my new tank
Posted 07 April 2008 - 10:10 AM
After a cracked tank, a replacement that leaked, and a bad infection I missed in quarantine which wiped out most of my fish, the tank is actually running. Still on the filters from other tanks and spares. Haven't got the sump to work properly yet!
Resident so far are 2 rusty plecs, 8 midnight cats, 2 clown loaches, 2 pakistani loaches, 8 rainbow fish, 2 hoplos, loads of livebearers, 3 brochis, 10 cories, 2 bristlenose, 8 african red eyed tetras, 5 yellow rasboras, 6 scissor tails, and a few others I can't remember. Some will be removed when the synos and talking cats go in. Plan on more wood cats and more doradids.

The problem is the pump is too powerful. It runs the section dry. We are going to take one of the dividers out and raise it so more flow can get through. Hopefully that will improve matters. Otherwise we will have to set up some sort of partial diversion to the sump tank. At the moment we are using the pond pipe black flexi ridged but will plumb in something permanently and also I want to add a uv sterilizer but will have to put it on a lower flow diversion....
Any advice gratefully received!

I haven't had any algae problems with my other tanks out there so hopefully all will be well.
