia loaches, mbuna cichlids, and a few others

    55 gallon - mixed african cichlids, and one anguilla rostrata

    20 gallon long - planted, 21 pseudotropheus demasoni fry

    10 gallon - heavily planted, 1 male betta, 3 harlequin rasboras, 2 zebra danios, & 2 rummy nose tetras

    5 gallon - planted, 1 male betta, 3 harlequin rasboras, 3 panda corys, and 6 cherry shrimp

    Here's the finished product. I didn't want too much in the tank, but at the same time I needed something there. I like the way the black substrate contrasts with the plants, imo it gives it a nice clean look.



    I am waiting until this weekend to put the holding cichlid in, she should be ready soon after that.


    Thanks NG, I agree the price was right, and the old tank would make a sump now wouldn't it?
