20 Long Community Tank

All right ladies and gentleman, I have upped to a bigger tank. If you know me, i've only done 10 gallons or smallers. But I decided to go for a 20 Long. I Love it so far. Its still in its cycling stage but with how many plants i have, Im getting barely any ammonia or anything haha. Silent Cycle i guess.

Anyway here my equipment

4x18Watt T5 lights
2x Aquaclear 20 Filters
Marineland Heater
Co2 setup
Fertilizers of all sorts


Fish so far! (still adding every week so bioload doesnt out compete the bacteria)

6 Espei Rasbora
5 Ember Tetra
1 Endler Guppy
*Looking* For the right Betta (a nice one haha)

*If your curious on the plants let me know!*

*Future inhabitants*
40-50 Cherry Shrimp (I have these guys breeding like CRAZY in my other tank)
10 Crystal Red Shrimp (Love these beautfil Shrimp, One is pregnant right now in other tank)


Alright enough talk heres a front tank pic!



Close up of wood formation!




Anyway let me know what you guys think!

My male was full grown, but he had a really mellow personality and a LOT of patience for the fish that lived with him (the Cardinal tetras thought he was god and followed him endlessly and the corys would swim into him or land on him ) He was the best betta ever, and I haven't found one like him still. (the one in my avatar)

So that pic of the tank was when i First set it up. Since then my carpet has been spreading very very fast. My guess in the end of this month, you wont see any substrate at all. I'll post pics frequently!

Update Update Update Update

Its been about a week since the tank was started and already crazy growth! My Moss Is Almost completely covering my Branch Wood and you can see all the runners I have on my carpet Plant Glosso. I'll have a carpet in no time! Slight algae problem but i've been workin on it!

Oh and I also have some Tropica 049 Plant coming in. Super pretty plant. Grows like a stem plant but only gets about 2 inches tall. Good for displaying different heights in a tank!

Sorry about pics! Girlfriend took the camera for the weekend!
