    My 37 gallon in its full glory, the whole two year project (from the time I bought the tank at least.) I filled it a year and four-ish months ago, replanted a couple times, and finally got my plants to stay alive. The lfs I got my fish from has given me better quality fish than petsmart, so the troubles I once had with ich were never even started. I have a variety of crypts, swords, and anubias, and its stocked with a clown pleco, 8 black neon tetras, a bolivian ram, and 3 marbled hatchetfish. I will probably add more hatchetfish and a fee otocinclus at some point. The on-tank filter along with a sponge filter made for a 50+ gallon tank keeps the water conditions great.

    May I ask where you found your 37? I haven't really seen any even online that aren't completely over the top $$$$$$$$ expensive!

    Petsmart. It was on sale, I'm not sure for how much, but in the range of just over 100 bucks I think. I was able to buy it myself, so it shouldn't have been much more than that. I really like it, me and my dad built a custom stand for it. ImageUploadedByFish Lore Aquarium Fish Forum1438663468.512241.jpg

    Could you post more pics? And why is yours not filled up?

    It evaporates super fast and I refill when I do weekly or every-other-weekly water changes. I'm due for one in the next couple days, I'll show more pics after I clean it.

    Beautiful tank!

    Thanks Anders247. I tried and was super nitpicky about exact placements of everything... Exceptfor that floating anubias. My pleco has this thing for tearing up cotton string, so I can't get it to anchor, and my gourami likes having a floating plany anyways.

    My cotton string ended up giving out before my Anubis formed good roots anyways so you aren't really missing out.

    Well, I got two other anubias to form roots, but on the second my pleco realized he could tear string, so anything new is out of the question. :)
    Its not a big issue, just sort of an interesting comment.

    How long did it take them to get good roots? I want to try again, but I think I need to put a bit more effort in. Like trimming the roots to promote growth maybe.

    You could use fishing line? The pleco shouldn't be able to break that.
     
  14. NinjaTetraWell Known MemberMember

    Nah its not really an issue

    I have all my anubias in the gravel, and have never used the string+rock method.
