    75 gallon planted tank journal.

    January 10 2019 continued The pothos decided to drape behind the tank. This is how I keep any fish from eating the delicate pothos roots, it is a floating breeder net which uses air trapped in the handles to stay afloat. I’d recommend it as it has a variety of uses. The silver dollars...

    January 10 2019 A shrub like plant which later ended up dying. 4 pictures showing new growth on the pothos, some of which are red. A grass like plant which is still doing good. An overhead view of the plants in the aquaclear 70 Showing how big my original arrowhead plant had gotten. The...

    75 gallon planted tank journal.

    November 17 2017 From left to right we have an umbrella papyrus (died due to my stupidity), an arrowhead (alive), a “purple mystery” (died), another random purple plant (also died), and finally a piece of the lotus bamboo that broke off in the shipping box (also died). It took a while but the...

    November 6 2018 Here was a quickly drawn rough draft plan of a stand I had in mind. (This idea would later be discarded for an easier idea I had which I’ve yet to implement.)

    75 gallon planted tank journal.

    November 5 2018 An arrowhead plant I got from walmart and a random “purple mystery” plant I got also. The purple mystery remained a mystery as it died early on and I never took the time to figure out what its true name was.

    75 gallon planted tank journal.

    This is a journal for my 75 gallon tank I started a while back. I already started a journal somewhere else so I’ll just be taking the pictures and putting them here. I’ll post the date I posted the original pictures at the top.

    I actually have plans to get into sumps and such but not now as I am destined to move in a few years so I'd rather keep my fish situations simple and make it easier on my future self.

    Yeah, I don't know enough about stuff like that in general yet to really give any advice. All I know is that I'd try to attach an acrylic panel over that hole and just use canisters but that's because I like to stick to the things I know.

    Lower 10 gallon Betta tank

    Ok man, also I don't think I'll be able to get a picture of my tank today. Kinda wasted the day and my phone is going slow so it would take a while to get the picture uploaded on my phone :/.

    Is it possible to see a picture of this tank so I can see what you're talking about?

    Perhaps you could have the cinder blocks in the middle and some wooden supports on the outside. Like make a rectangle and have it fit very snugly under the plywood so it would add support across the edges. Would something like that work you think?

    While I may not know what exactly is going through your head I do know that cinder blocks have 2 quite large holes, could you perhaps make use of said holes?

    Lower 10 gallon Betta tank

    And you think that the cinder blocks or the plywood would hinder access to it?

    Lower 10 gallon Betta tank

    I'm not very familiar with overflows but I have a general idea that they are holes drilled into the tank on the side or on occasion on the bottom of the tank I believe. Am I correct?

    "Bit more sturdy", cinder blocks are very sturdy. I could run full speed into my 75 gallon that only has 12 cinder blocks (2 blocks across and 3 high on each side of the tank) and that stand wouldn't budge. If you completely fill the space below the tank with the blocks then I guarantee you that...

    Lower 10 gallon Betta tank

    I actually know of a cheap strong stand that literally anyone can get set up. It's not pretty itself but it does the job and you can make it look better easily. It's simple some cinder blocks and some plywood.
