180g Malawi Hap & Peacock Show Tank *Pic Heavy*

    Default 180g Malawi Hap & Peacock Show Tank *Pic Heavy*

    Some of the links to the photos were missing in my last tank journal, so I thought I'd bring them back in this thread.

    Background Information:
    This tank has been running for about 4-5 years now. I currently have two powerbeads to keep the water moving, and have a Fluval FX5 and Rena XP3 keeping the water clean. The tank came with aragonite sugar sand, but I eventually switched to pool filter sand after getting tired of scooping cupfuls of aragonite from the bottom of my filters. Lighting is a DIY setup with LED strip lights bought online.

    Staying consistent with my previous journal, I'll post a few photos from previous years. Current information and photos can be found from post #6 onwards.
