My 60 gallon Tank :)

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

I kept mentioning my 60 gallon tank in my posts but I just realized I haven't posted any pics or info of my setup... This is just in the raw basically, I'd like to add more plants to it and make it a little more lively. I just added some anubias nana gold to some river rocks and they really stand out in the tank, which I love. Anyone have any decor suggestions? I don't want to make it too crowded for my fish though, I love seeing them roam freely up and down the tank. I'm currently starting week 2 of fish-in cycle, had to go fish-in because my original 20g tank wasn't cycled yet and ammonia was getting really high because of the bioload of 4 goldies (result of bad advice from LFS).

This is the setup info:

Tank: 60 gallon 48"L x 24"H x 13"D

2 Penguin 350's

1 Whisper 60 airpump with an airstone disc and an airstone bar

1 Whisper 40 airpump with an airstone disc

Substrate: Carib Sea's Tahitian Moon

My goldies (all juveniles):

1 black moor

1 lionhead

1 red cap

*my oranda is currently in my 20gallon, aka hospital/QT tank*

Plants:

6 rhizomes Anubias nana gold on river rocks (should I add flourish?)

I want to upgrade my lighting to LED's thinking about getting Marinland's glass canopy and double bright LED's. Anyone used them? My tank gets really warm here because of the weather and I don't want my lighting adding more heat to it... I also want to eventually add an Eheim canister filter to add more biological filtration as the fish grow.

Any suggestions? Decor, plants ideas? They're very welcome :thumb:

And finally the Pics:

**Sorry about the look of the background, I had just done a w/c and apparently spilled some water through it! :photo: **

Very nice! I really don't think you need fertilizers for these few plants, considered there are four goldfish going to be in there :)

Looks great! You could add liquid carbon if you're looking for your anubias to grow quicker but I wouldn't add flourish since they're be plenty of nutrients for them to process from the goldfish. If you do decide to add more plants, you could always add half the dosage of flourish once per week. And if you choose to use the carbon I would suggest only half the recommended dosage as well. That's what I use and my plants are taking off.
