Brad's ADA 60f Mangrove Tunnel

Recommended Posts

Took the dog to the beach on Sunday morning and took a look around the rocks during the low tide. There are definitely much better spots for legitimate tide pools, but just happened to come across these.

Great shots buddy and thanks for sharing!  I can wonder around tide pools for hours.  Always something to see.

Looks good! Is the tank still fresh water?

Looks very promising.  Are you planning to add macro algaes to the scape or keep it sand and mangroves or try you hand at intergrating corals into the scape?

Thanks, there is some salt in it, like 3 cups of water from the other tank.

Probably just sand, have the other mangrove tank with macros and coral. I want to grow these out and eventually make a larger tank based around them

Lots of new buds and fresh growth, that's great to see! Are you adding anything to the water to fertilize them?

 

I am impressed with your patience! I love this project, I can't believe it's already week 36!

This looks so good bro...I would be tempted to throw some redspot cardinals in there.

Thanks! Sort of out of sight, out of mind. Think it would be a little harder if the tank wasn't tucked away in a closet. 

 

I throw in some Seachem Flourish Excel whenever I remember, and ghost feed it some pellet food.

Thanks man. I don't think I will try adding fish again, those neon tetra's got sucked up by the AC20 within a few hours.

I've got an AC70 running on a 20 gallon tank :P Had to use those generic fluval prefilter sponges after I found the first one swimming in the filter looking slightly beat up after its trip through the impeller...

I forget that it's tucked away in the closet! You should stick a tomato plant in there or something :lol:

I don't know how I missed this build (probably because I was AWOL for the better part of 8 month) but it looks like you are having amazing growth so far. I do enjoy watching your mangrove projects develop. They always inspire me to try my own hand at mangroves but they are just so hard to get your hands on over here.

Sand is a mess right now, just took off the top layer of green scum. Roots are everywhere now and micro sword is still growing.

If you send me a box, shipping supplies and a prepaid label, I will send you as many as you want. ;)
