Fantastic tanks!

Another ID question -- what's the spreading surface plant in the last photo? Reminds me of mozaic plant, but with round leaves.

Thanks Guys, Much appreciated!!

The floating water plants are...
water lettuce (Pistia Stratiotes)
Amazon frogbit (Limnobium Laevigatium)
and also Salvinia natans

All three are well recommended to help provide shade for your fish,help remove toxins and pollution from your water and help to beat algae problems..They all need good strong light but basically thats it and they are really easy to grow.

Heres how my tank looks now. This is my main tank which is in my living room. It is a Juwel Rio 180 and hold 180litres or 40gallons, although when the gravel and wood is in i estimate around 150 litres!!Unfortunatly when i removed the gravel for a change around this summer i scratched the glass pretty badly, i might get rid of this tank now and get a bigger one. Equipment is simple but effective, i will take some pics and show you around...

This is the Light units and external filter outlet, you can just see the CO2 ladder below. Yes i know im a tight arse for using tin foil as a reflector but hey it works...
Image

This is the internal filter that is supplied with the tank and the intake for the external..
Image

And this is whats stored underneath..Its not usually this tidy so your lucky a had a duster on it before taking pics :wink: I dont know whether to be embarrased about the amount of books and mags??? and this is only half of the magazines!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Im fine mate, im made up to be back online, posting on here. Everythings fine my end, iv been busy tonight doing water changes all round and moving a few fish, I setup a lot of spawning tanks this week so iv been watching fry break free tonight, iv got another 60-70 Celestials hatched, 100+ glowlight tetras, pencilfish(havent hatched yet and a new one for me (Danio nigrofasciatus) the dwarf danio.
They had an extremly small spawn though? i only counted 19 eggs and a few of them didnt make it?i got 10 fry tonight...oh well better than nothing.

Hey Ste, that discus tank with the Java moss and Java fern... simply beautiful!! Tx for sharing.

Why thank you very much for your kind comments..It is set up to be as easy to maintain as possible, it gets one largish water change every week and the filters only need cleaning every three months. The Java moss and java Fern are the simplest plants to grow, so i tend to sit back and enjoy the show after working hard in my fishroom..

if you decide to go for a new tank..take a look at some bowfront style..they look pretty sharp.. Here in the US the can be a little pricey but are worth it

Hi Ste2000,

What's that crawling grass in the first photo? The one on the white sand? I'm looking for something like that to fill up the foreground of my 45-gallon tank.

Hey, haven't seen you around on the forum in a while. How are things with you? We miss you! :)
