    Ok...I’ll be first again but others please join in so this can be a true contest.

    This tank is a 20G long with a Penguin 200 Bio-wheel filter. Substrate is black sand. Temperature is kept at a steady 75F. Inhabitants include neon tetras, green neon tetras, glo light tetras, guppies, platies, and a bristle nose pleco ( which lives inside the trunk of the tree). Other inhabitants are Malaysian trumpet snails, pond snails, and ramshorn snails. Plants are Anubias, anacharis, banana plant, and amazon sword. Parameters are 0, 0, 10. Tank is cleaned weekly using a Python vacuum and a 70% water change is done. My choice for water conditioners is Seachem Prime. I feed New Life Spectrum Small Fish Food, Ken’s Veggie Sticks, and frozen blood worms. This tank has been up and running about a year. Thanks for looking!

    This is my 5.5 gallon tank..current inhabitants are a bunch of Ramshorn and Malaysian trumpet snails.

    The tank is a derimmed 5.5 Aquaculture tank with an Azoo mignon 60 for filtration, and heated to 78F with a 50W Hagen marina heater, lit by a 6500k CFL bulb.

    Plant list: Bucephalandra ‘wavy green’, Hydrocotyle tripartita, Anubias Barteri, Anacharis najas, Frogbit, a few java fern rhizomes.

    Hardscape and substrate was all found locally in parks and rivers.

    Parameters are as listed:
    9 dGH
    6 dKH
    7.6 PH
    20 NO3

    I top off every 2 days and do a 50% water change on Saturday.

    I dose 2 pumps of Easy green once a week

    GL all!

    Voting has not started yet. Dascrow has to start a voting thread. Don't know why there is a delay.
