hyp0r's 20 gallon
Well I figured I should start a new journal now that I have a new tank. Yesterday I setup a 20H gallon tank to replace my old 5 gallon tank. It's made by Aqueon, it's 24" x 12" x 16". I'm running a Fluval 205. My heater is a Fluval E Series 100w, which I'm sending back, I already ordered the 200w version. The 100w heater doesn't seem to be keeping the temperature stable. It's lite with a 24" Coralife HO Dual T5 lamp.
I got some 6700K lights today and installed those. Got some new plants from the LFS that I put in as well.
I picked up a piece of driftwood at the LFS that's on the stove. Will be putting it in the tank later tonight.
200w heater and top should be here on Friday. Once I get the heater I'll be adding some Neon Tetra to the tank.

Looks good! Can't wait to see it with the drift wood in it!
Are you just going to keep neon's and guppies in it?"Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex... It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction."

Check out this picture of my biggest guppy swimming through the knot hole in my driftwood. I gotta say that's an awesome piece of driftwood. And I almost didn't buy it because they wanted $20 for it! But I thought it looked so cool that I had to buy it. :P

Okay, today I added eight Harlequin Rasbora, thanks to ldoerr for talking them up so much. I was going to get Neon Tetra, but ldoerr kept talking about the Harlequin Rasbora so much that I had to get them. I also added 2 Oto's. I'm not sure if that's to much at once? I know the Harlequin Rasbora have a pretty small load on the system, I think the Oto is a bit higher but still not much. I'm keeping an eye on the parameters, hopefully my bacteria can keep up.
