    amphirion's 6 gallon project...

    starting a new tank, working with something bigger. 3.5 gallons bigger than the last to be exact.
    this is going to be more of a fish thank than a planted tank, but a planted tank never the less. i made this thread to share with you guys the progress of how i make my tanks. you'll be pleased to know that i plan on growing CPs in this tank as well

    so here's the schematics:
    flora:
    Anubias nana "petite" [Apparently the ICRA for Anubias has not recorded this cultivar in its database - http://www.aroid.org].
    Fissidens fontanus
    Utricularia biloba
    Utricularia nephrophylla

    fauna:
    Rhadinocentrus ornatus from Teewah Creek
    Rhinogobius zhoui

    and here's the progress so far:

    Good looking tank so far. Let us know how that filter works out, I bought one a month or so ago and its still in the packing waiting for me to use it.

    How are you planning on using U. nephrophylla? I've never tried to grow it submerged, I know it will grow like a weed on the waterline.

    thanks guys
    @talie: rocks were bought online.....go flat priority mail boxes!
    @RSS: biloba will probably be semi submerged but mostly emmergent. nephrophylla will be mostly emmergent.

    I'm typically not fond of scapes with so much rock, but I actually really like this one. I'm excited to see it's progress. Subscribed!

    here's some more pics....because i aim to please, lol.
    please excuse the cloudy water---im in the process of cycling the tank, so it's going through a massive bacterial bloom. no fishies are harmed though---because im using the fishless technique.

    whole tank (so far)
