  1. Default Lake Tanganyika Tank finally done! Now with video :)

    Well its been a long couple months, but she's done. Well ok, I do still want to swap the hob for a canister but thats it I swear. The layout and the stocking and everything else is done, now I just get to watch everybody grow.

    Finally specs and stock list are:

    Petco 29g Standard, DIY rimless
    Aquaclear 50 (to be replaced my EHEIM 2213 on Friday)
    200w Heater
    ZooMed 48w T5HO with individual bulb control
    Substrate is a mix of different aquarium safe sands, including some Aragonite sand.

    9 Gold Ocellatus
    1 Julidochromis
    20 White Cloud Minnows
    5 Nerite Snails
    some MTS

    2 Anubias
    1 Cryp

    I originally had a Calvus in there that I had to put in the big tank while the Occies settled in because he was being nasty. Now that they're settled and pretty nasty themselves I tried to move him back but he loves his new tank now and I cant catch him. So I guess no Calvus for now, which is ok because I think this stock works really well for the tank size and he fits in will in the big tank anyway.

    Anyway video here:

    Still not a videographer but its watchable. Drags a bit in the beginning but some good closeups start at 2:17 if it gets boring.

    As usual let me know what you guys think!

    Lack of planning on your part doesn't justify an emergency on my part.

    Gorgeous! The music was perfectly fitting. Gave it a very surreal feel.

    Thanks guys! I really need to take a new video. The tank is so much different now that all the fish have settled in. As far as the scape I added a bit more rock, removed the anubas, and added another cryp, but its basically the same.

    The tank has allot of aggression, as one would expect, but it appears I stocked it perfectly, with the amount of action going on no one gets to much attention. I have not lost one fish or seen one damaged fin.

    The Juli took over the entire rock formation on the right, he has that whole side to himself. If an Occie comes anywhere near it it gets chased with extreme prejudice lol. Never actually seen him bite one though. He did headbutt the Calvus once, but the Calvus seemed more affronted than hurt.

    Also added a bristlenose, he does his job well.
