    Default My former sun-powered aquarium pond & SW


    Just wanna share with you folks my former tanks. Since electricity here can be very expensive I decided to harness the power of the sun to liven (literally) up my freshwater planted tank or FWT.

    The cause of it demise was sheer stupidity on my part, i tried to put something in the sand which eventually broke the bottom glass and the rest is history. This tank is now sitting somewhere in my backyard waiting to be awakened....very soon.

    my dwarf lotus in bloom:

    my favorite water plant ludwigia sedioides



    My first attempt on a salt-water planted tank. (i guess, i am beginning to have this feeling that i really love plants ) Hey folks, if one is into sw keeping please and a newbie like me, one is better off with 75g tank (or larger) for starters. Next time, i would buy a new tank rather than using my decade old 15g tank (though it was thriving) was a disaster in the making.

    i miss that mandarin goby

    Hope you enjoy it!

    Very nice tanks. i love the shot entitled 'overcrowding'. I have a plant tank in my house. It is a 55 gal aquarium and everyone who visits always wants to know what kind of fish I have in there. LOL. no fish just plants. I also keep a 10 gal aquarium in my office at the university where I work. Just plants - no fish.
