Hi everybody,

It has been a couple of years since I posted here. I hope you are all doing well! :)

I just started a new tank last Tuesday, which is quite a difference compared to my old 60l cube. The stand is DIY and was really a lot of fun to build 😀

Nice! I would also add a bunch of fast growing stem plants and floating plants to counteract the ammonia build up from the soil and to help stabilizing the tank while the other plants are growing. You can remove them afterwards if you prefer.

And good job with the cabinet! But how tall is it? I think I would need ladder to maintain your tank :)

Well, at the left back I have fast growing Hygrophila Siamensis 53B, so that will hopefully do the job 😀 Also, the Tropica soil will hopefully give less ammonia compared to the Amazonia soil I used in the past. Although the soil has a gradient from 4cm to 14cm, I only used about 15 liters, so that would also help I guess. (I used a foundation of vulcanic rock gravel in filter bags. That was also very useful for keeping the wood from floating! 😀)

At the right back, I have Limnophila Hippuroides, and I am really looking forward how that will grow.

The cabinet height is 93cm, so that is really perfect for my length (190cm) 😀 Sitting at my kitchen bar, my tank is perfectly at eye height 😀

Thanks, it is really fun to make one! 😀

This is how my tanks looks at the moment, hence after 2.5 weeks. So far, so good. Still strugging with CO2 a little. The Twinstar diffusor (large) does not seem to be able to reach the target 30 mg/l…

Looking good! Try moving the CO2 diffuser to the front right corner so it get a stronger hit from the filter outlet, it should get you better dissolution of the CO2.

Thanks! I tried to move the diffusor to the front right, but didn’t like the view. Today I moved it to the front left near my inlet and that seems to improve things. Since the bubbles are pulled downwards by the flow I seem to get a much better dissolution. Let’s see how that works out 😀
