Aeon's Low Tech 20
Had a 20g lying around that I wanted to do something with, and since I had an experimental canopy that I built to fit it I decided to give it a shot.
Here is the canopy design and build
Simple DIY canopy
For now I am using an air powered sponge filter I keep cycled in the sump for my 100g. This will be upgraded as needed. Substrate is black diamond blasting sand.
The hardscape for now is mangrove wood sustainably harvested by myself and prepared by soaking and bleaching.
I have added a couple plants so far but will be planting it fully over the next week. As of now I have Bacopa monnieri and jungle vals which will grow far too long for the tank. This will be replaced with a smaller variety I have growing in one of my ponds.
For now the tank is stocked with four young kuhli loaches. I intend to add a school of cardinals whenever I find any at the lfs. The loaches have made good use of the driftwood so far. I will update this journal as changes are made.
