Our 60L Tropical setup

Postby Marc » Tue Feb 09, 2010 10:20 pm

I had alot of baby Malawi's spare, so i traded them in to setup this tank for the missus.

With my credit i got 3 bags of the black glass type gravel, £15 worth of plants ( Please feel free to name as many as you can). 1 meduim sized piece of Mopani. 2ft of black background and seaview to stick it on. Its oil base and safe. Link to video demonstration http://www.seaviewinfo.com/
Picture of the product.

Looks great. Keep a close eye on your shrimp (do you know what kind it is other than scavenger shrimp) they really shouldn't be added to a new tank.
Vasaline or baby oil works just as well as that seaview for sticking down the background and is a fraction of the cost.

Thanks everyone :)

I'm looking forward to see the plants grow, I've tied some have moss to the mopani so hopefully that will take off.

There's some other plants that seem to be doing well already like for example the ones at the front of the tank with the large lush green leaves- a few new leaves have come through.

The shrimp has been a bit naughty and killed one of the baby BNs-I found the shrimp eating it's head :0

Do you know what kind of shrimp it was, it is only the big clawed ones that you have to watch with small fish. Algae eating types will not touch fish -although they will make a good meal out of an already dead one.
If you've not done so already you want to enter the tank in the competitions :-): it really does look good :ok:
Keep your moss debris free by running your hand gently over it ever couple of days. Mosses easily get clogged with cr*p, and become algae magnets, the algae interferes with photosynthesis and they die.
Either that or make sure it is in a good flow area of the tank so any rubbish is swept away.
