    Yeah, I am convinced that I NEED a blackwater tank! I just don't like putting wood in my tanks... I got some driftwood once that after being in my tank for months just decided to sprout some crazy, slimy, white, fuzzy growth on it, and soon afterwords (about a day) I lost three fish!

    The white fuzzy stuff is not unusual however I have never had it kill my fish. I have actually seen my plecos eat it. What I have seen appears to be some type of fungus and it ls slimey.

    Hmmm... Maybe it wasn't the wood then... it was just strange that I never had the fungus stuff before and when it showed up three Tiger Barbs bite the dust?! Crazy coincidence?

    Anyway, where is a good place to get driftwood??? I am thinking my 29 gallon should be a small blackwater setup, seems how it is almost done cycling!!!

    i got my pieces from the local pet store and it was the ones that sink instantly as they are real heavy. and the tannin from it is awsome if your wanting that look. i am glad i went with it as it is completely different when you look at both tanks at the same time.

    Yes I've wired all of that myself, cause I am a DIY kind of guy.

    I gathered all the wood in this tank from the forest and it developed the white fuzz in the beginning, but that disappeared gradually, until the algae took over.

    eocsorymmot is right about the gallons measurement of 47,5. The length of the tank is 100 cm, meaning 39,4 inches.

    Your tank is really awesome. I wanted to do that with my angelfish tank but was afraid that I would get bored with it for no greenery so I opted for a planted tank. Seeing your video makes me want to do it again. I have a chance to purchase a 125g with everything with it for 450. I think I'm going to go for it with altums this time. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Absolutely incredible! I had a small tank like this for some apistos, and I am upgrading a 40 I have to a similar build, but it will include a single species of plants as well.

    Question: Do your angels harass your Cardinal tetras at all? I hear they like to munch on them :/

    They only chase them around a bit, when they defend a spawning site once in a while, but on the everyday behavior they don't bother them at all.
