 Hi  guys,
 
 ah  nice  to  see  some  people  visit  the  UKAPS  (UK  Aquatic  Planted  Society)  forum.  That  is  where  you  can  see  the  full  build  of  this  tank.
 
 
 So  for  some  stats:  
 
 dimensions:  244cmx93cmx70cm  high,  Acrylic  ~  1,600  litres  gross  volume.
 
 Lighting:  2x  4ft  ATI  powermodules  (432w)  T5
 
 Filtration:  Eheim  2080,  Fluval  fx5,  Tetratec  1200,  Aquamanta  400
 
 Flow:  in  addition  to  filtration  2x  MP40  poweheads
 
 Heating:  2x  300w  external  Hydor  heaters
 
 Substrate:  Aquasoil  Malaya,  Tetra  substrate,  unipac  Zambezi  sand.
 
 Hardscape:  2x  trees...well  roots,  redmoor  root  and  Welsh  mountain  blue  stone
 
 Co2:  2xco2  reactors  (from  Aquamas,  Germany,  very  good  quality),  2x  5kg  co2  bottles,  co2  injected  through  the  two  smaller  filters.
 
 
 Just  incase  some  of  you  did  not  realise,  I  am  in  the  UK,  not  India.  I  origially  came  on  this  site  because  I  was  curious  to  know  what  the  hobby  was  like  in  India.  
 
 Regarding  the  Congo,  she  is  the  last  of  a  shoal  of  seven  i  originally  had  in  2004  when  she  lived  a  400  litre  aquarium  along  with  Peruvian  angels,  cardinals  and  Rummys.
 
 Nowadays  though  i  am  much  more  in  to  keeping  and  breeding  rainbowfish,  oh  and  ofcourse  I  love  those  denisoni  barbs.  Asthetically  the  tank  would  look  better  if  i  kept  only  one  or  two  species  in  larger  numbers,  but  i  have  to  compromise  given  my  interest  in  rainbows.
 
 I  am  sure  you  are  all  familar  with  those  classic  rainbows;  the  Boesmani,  kutubu  (Blue)  and  Praecox(neon).  However  there  are  many  more  species.  However  even  with  the  commonly  found  ones,  mass  production  has  lead  to  poorer  quality  and  colour  formation.  Therefore  nearly  all  the  species  I  keep  are  now  from  dedicated  Breeders  in  Belgium,  Netherlands  and  Germany.  I  few  weeks  ago  I  drove  to  Belgium  and  brought  back  several  species  to  the  UK.  Many  are  only  fry  incl  Boesmani  from  lake  Aitinjo,  smaller  and  more  colourful  than  the  more  common  Ayamaru  boesmani.

 Thats  one  humongous  setup,  I  can  sit  in  your  living  room  all  day  long  enjoying  the  view.
 
 I  see  that  you  are  using  quite  a  few  different  filters  on  it  and  I  think  you  can  provide  us  with  some  good  comparison  on  performance  of  each  of  them.
 
 Goodluck  with  new  rainbows  Thumb Up

 I  have  a  few  filters  on  different  tanks,  i  would  rate  the  Eheim  and  the  FX5  the  best  in  terms  of  perfomance  and  reliability.  The  fx5  is  the  most  powerful  and  highest  tunower,  Eheim  2080  is  better  for  filter  media  volume  and  also  it  is  more  efficent.
 
 
 [quote]What  do  you  dose?  Is  is  PMDD/EI  or  branded  fertilizers?[quote]
 
 I  use  EI  with  40-50%  weekly  water  changes.  They  are  not  branded  ferts,  just  powder  KNO4,  KH2PO4  and  traces  direct  into  the  tank.  traces  alternate  days  to  the  the  macros.

 Nitin                

 
 Hi,  we  have  quite  a  good  supply  and  the  aquarium  industry  is  well  established  but  the  UK  is  not  great  for  rainbowfish,  mainland  europe;  Belgium-Netherlands-Germany  are  the  best.
 
 For  India  though  I  would  have  thought  you  guys  have  the  best  access  to  native  fish  and  plants  and  the  big  aquatic  breeding  industry  is  only  relatively  near  in  Singapore  and  Indonesia.  
 
 I  think  India  should  compete.
 
 
 Batman,
 
 the  carpetting  plants  are  elocharis  parvula  on  the  left,  staurogyne  further  back  with  e.tennelus  and  on  the  right  there  is  more  crypt.  parva.

 Hi  all,
 
 things  have  changed  since  I  was  last  here.  I  have  moved  house  and  had  to  move  the  tank  too,  nature  has  since  taken  over:
 
 
 
 Ferns  and  mangroves  growing  on  top  of  the  tree  stump:
 
 
 Upate  video,  unfortunately  is  not  as  sharp  after  uploading,  but  you  can  upgrade  the  setting  to  700  pixels:

 Hope  you  like.   Smile  
 
 Sanj
