29 Gal Tank NPT

[IMG][/IMG]

This is my 29gal tank that I set up a couple of days ago. First time for soil based tank. 2 inches of topsoil and a 1/2-1 inch of playsand in places. Rocks are from my local park river bed. Plants are from a local pond/aquarium greenhouse available year round.

Green hygro, cambamba, vallisinera, wisteria and water lettuce.

Right now only inhabitants are some cherry shrimp, mystery snail, and some MTS.

Marineland Penguin 150 Biowheel power filter- I removed the filter with charcoal filter pad and replaced with filter pad. I also covered the filter intake with a fluval 3inch sponge because of some very small cherry shrimp. [IMG][/IMG

I felt water output was too fast so rubberbanded a baffle to the front of the filter.

Aqueon Pro 100watt heater @ 78F



Feedback or questions welcome!

Update picture... I cannot believe how fast plants are growing. Added a few fish. I think I will use this as my plant tank and set up another 29gal that I just resealed as my sorority tank. Really loving the soil based tank.

It has been a week since I set up the tank. Going to do my first trimmings today. Everything seems to be growing well.
