Hey diggity dank dustin, I just got some boesemani rainbows from the store and they weren't the most colorful and they're still young but right when I put em in my 29 they got a lot better looking. You think there's any chance they'll look as good as yours? lol I know you got some purebreds or something haha

Give the baby tears a a go for the carpet! That eheim filter looks sweet! Been using one for a couple years and it's great , keep us updated on that model as I'm looking to up grade soon. Thanks for the videos ! Merry Xmas

Great video as usual bro. I have noticed that you don't use a whole lot of moss in your tanks. I think it would be sweet to heavily moss your 220 with some bright green moss, or even some dwarf baby tears. Then fill it in with some larger darker plants to offset the color. Good luck with your plan, pumped to see how it will turn out!

Keep it simple and plant that shit with jungle vals and something like dwarf sag. Then you can scatter some other stuff around like anubias and java fern. Once that grows in it will look like a totally natural jungle. Then you could always add some other stuff here and there to see what you like.

How about trying some hardscape? Do you have any tank like that already? You could try it. About eheim... i sent a filter back, because it was leaking... and they said nothing yet. And it was 2 months ago. So... no more eheims for me!

@Dustinsfishtanks best part of rebuilding a tank's is when your done and you did it right the first time you know! that perfect look. just like nature the aquascape must change.to the flow of the water!

Even though you're still figuring out what you're doing with your 220, it already looks sweet. If you stopped now, it's still a million times better than most tanks out there.

As for the Family... Merry Christmas! As for the 220, How about leaving the drift wood where it is? I kinda like how it's leaning... Maybe put another piece to even out the tank, having Java fern travel up the wood and having a flowering plant or two come out the top showing off flowers? (I do like open top tanks) Some Ludwigia and Crypts stuck around and having some baby tears in the front. Just a suggestion... :)

Wow, eniem sent you one beastily filter. You could maybe make up a consumer review of the filter. You know, record the contents of the box, rate the materials, and hook it up... Show how it is doing in a few weeks and review it then. Might get more product from other companies on your doorstep... you have the their target audience here in your channel so you have value to them.

Those fish seem like they are enjoying more space to swim. Maybe you should keep it low maintenance instead of high tech and just show case the awesome fish swimming more in an open river environment. Big piece of drift wood too, like that could be in a river bottom.

Find a huge piece of driftwood with many roots. Leave the jungle val and plant rotala in the corner and ludwigia in the other corner. Place small stones along the bottom of the driftwood for looks and possibly to hold it down. Plant anubias and java fern all over the wood. Grow crypt along the edges of the driftwood.

bring those loaches out with a few more different types highlight those rainbows with alot of jungle vail. lay the log down flat. plant the vails in the back in small clumps with some short grass foregrounding it to keep it from growing in. makes awesome tunnel ways the rainbows and angels love.. the grow some swords on the drift wood. try to make it look like a tree root growing in the river. the use you imagination filling it in!

Do something with Rotala Sp. Green, and mix it with Rotala Rotundifolia. You should try to get matching rocks, along with a carpet plant, something like dwarf hair grass. It would make a great scape.

I would make a species only tank with Melanotaenia boesemani or with the other species where you got a lot of them.
