This is my newest tank. A (US) 75g tank, natural colored gravel with a river type plumbing system driven by two Aquaclear 301 powerhead. The heater is a 300W Rena Cal Toplight. External filter is a Fluval 404. Light is on a timer, two 40W flourescent tubes. Haven't put on the background yet. The stand is cherry with maple inside. The cherry was finished with Danish Oil and there is a 3/32 thick sheet of plexi on top for protection.
The flow rate isn't near Martin's river tank, but that's fine because I'm doing a warmer setup without hillstreams. The plan is 12 zebras, 10 tigers, 4 boita kubotai, 4 botia histrionica, and 1 RTB.
I picked up the java fern today, originally just two plants. I also got a mild shock this
