I have to admit that I am jealous of the man. It isn’t every day that someone gets to set up a 220 gallon tank.
It doesn’t help that Jolley is also the person who really dove into the hobby with me pretty heavily back in like 95. He saw my tank and had to have one…
Now his has the potential to pass mine….
I have busted the guys balls for not setting it up faster, but I have to admit that the joy of setting one up is part of the fun and should be savored like I feel he is doing.
He has a 75 planted you can see here…(his 1st dirt tank too I might add)
We found this stump and it is truly amazing. Finding good hardscape is tough to do, but when accomplished, there is nothing better…
As you can tell in the video, I easily talked him into putting the stump in there…oh god help us!
Here are some of the comments off of the Youtube channel…
Woah, a Full on planted tank with an Arrowana?! Amazing! Should also get a catfish.
No, He should get a Snake head and three Pirhanna!
I would turn that tank into a community freshwater systems with all kinds of tiny small schooling fish. Swordtails, Platies, mollies, neon tetras, a few iridescent sharks, man that would be awesome. Life all over the place instead of just a few big fish.
have an angle fish sprecies tank only
I am super excited for him….
Here’s what I personally would do with that tank…
I would cover the entire left 1/3 with jungle val. The right 2/3 would be dwarf sag, or some kind of sweet carpeting plant.
I’d cut out a circle of lighter colored gravel infront of the stump and no plant it. There would hopefully chill the HUGE cory cats, or the tiny one. (pigmys)
Black skirt tetras, or serpaes and some kinda surface dweller. Small arrowana would be awesome for several years…
Man, I need another 220 🙂
